*title in the Business Section of the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Monday.
Well, all I can say is, I should bloody well hope so. Would you want to work for an employer so clueless that they did not take advantage of what information they could dig up on a person who was interested in joining their team? I certainly wouldn't.
But I do feel badly about one thing. While I doubt I am ever going to have to worry about a "future employer", if I do, I feel badly for any poor soul who has to wade through the reams of posts, multitudes of random musings and countless inane response to other people's blogs and websites. How exactly are you going to dig up dirt amongst the prolix prose.
So, as a service to future employers, I hereby present a short list of the stuff you are looking for:
1) Evidence that I am politically liberal: Here I dispute the Republican's integrity, here I make fun of George Bush, here I suggest that the election system could be rigged, and here I say positive glowing things about John Kerry. That that is just on my business blog. Go troll through the responses on DailyKOS or read the editorial pages of the Chicago, LA or San Jose newpapers for editor letters. 2) Evidence that I am self aggrandizing and self-promotional: Just search the Gold forum for Midas. It'll make you cringe 3) Evidence that I am overly obsessed with sexual inuendo: Take a look at the Mike Midas and Crystal Coex stories. Need I say more? Oh yeah, and I read vowe.net, even the posts marked Beautiful. 4) Evidence that I am a slacker: Here I describe my laziness about math, and here I start on a project and just never go forward with it, even a year later. 5) Evidence that I say horrible things about people my daughter is dating friends with: Here I put down his taste in PB&J and here I put down his tipping technique. 6) Evidence that I am cruel and heartless to my children, even aside from #5: Here and here I discuss my daughter's (lack of) food sense.
I could go on and on, but I hope that any potential employer has gotten the message by now. This concludes our public service announcement.
