  • Mood:

Work solicitations. Translation; AGGGGH!

So, despite the driving positive emotions that I will be offered a job Thursday or Friday I still keep my options open and keep pushing my resume out there.

Today I received a note from a recruiter:
Hello,

My name is name and I am a VP sales, at company. I found your resume on the Internet. You seem to have the necessary qualifications and background for our requirements.

Location- San Francisco CA
Duration- 6 months to one year

We need someone who has a LOT of MICROSOFT WINDOWS development experience. Candidate must have strong experience in C++, COM, WIN32 API, and Windows programming. Additional qualifications such as those listed below are highly desirable.

Experience developing COM/DCOM components is required.
Knowledge/Experience with MAPI and/or WinINet API is highly desirable.
Working knowledge of the Browser Helper Object, COM Plug-In, or Office SDK is a plus.
Working knowledge of the Outlook Object Model, Browser Object Model, or XML DOM is a plus.
Understanding of Windows Registry and Windows File System is desirable.


Please note: The following terms do not exist on my resume anywhere:
MICROSOFT WINDOWS development experience, COM, COM/DCOM,MAPI ,WinINet API, Browser Helper Object, COM Plug-In, Office SDK, Outlook Object Model, Browser Object Model, Windows Registry, Windows File System

What drives me batty is the concept that some VP decided that because I lack 90% of the required experience, I "...seem to have the necessary qualifications and background for our requirements."

Didn't our industry used to actually have a shred of respect?
