my job is hesitant to post a job posting because http://indeed.com will scrape it leading to 1000s of unqualified emails. anyone know how to get around this?
Write any contact information as a clojure expression, like
(apply str (map (comp char dec int) "jogpAdpnqboz/dpn"))
Omit the contact details and have people DM you for the full posting?
Assuming you’d be willing to answer the DMs
FWIW I got my current position responding to someone who said “DM me for details”
slack dms are a bad vehicle. very easy for them to get lost in history
but that's nice
I also did something similar on a different Slack, where I was on the receiving end of the DMs, got back a few responses in the first few days, then nothing after that. Of course, I have next to zero DM activity usually, so getting lost wasn’t a problem for me.
Some job postings require you to
curl your application to some API endpoint, with a secret that you must figure out first.
Till now I thought it was just nerdy humor but now I see why might one want such a thing...
That was also my experience when posting an opening here and the FP slack. Received a few DMs over first few days. And did end up finding someone!
