In the far gone days of my youth, some girls I knew used the acronym â€œGIâ€, for â€œGeographic Impossibilityâ€, when evaluating potential boyfriends. Leaving aside the decades-old question of how often did they discuss boys for them to develop their own vernacular, Iâ€™d like to revive the acronym (assuming it has ever gone out of use) and apply it to jobs.
The problem with searching for jobs on the World Wide Web is that itâ€™s all too easy to do a worldwide job search or find out through other means about jobs that, while interesting, are â€œa bit too GIâ€, as my friends used to say:
- XSLT in new media at the BBC: https://jobs.bbc.co.uk/JobPortal/Search/vacancy.aspx?id=9799
- XSLT at the Numerical Algorithms Group in Oxford: http://www.nag.co.uk/about/softwareeng.asp
- XSLT, XSL-FO, XML, and SGML at Standford: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/sad/194865330.html
The pages at the ends of the URLs may have disappeared by the time you read this, but you get the idea of what would be interesting if it were in Dublin or allowed remote working.
