IT Resources Group
Web Developer
So you were a top Web Developer, once, many years ago, until the �correction�. Now nobody cares and you are shunned in public, much as lepers were in the fifteenth century. Your modern-day equivalent of the chiming bell and vile burbling exclamations of �Unclean! Unclean!� is the obnoxious ringtone on your expensive mobile. There�s a good chance you listen to either Sisters of Mercy and Bauhaus or elaborate Paul Oakenfold remixes, with a bit of bootlegged Chemical Brothers thrown in for good measure. Maybe you find yourself missing the ashtray completely, and your ESC through F3 keys are thoroughly clogged up with burned, cancerous grey flakes. For better or for worse, you�re familiar with such repugnant images as goatse.cx and know what STFU means. In all probability your beverage of choice is Jolt/Columbian Cola, and you have the weeping stomach ulcers to prove it. You give copies of Photoshop 7.0 to your friends, thereby depriving a fat CEO somewhere of a heated driveway. You have a world-crushing collection of MP3s. Your author of choice: Neal Stephenson or William Gibson. You have every volume of Gaiman�s Sandman series, though you decided after Volume III that it`s all a bit of a wank. Sometimes, you pretend you are in The Matrix. Your half-elf mage/rogue is at Level 9, and has actually worked out how to put a Bag of Holding within another Bag of Holding without imploding Ravenloft. You can pronounce "Urotsukidoji" without hurting yourself, and can rocket-jump better than anyone you know. You have a bit of an attitude when it comes to Windows XP, and you like to recompile kernels.
Your spine looks like a u-bend.
Others may call you freakish. We call you lovely. And in reward for your loveliness, we would like to offer you this mildly exciting opportunity, if your idea of excitement is a RAM upgrade:
This is a fun little two week contract for a reasonably experienced Web Developer with plenty of HTML (well, duh), JavaScript and ASP know-how. Ideally you will also be fluent in the, and I quote, �uploading of ASP pages from a SAP business connector�. I said that out loud and Shub-Niggurath appeared and attempted to devour my soul through some impressive shambling and ominous tentacle-writhing, so I won�t investigate it any further.
But anyway, that�s the deal. Either you like it or you don�t, and we�re not about to tell you either way. It�s a two week contract for a company here in the city, and will probably be paying about $25 per hour, commensurate with experience. So apply now (or don�t), or call Gary Fernandes for more information.
Please contact Gary Fernandes quoting reference number SK/GFWD on:
phone (03) 9629 6788 � fax (03) 9629 5788

WOW! That's the first job posting that I've seen that actually has a realistic skill set...

The scary thing is that I understood like 90% of that...

I think the renumeration is a bit ridiculous too even for junior or intermediate positions. but they probably will determine the real salary from one's qualifications,certifications, experiences, skills etc..
I dont it will be up to 80K but the positions r real.
by the way I have see lots ads for ppl with .NET experience in C#+ASP+C++,VB for more than 3 years too hahaha. C# wasnt even around the year b4 last year.
I also have seen a job ad for senior developer with 10 years experience in J2EE a while ago.
