Rather than write "familiar," I always use "proficient."

Minor, but it sounds better.

That pisses me off.  "Knowledgeable" maybe - but claim you are proficient and you AREN'T I will not only slash your name from my list but will let some other people know not to hire you.

RAR!

I'm not saying fib on your resume! I can't help it if you attract loads of choades into your interview rape dungeon.

Claiming proficiency in the case of the level of experience that Lantyssa mentioned in those systems would constitute fibbing though.

Totally agree with Cheddar. We catch you using 'proficient' when what you really meant was you once sat in a seminar about it, we peg you to the wall like a butterfly.

My company is hiring for people with PeopleSoft/HRIS experience. Priority is for Consultants and Business Analysts, but we're very much short staffed and expanding fast. We're located in Mississauga, ON (403/Hurontario). You can read up on the company here.

I don't have job descriptions because we're in the process of revamping all of ours, but the company works on the premise that anyone with a little bit of exposure can learn to be an expert.

If you're interested, send me a PM.

Link doesn't work for me Cheddar.

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something.

Try verizon.com/fiberjobs and search for your state.  We have a ton of positions opening across our footprint.

FYI - when something DOES post make sure you apply within 24 hours.  Jobs with Verizon go QUICK.

That's not that unusual for startup jobs here in the SF Bay Area. The company I work for has similar "benefits" (no arcade DDR machine though).

Google, which of course is not a startup anymore, has really ridiculous "benefits".

But even with all that they are losing people to companies like Facebook.

Competition for top notch engineers is really fierce right now here.

Google's a big place, and while it's far less broken than most companies of its size and generally a great place to work, a tiny startup it is not.

I kinda scratch my head at the folks leaving to work for Facebook -- I could certainly see going to throw the dice at another startup at some point, but Facebook would not be a place I'd leave for.  Yuck.

Competition for great engineers is always fierce -- even well after the dot com bubble burst when people were leaving the bay area and traffic seemed to be getting better, hiring really good engineers was hard to do.  The good people tend to not have trouble finding jobs.

I'm sure they are, but FB isn't small either.  I may be completely wrong, but I'm not convinced they're going to magically go public for a gazillion dollars and make everybody multi-millionaires.  Of course when I look back at the kind of total nonsense that made people money during the dotcom boom, who knows. ^^

They were valued at $50 billion recently. There stock is trading at $25 per share right now putting them at an even higher valuation. (something like $257 billion at a $25 per share price IIRC)

Yup.  Aware of that.  I think it's silly.  From what I know of how their technology works and how social networks have risen and fallen in the past, I fundamentally do not believe they are as unstoppable/undisplacable as the people who value them at $50B do. 

Might be I'm totally wrong and unable to embrace the future of the Internet which is like buttons and friends lists and absolutely no meaningful privacy control.  I've been wrong before.

I do think you over-value privacy. Not personally, of course. But the sheep will willingly give up all their privacy for some stupid shiny.

Having an early gmail (my first initial + last name), I'm inundated with shit from everyone in THE WORLD with my initial + last name signing up for all kinds of shit. Maybe working in telemarketing when I was a kid lifted the curtain on this shit, pre-internet, for me. Who doesn't have a dozen emails and layers of obfuscation to at least attempt to stymie the non-stop assault of capitalism?

Facebook is going to make a fucking mint for the people that jumped ship when it goes public. Its realistic longterm viability is kinda meh, but that initial IPO is gonna be nuts. GS wouldn't be backing it and structuring it to milk the shit out to its HNW clients if it wasn't.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

Yes! Awesome place. 100k population so big enough for most everything you need while maintaining a small town/mountain town feel. The economy weathered the recent downturn fairly well from what I have been told.
Its especially nice if you are into the outdoors at all (close to skiing, the Appalachian Trail, Blueridge Mountains, etc etc), if you are more into a thriving opera company and symphony not so much. I dont know anything about the local school system if you have kids.

Most of the positions in Seattle are Kindle related, so I think they may be gearing up for a new Kindle launch, which is rather cool. I'm hoping for color, or maybe some enhanced tablet like functionality.

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something.

FWIW I agree.  But if you have relevant experience some recruiters might still call.
