in reply to Is PerlMonks relevant for one's Perl marketability?

      Do you have some related experience?

More than once when interviewing for a Perl position I have had an employer ask me if I were a member of Perl Monks and then have them look up my profile.

Similarly more and more potential employers are using resources like Google and LinkedIN to find out more information about potential employees. It is not a bad idea to "keep your nose clean" on the Internet these days and make sure you don't say bad things about your current employer on Facebook, Perl Monks, MySpace (does that even live any more?), LinkedIn or any other forums.
