comment Job hopping, is it a problem?
Self-respect doesn't pay the bills. I wouldn't hire someone like you becasue you sound to me as if you havea an attitude problem which is why you think every job is too horrible to stay at. I have self-respect, but I still have learned to get along in less than perfect places becasue there are only less than perfect places.

comment What do you put in the “Computer Skills” section of your resume?
If you tell me you have a skill of something you want to work in but have no experience in, I guarantee you won't get past the intervview when I ask you what you did using that technology and you will never be considered for any other position at my company again as that is called lying! A resume is a description of what you have done and if you put anything in it that is suspect, you will be eliminated.

comment Job hopping, is it a problem?
A person who accepts more than two crap jobs in a row has suspect judgement.If someone shows they can't hold a job for longer than a year over ten years, most hiring managers will eliminate them. This can especially be true at good companies where they have the pick of the prospects. Why should I waste my time on someone who can't work for anybody when I can get this equally qualified person who has shown he can? It costs a lot of money to hire and train a new employee. So yes you should stay at the crap job for longer if you are getting into this territory.

I once had a Business Analyst tell me requirements were not needed. Just what is the job of a business analyst again? Oh yeah to write requirements! We would get requirements like make this work like hkjk.com does.

comment What should every programmer know?
"Look for the bad in the buzz" Boy do I see people who need to learn this one. Preferably before your whole system is based on something that works fine with 12 test records but which never perform well with the 20,000,000 records you wil have in year two.
