I wanted to apply for the job at Mozilla. I found the "Firefox Platform
), which looks very
interesting for me.
I've updated my CV, wrote short cover letter and happily clicked "Apply
for this job" button. This moved me to hire.jobvite.com
website, where I
was supposed to upload my resume, provide some personal data, write
something witty about why they should hire me. I've done this and
Next they wanted to check my skills. There were links to two tasks at
. When I clicked "Apply now" on one of them, it asked me to
register first an log in. So I did (it asked me only for my name and
e-mail). I clicked "Apply now" again. Now it wants to verify my identity
with a Linkedin account.
__WHY THE F$&K SHOULD I HAVE A F%^KING LINKEDIN ACCOUNT???__
How does it prove anyone's identity? And what's more important: Why do
you Mozilla want me to have an accounts on two other sites if I want to
apply for a job at FOSS and privacy friendly project? It's ridiculous!
I've sent an e-mail to gapjumpers.me
to cancel my account (there's no
other way to do it) and don't ask me to create it again.
I'm still interested in applying for this position, but only if it
doesn't _require_ any third-party accounts.
