Before coming over here to Australia from Ireland, I put my CV (ie. resume) up on (I initially assumed I’d be looking for work over here — it’s since turned out that my Irish employers are happy to keep me on, even when I’m on the other side of the world.)

I’ve been getting loads of job offers (about 3 a week, by email and phone) from companies and recruiters in the US, since I put the CV up.

I think I’ve just figured out why… a search for “unix cv resume” on Google returns my CV as the first hit!

No wonder. Any half-awake recruiter who wants someone who can “do UNIX” will try a Google search. Better figure out some way of fixing it to get a lower ranking…
