JOBSEARCH: JIBBERJOBBER may not have the right metaphor for all situations

I saw an ad on Dice the piqued my interest.

So I went to my Job Seeker’s PIM and said hmmm, let me plug in my ad.

But I really couldn’t do it.

So I said to self, “Self, perhaps the metaphor is wrong?” I was aghast. Such disloyalty. Oh wait, I’m just an unpaid volunteer, trying to help. I can’t be disloyal or wrong. I’m the USER!

Perhaps, the seeker’s model is that there is a think called “ADs”. It has a key of date first seen. And, the seeker may want to capture it for awhile. Maybe forever. And, can’t link it to anything. But yet when the call comes out of the blue from a hunter or HRer, then the seeker would really like to know what set of lies … errr, legends that were told to get some interest.

So, associated with an ad, might be a resume, a cover letter, a recruiter, a company. Or none.

My favorite Jobseeker’s PIM doesn’t accommodate that.

A lot of room for improvement here.
