    I submitted my resume for a reporter opening on Gannett's Careerbuilder Web site.

    Here are three "relevant" jobs that the search engine recommended for me based me applying for a reporter gig.

    PT Assistant District Manager Rochester, NY 05/15/2009
    Truck Driver Rochester, NY 05/02/2009
    Metromix Digital Sales Executive (must live in Columbus, OH)

    Obviously, you have made a bad career choice with this reporter thing. ;D

    Careerbuilder is trying to steer you in the right direction and gets nothing but scorn.

    I thought this was going to be about Jim Hopkins at the shareholders meeting today, demanding that Dubow address him by name.

    OK, so you base yourself in Columbus, get a truck route that goes back and forth to Rochester, and do your manager's job telecommuting during the truck-stop stopovers. Then you blog every chance you get and probably make 150K a year all told.

    Hey, pal, careerbuilder nailed it. They are looking out for you.

    Did you read some of the comments on Hopkins' blog? At lot of "say my name bitch" references.
