in reply to Resume advice for getting a Perl job

It's absolutely amazing to me the number of people claiming "independent, self-motivated worker" and who have never asked a question on clpm.

I have never asked a question on clpm, because I have never needed to. (I don't even read clpm, because the noise level is so high.) I've always been able to solve my problems on my own. If I need to, I can read and understand the source code for perl, and figure things out that way. Your selection procedure appears to screen out people like me in favor of less competent programmers. You might want to rethink that.

If all your community involvement is under a pseudonym, make sure to put your pseudonym on your resume!

Fair enough. But how many people like me are there who don't post to PerlMonks either?
