I get it: "then", "than", "there's", "there are". Stop reading (and I did), it can't be coherent.
Huh? Could you specifically quote where you found this incoherent for those reasons? I fear you've confused the heck out of me here.
Edit: even stranger, that post was at 10:38 PM before the article released. wha?
I'm sorry to say there isn't a big enough facepalm emoticon for the current state of job advertising in our industry. You're competing with employers looking for the most bang for their buck, HR firms/departments who know as much about tech as most techies know about oil rig equipment, local laws regarding job duty requirements, Visa (not the credit card) Renewal laws, and consulting/hiring firms who know more buzzwords then technology. They've had more practice at this then you probably have, and it can be difficult figuring out what's good and what's not.
Let's review a concept I brought up in my previous article before we get started. For SQL Server, there's 5
"then" and "there's"... I didn't find it incoherent. I claimed "it can't be coherent". If I were reviewing resumes, you go in the Engrish pile.
Oh the irony of that last sentence!
Sorry, but the professional editor in me just can't help but point out that, "If I were reviewing resumes, you go in the Engrish pile." is grammatically incorrect. It should be "you'd" or "you would", at the very least. To be actually correct, it should be "yours would", since you presumably wouldn't actually be putting the person in that pile, but their résumé.
Also, you mispunctuated the sentence before that.
Very, very funny. I hope it was intentional. If not, change that to "very, very sad".
Craig: Good article. Considering the horrible grammatical, etc., errors in the quoted job postings, a few typos on your part just seemed to add flavor to the whole thing. Claim it was on purpose, to highlite that, and you're golden.
