Sounds like a resume builder! What about: "Are you willing to relocate at your expense? Are you willing to relocate at employers expense? Will you take a lower paying job if it includes benefits? Will you commute more than 30 miles?" etc etc etc. It seems that if evolt is going to code a job center, then we should consider a full blown resume application, complete with job postings, automatic job matching to resumes, etc. No offense to anyone, cause I love the idea, but basically, in this environment feature creep is going to be full-blown and unmanageable. We got way to many smart people on thelist to continue this conversation. Therefore, I suggest it gets moved to thesite where it belongs. At least there, the idea is that everybody participating is actually willing to *code* the tool, and not just talk it into gold-plate high heaven until it's so big nobody wants to tackle it. :) -joshua ----- Original Message ----- From: "Michele Foster" <michele at wordpro.on.ca> Subject: Re: Members' Skills was ......
