Does ODF Have a Future?

Depending on where you're looking, it's not uncommon for HR people to use some software to search for certain buzz words in a resume. The lock on .doc files may be (have been) as much a limitation of their software than anything else.

HR? Who be 'dat?

My first job out of college ('84) and '90 have had two memorable things:

1. HR was involved with the former, as they were the ones running with headhunters.

2. The second one was via a headhunter. I was handed a clipboard with paperwork. I hadn't it back to them and said something to the effect, "I have to leave". I stopped by the first phone booth I could find and called the responsible party. His first comment? "That was short -- how did it go?" "I am terminating our relationship. One of the things which is supposed to happen is to bypass the HR people, regardless of how tightly woven are the organizational chart. Besides, don't you get a commission if you place me? That should make certain burdens a lot lighter."

Word got around that this guy was doing nothing but pulling ads out of the newspaper and cold-calling both parties.

bottom line: I don't go through HR and I don't fill out applications.

They've decided to duke it out in court and created several "john doe" defendants until they can sort out who is whom (and even if they are in the US). Mind you, the courts have been fickle about what they will and will not hear as well as what their judgements will be.

Previously, Steve Linford has been sued successfully...despite the fact he's not in the US. (other attempted suits have claimed he is in the US.
