    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: My answer to employers taking advantage of folks having a hard time finding a job in this economy. Job hunting daily is bad enough without having to deal with employers who want you to speak Swahili for low or no pay. 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.
