I find myself thoroughly amused by the way companies (and hiring managers) sugar-coat the miserable existence that they're trying to lure you into. I was reminded of this earlier this evening while perusing Craigslist for any sign of hope that I might find a contingency plan in case Google decides not to hire me after all. The following is a snippet of the job listing, and my interpretation of it:


· Experience facilitating a long term IT vision taking into consideration an organization’s business goals; coordinating and leading the implementation of the vision with multi-department database applications.

Translation follows:

"Experience facilitating a long term IT vision" = you know that it will take 4 years to get the shit you need to do your job

"taking into consideration an organization’s business goals;" = we're fucking cheapskates

"coordinating and leading the implementation of the vision with multi-department database applications." = we use Oracle Financials and it's the biggest piece of shit ever. Good luck getting any of your PO's approved.
