Fuck That Job
Sometimes you gotta love the job seeker's voice. Tanya B's weblog, Fuck That Job, has been a nine month rant on the pain of finding a job. Her tagline:

She quotes horribly written job ads, unbelievable correspondence between recruiters and candidates, and engineering jobs paying below the poverty line. You can feel the vitriol ooze through the html.
