I am tempted to write a book about job search nightmares.  Last week I saw a
posting go up in which I was able to figure out who had written the
requisition.  I posted a note to him the day after the requisition went up
on the job board, and learned that the job had already been filled.

Coincidentally the same day, I saw a requisition go up which used a
nonstandard acronym without definition.  I googled with quotation marks
around the exact acronymed skill they were listing as a requirement.  I got
exactly three hits.  One was a typo.  The other two were found on two
different versions of a resume of the same guy.  I was tempted to post the
guy a note of congratulations on his new position, the same day the
requisition went on the external board.
