Minor update

I haven't written in here in a long time, mostly because I don't apply for jobs much anymore, so I haven't been annoyed by Taleo to bother caring about updating this blog. However, this blog still has a surprisingly actively life with its comments, and I love reading your comments about your experiences. If you care about this topic, follow the comments. One comment I received today did strike me as worthy of a new post. "By the way, taleo is owned by Oracle who are not using it for their internal recruitment system. This is the proof of how deep a shit is taleo. " I see that's true. The acquisition was finished in April 2012. And I see that they do indeed use a different system than Taleo, though it hasn't been that long since they companies became related to each other. Nevertheless, it's rather funny.
