Linux Position?? Word?

July 8, 2008 at 8:26 am 3 comments

I just LOVE seeing stuff like this on job postings:

Please forward a Word version of your resume to bigmoron@stupidcompany.com for review and interview.

Linux System Administrator

Full-time employee position with:

  • Full benefits
  • 401K
  • Growth potential
  • Competitive pay
  • Work independence

The job is for a LINUX SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR!  A resume in Word formatting?

Yeah I know, it’s the “industry standard” however if I were asking for a Linux sysadmin, as a test, I would ask for it in Openoffice format…. 😀

    Just to be a pest, you should submit a resume in .sxw format after tarring/gzipping it. 🙂

    I know what you mean, but frankly, the person who will review the resume probably doesn’t run Linux, and probably doesn’t care to run Linux. They probably just want to open the resume, print it, and leave it on the desk of the hiring manager.

    That should be posted on FailBlog. 🙂
