Job Search Blues

Reblog via Ben Ramsey

This whole job-search experience has left me quite jaded and cynical. I don’t think I’ll look at my open source contributions the same way again. I’ve never contributed for the sake of putting it on my resume, but I now know for certain that absolutely no one cares about your open source contributions. Managers and engineers will use as much open source as they can to do their work, but they have absolutely no care about who makes it or how it comes to be. It’s all magical, free labor to them.
