In order to get unemployment insurance checks from the State of California I am required to use CalJobs, their web-based job search system. It isn't bad. I've already found one suitable opening. However, I also found this job...

Wow. That'd look pretty impressive on a resume.

Actually, that just looks pretty impressive.

I really don't want to know what the FCSBCDPM/ DPMWMI actually does: I have a feeling it's not as exciting as it sounds.

a "hurr" question

are there still defense jobs down there? for some reason i thought the bulk of those were gone by the late 80s and early 90s.

Don't take it. You'll end up like that guy at the beginning of Robocop, blown away by the prototype version that won't recognize that you've disarmed.

is that an internal job?

Or is your warrior machine interface about the problem solving scenarios, in which you are actually a public facing position responsible for the irradication of unsatisfactory elements that do not interface well with teh Warrior Machine?

Re: is that an internal job?

I know the feeling.

Things have not been the same since Dick Cheney went into deep protective cover as a part of the super secret fourth branch of government...

ah yes... those halycyon days when the nation supported the one true and only blood sacrifices demanded by true biblical literalism and the correct implementation of the dominionist apostalic succession....

Re: is that an internal job?

those were such happier times....

It was not like bob up in accounting was going to eat anyone's eyes....

But now, folks just run screaming when they meet zombies with PowerPoints and not so hidden agenda's cleanly laid out on GANTT charts...
