Today I received a programmer’s CV from a random recruiter…
Under experience, the most recent entry has a URL provided which points to a login form. From which I can tell nothing. So, that’s pointless/useless and illustrates nothing.
Well, he’s scored OK on buzzword bingo from the above.
*Clicks on link*.
The site turns out to be :
- Frames based
- Contain no real content (clicking on links calls a ‘submitForm(“rah”)’ JS function…. )
- Be missing error handling (e.g. trying http://sillysite/rah/rah/rah/rah -> PHP exception trace)
- Clearly based on a quick start tutorial (view -> source etc) due to commented out code embedded within
From the domain name I can at least discover who the CV belongs to; that seems to be the only benefit of it. But now I know to avoid him.
Oh, and did I mention how under ‘Main Skills’ Dropbox is listed.
So, no, sorry… I don’t think I’ll consider hiring you for ~30k+.
