So I just "finished" a job that was a remarkably ill fit. I took it as a matter of expedience.

Now I'm in a really strange spot. It was full of very sparkly keywords. I'm writing up the resume synopsis block for it and I don't see how, aside from showing that I did have a programming job, it can do anything but market me straight for more miserable opportunities.

I like perl feeds programming as much as the next nerd. But I've been a C++ guy for something distressingly close to 20 years.

The resume block for this job just can't help but shoot me in the foot.
