For the past few years I’ve had a rather obtuse (and some might say caustic) profile on LinkedIn. It surved it’s purpose: Hide me from the recruters. And it mostly worked. That is, except on the recuters that play WoW. 😉
Now as those recruters cycle through their jobs and hand over their dead leads to even greener recruters to retry – I’ve ended up on an inaccurate hodge-podge of job lists that are, well, just not my thing…
- 3 month contract job in michigan, $25k – like I’m going to relocate my familiy for that
- Multiple Stock trading firms
- Require: 10+ years C++ expert knowlege, Job: InstalShield scripter
- Consultant Jobs
- Sales support engineering
- 3D Artist – wtf?
- Archival media engineer – put the tape in the backup tape drive?
- GoogleTV media codecs
It’s taken a while. But I’ve finally come to the conclusion that there’s a certain value in having an accurate career description. Sure, I may get a few more recruter calls – but that’s OK. I’ll deal with it. It’s fun answering calls from strangers using my customer service / answering machine voice.
Over the next few months my linkedin profile should start to look a little more “professional”. For tracking purposes, here’s some of the original text…
I let this page go idle for way too long. So long that an old (unpatched) install of a web app let some junk in & started auto-posting spam everywhere 🙁
So I’m starting over with a fresh WordPress install in a new user directory 🙂 Sure, I’ll start over – but that’s OK. I’m a horrible writer and the world is better off for not having to read all of my musings. That’s what Facebook and Google+ are for.
This time I’ll lean on Dreamhost’s commitment to automaticaly keep all my One-Click installs up to date.
Sorry about the theme. I’m a programmer, just be glad it’s not RGB(255,0,255) and RGB(0,0,255) with Comic Sans. 😉
Of course I registered jsondart.com
DART = Some new web language announced by Google today @ dartlang.org
Why? I’m JaSON DeARTe, a software engineer and I know how these internet things go. If I didn’t grab the domain now, I’d hate myself later on.
Yes, I know I’m polluting the namespace and adding to possible confusion in the future – but it needed to be done.
