Who, exactly, is calling?

Who, exactly, is calling?

Well, I may owe Careerbuilder an apology. All those junky emails claimed they’d found me through Careerbuilder, but are we really going to trust the authors of junky phishing emails?

Meanwhile, turns out that Monster just had a major security breach – with somewhere between most and all of their user data stolen. Resum├ęs were not accessed, we’re told, and it sounds like more an email phishing expedition, as opposed to identity theft. (After all, aren’t job seekers amongst the poorest segment of society? Is that who you really wanna be?)

Nonetheless, I’m gonna be vigilant, and perhaps change my birthday. That oughtta fool ’em good. I always wanted a true spring birthday anyway, as opposed to my current mud season.
