One of the things I have discovered about putting your resume on a job search site is that you really can get all kinds of the wrong sort of interest.
Take this for example: I've gotten half a dozen e-mails over the last few months saying I should consider becoming a programmer for Too Spoiled. My curiosity piqued by what a company with such a shallow-sounding name could be, I looked at their web site. Too Spoiled is a social networking site for actors, models, casting managers, and agents... or anyone who wants to just look like one I guess. And oh yes, I nearly forgot the dating site! I can't forget the dating site! You get to date models and actors! Who haven't made any money yet! Where being "spoiled" enters into all this, I cannot imagine.
Needless to say, I will not be sending them a resume. I admire their entrepreneurial spirit... but I can't see how there is much money to be made from networking and dating struggling actors and models. If I wanted to be doing that some kind of web design, I would be trying to work for Solomodels. They have an innovative web interface, and no dating allowed.
