The “sparse resume” experiment from earlier in the month–where all the resume had was my years of experience in certain disciplines–didn’t get much response. So I went back to the old self-entertainment option of posting a resume to CareerBuilder.
Got the obligatory “become an agent for Farmers Insurance” spam from Weston Philpot III. He’s almost always the first to spam me when I post to CareerBuilder and apparently he’s on his game.
And thanks to CareerBuilder, I was targeted by criminals in less than 24 hours, receiving this email at the address I set up specifically for my latest resume post to CareerBuilder.

Second, you’ve got this guy on a 12-hour Skype call to interview people for a job to which they did not apply?
Not even sure what the game is, but I ain’t playing. And CareerBuilder, WTAF? Do you screen ANY of the people you give access to your database?
