I've been going through a lot of resumes lately and I want to offer simple advice to anybody seeking a Perl job: try to appear in a google search for "Your Name perl" . Sorry if that's obvious, but it's the first thing I do when I get a resume.
It's absolutely amazing to me the number of people claiming "independent, self-motivated worker" and who have never asked a question on clpm. If all your community involvement is under a pseudonym, make sure to put your pseudonym on your resume!
I know this is a tough job market now. Any other advice for people seeking Perl jobs?
