Job Posting WTF
Would you want this job? (selected excerpts [there was neither rhyme nor reason as to context], grammar theirs)
Heavy xxx experience.
From the yyy side of the business (such as us [who is "us"?]).
Dealt with integrating vendor packaged application (90% of the people on the street
especially those ones who came from companies build everything from scratch. These
people are what I called typical developers).
Integrator more than a developer.
Not a manager, but the talent to work with people outside the group.
The person who fills this job will spend 10%-40% working with Java in the first 6-12 month.
I'm giving out these percentages so the person coming doesn't think that this is a Java
developer position and gets board in a week.
What I need is a person completely different that your typical J2EE developer.
Here's the dilema. As you know [do I?] I manage a group that is responsible for ...
As you know [again, do I?] it's the center of everything.
Person must has a good experience with package xxx ...
You have to prove you are a do-er before asking to be a manager...
Who knows what is going to happen in the future?
We can tune down the requirements for J2EE experience as much as possible...
It rambles on for 2 more pages... So basically, it's a scripting job using some canned package, doing mostly paperwork.
Sounds like the kind of job posting SpectateSwamp would do.

Ha, I bet a headhunter copy pasted exactly what the client emailed them, and never even tried to read it.
