It's actually kind of amusing when you have a job. When you're between them, it
can become infuriating that peope with that level of incompetence have jobs and
you don't.

Although gainfully employed and not looking, my resume is floating around in
cyberspace in dozens of places, and I get a lot of recruiter inquiries based
on my Linked In profile. For years I had listed "Arbortext Epic Editor"
experience ... I had to remove "Epic" because there is a radiology device of
the same name. I was being pelted with "job offers" from recruiters whose
email said, "after close examination of your resume, it is clear that you
are a perfect fit for this position in radiology at so-and-so medical clinic
in Pennsylvania" (I live in Oregon). Obviously a lot of these clowns just
live on keyword search and don't even look at your address.
