   RE: [xml-dev] OFFTOPIC: Job Opportunity

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

To me you are a face on a book I prize.  To the 
people trying to hire a technical writer for 
a job that requires some very localized knowledge, 
you have the wrong resume and perhaps, not the 
right security clearances.  To many who work 
in New Jersey, you would be just another English 
bloke I guess (and proud of it), but mysterious 
because why would you want to be in New Jersey 
when you could be in England?

No more job postings to this list.  Too risky. :-)

I didn't perceive any slight at all. Just a linguistic inaccuracy. To
Len, I am a foreigner or a non-American (and proud of it). I am no more
"international" than he is.
