I call bullshit.

If you don't recognize what you wrote was offensive you need to grow up and enter the current century.

Hey everyone, thanks for the constructive criticism, the cyber-bullying and the death threats. It was fun. I've been a very successful recruiter for the past 15 years. There is nothing I'd rather do. I love my job. I like forming lasting relationships with both clients and candidates alike. When Friday rolls around I usually throw a bunch back with a couple of cool developers I know. Sometimes I hang with clients too, but it's not brown-nosing. It's friends hanging out with friends.m 

I received 26 negative replies including harassing phone calls and pics of male genitals and someone also said they were going to kill my cat and they sent me a pic of a dead cat hanging from a door with a dagger through it. While the replies and the threats and the lude pics and the cat thing was terrible I'm not going tot waste my time replying to the negative stuff. I simply delete the negative stuff and go on with my day. I only care about the positive stuff. I received so many positive replies, how I made their day and they laughed so hard, etc, many of which were women. I didn't get a single negative reply from a female. Maybe I'll get one later. I'm sure you all hope I do. I spoke to multiple interested parties today and submitted 4 to the client and they've requested an interview from 2 (for now). 

People often criticize me on how I do my job, but I never criticise the developers, programmers, designers, etc I work with. Do you know why I don't? It's because I'm not a programmer and I don't have any advice for them aside from dress nice, try not to drink before an interview, bring a resume, be on time and so on. I guess you've all been the epitome of a perfect recruiter in your past. I thank you for your expert advice, I'll take it all under consideration. 

I'm gonna let my folks hold onto my cat for a couple of months just in case.

Have a nice day. 

Thank you,

P.S. The job is real. The other stuff was obviously a joke. It was supposed to be funny. That's all. I'm sorry if I offended anyone. 

I have a Greenwich, CT client looking for a Ruby on Rails Developer for a 1-year contract engagement with a 99.99% chance of extension. You could do this job one-handed in a club (think Pacha or Marquee) standing right in front of the speaker while scantily-clad go-go girls provocatively gyrate to house music in an enclosed multi colored shower/cage-like room. The job pays to $125 per hour, but they can swing a few extra dollars for the strippers. Master jedi, super ninja, Chuck Norris coding skills required.  

Local candidates preferred, but applicants interested in relocating considered too. While the client would prefer a 100% on-site employee, a day or two working from home would be allowed once they know you're the king or queen of honesty, killer skills and the strongest work ethic ever. US Citizens or Green Card holders only please. Full job/client details shared with qualified applicants. 


* 5+ years of general web development experience and at least 3+ years of Ruby on Rails experience required
* Excellent understanding of the MVC architecture and OOP design and principles
* Strong background in HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Comfortable with SQL
* Experience with bug tracking and version control software
* Comfortable working in a team environment
Shops will not be considered unless you can spare one of your rock stars for the duration.
If you are interested in this super easy job, please submit your resume and monetary needs to [address removed]
