And, the flip side is true. We may take a job thinking we found the
"perfect job." But, quite often, there is such a fly in the ointment. For
example, I was hired to code. I hadn't coded now today. I've filled out
incredibly tedious paper work for <snip: can't discuss>. And, I woke up at
7 am to do a skype interview with someone who was supposed to be the best
thing since chopped bread and he didn't quite understand why a generator is

That's why I'm trying to fix this problem with a tool the recruiters
(internal or external) can use :)
