(This on behalf of DH):
At some point, please ACTUALLY TELL ME ABOUT THE JOB! DH is looking for a computer-related job in the military defense field, and most of the projects are classified (or the program is open, but the data is classified). So about one in three job descriptions actually says what the job requires - the other two are full of buzzwords about needing a self-starter who is good with people, and then lists half a dozen computer acronyms they're looking for. They don't say what the job involves, and they don't say which of those programs or programming languages the job REALLY needs and which you just sorta deal with sometimes.
I can understand this in the initial job ad, but he's gone through the whole interview process with two places (both of which decided not to hire him, we're guessing, since he never heard back) - and neither of them ever actually said WHAT he'd be doing or WHERE he'd be doing it. Five minutes away from our house or an hour away on the other side of town? Programming, or just debugging, or hauling boxes that happen to have classified computers in them? How is he supposed to decide whether the job is right for him if they won't tell him what the job is? I assume they'd tell you before you actually signed any paperwork, but still . . . sheesh!
