The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2 - Page 40  

post #586 of 21760
You definitely want to tweak each CV for the specific company & job position. It might just be adding a few key words from the posted ad that will catch the eye of the HR recruiter that is doing the prescreening. For example, based on what you have said, I would bet your CV talks about .Net & ASP development. Let's say I'm a hiring manager and my job ad says we need a web developer with experience on IIS & SQLServer, you and I both know that this is a Microsoft shop, and your experience in .Net & ASP would be directly applicable - but the HR recruiter does NOT know that. But, by adding IIS & SQLServer in the same sentence where you have .Net & ASP, the HR recruiter will happily send your resume along to me for review.

True. As said, so far I've been using a general catch-all CV. I'm going to have to tweak my CV if and when I start looking for other jobs (am holding fingers crossed for this one though). Thanks for the tip.

Cool - one other tip - it is hit & miss whether the hiring manager ever sees the cover letter. Most of the time all I see is the resume and I never know whether there was no cover letter or if the recruiter just didn't bother including it. I would consider the cover letter a secondary item.

Oh - and I think the recruiting applications like taleo and brassring are evil HR tools, intended to eliminate ALL potential candidates to a position. Why would a company need to know the phone number of an ex-boss I had 8 years ago BEFORE they have even determined if I am a good fit to the position? Those apps are ALL about filtering! wink.gif

The V4 drivers are still very much in production.

 

What Rhydon stopped doing was offering full builds, including aluminum cups branded with the Magnum name. Now he just sells the drivers as a stand-alone.

The relationship between students and the faculty is just too non-personal in 99% of the time to even ask for references. They live their life, and we live ours. They help us if need be, but don't get involved with us or our lives in any way, shape or form.

In my short experience with university so far I have learned that they do a good job in creating a closer relationship to your professors and tutors. But I heard that it varies a lot between different faculties as well. My course is the quantitative science department, which is a relatively small department in any case.

I don't know what is more frightening, robots making autonomous life/death decisions, or an academician depending on Skynet to be ethical.

Oh, you are hiring Coq De Combat? Take me too. I can stand on my head, for example. What else can I do? Hm.

I can't say I've studied this in detail but I think you'd have to go back pretty far before women get equated with inanimate objects or animals as opposed to 'just' second or third class citizens.  OTOH if you go back to before agriculture I'm pretty sure it evens out again...

It's really a mind-bending exercise in chauvinism. He says that women are basically material automatons, objects penetrated by everything in the universe, and everything they do is an effort to impress men who are themselves spiritual and nobel creatures. A woman's sexuality is merely animal instinct, whereas the man aspires to a higher form of love. The tension between sexes arises because man projects these lofty aspirations onto lowly woman who is incapable of ever living up to such standards, as she is completely devoid of anything nobel. The man is actually just projecting the love of himself, or rather the love he has for his best qualities.

 

So that's pretending to be psychology instead of philosophy or theology?  Could have fooled me.  Also, the idea of going so far that you make Freud facepalm is delightfully hilarious...

I'm getting a headache from just reading your summary of it.  OTOH maybe if I was a woman it would actually be easier for me to read because I'd know with greater certainty that it wasn't true.  Kinda like how the more ridiculous and far out an insult gets the less impact it has on me because deep down I know how far it is from the truth.

Those black and white ebony cups look yummy...

Yummy is indeed the word. They look like pot of Duo Penotti



In my opinion they are aesthetically hideous, on the other hand.

I'd be paying for the bulk of it in a year's time (or more) anyway, since it takes that long to build, so I sort of see it as not having much impact on my budget right now. Yeah, kind of irresponsible and excessive, but...

 

...Justin says he can make it in purple. My resistance is crumbling.

 

Edit: Also in trying to justify it to myself, I think "hey you'll have a tube amp and a solid state amp, so with the BHSE you'll have a hybrid and thus all your basis will be covered." Plus the sound signature is sort of going in the opposite direction compared to the LL, so there's that too.

Anything else to stand out from the crowd? Think hard...
