Writing a Great Employment Ad
A writer on JOS asks how best to write a high-tech employment ad. I wrote:
I've wondered whether putting something cryptic that --- only hard-core tech-heads would understand --- might filter out the non-conforming folks and leave you with some good candidates.
Kind of a Google Ad serving program, only offline. For instance, I was searching for "swish++" and got a Google employment ad.
So... how about something like this (modify to fit technologies you're interested in):
"AES, Blowfish, GRE tunnels, multi-factor, PGP SDK, IPtables/NetFilter, ... if you're savvy, email us a CV at mailto:dir-at-badblue.com."
p.s., uhmmm, not to be a shill, but do email me a CV if you're savvy in those areas and a great C/C++ Win32/Linux developer to boot!
