A number of Cyburbianites seem to be looking for jobs. I propose we help eachother out by writing letters of reference.

Maybe someone could be so kind as to personalize this.


To Whom it May Concern:

I believe "Seabishop" would be an excellent candidate for any position in the planning field. His hard work and dedication to Cyburbia are unparalleled.

One time in this awesome thread, he was talking about how a mouse almost bit his Dad’s privates in the bathtub – that was funny! I snarfled a lot! And sometimes he'll even write about zoning stuff too, and about how he thinks some modern buildings are ugly. He’s very professional, doesn’t flame unnecessarily, and always uses emotocons appropriately. :) I'd hire him for sure.

In summary, I feel that Seabishop would make a welcome addition to any team. Feel free to PM me with any questions about Seabishop’s past performance in the FAC.

Sincerely,
Man-with-the-Plan5000, Cyburbianite since 7/03

Dear ____,

I would like to offer my recommendation of _____ for the position of planner in Your Town. S/he (this person is of indeterminant sex) has shown remarkable dedication in following Cyburbia throughout the day, and frequently posting across a range of threads. S/he drives an American-made automobile and two firearms. S/he can drink most fellow planners under the table. S/he is leaving his/her current position do to the large number of morons in the city's administration, and would excel in a new environment with a completely different set of morons, such as you.

Sincerely,

Cardinal

Sir/Madam:

Please accept this letter as my personal recommendation that you consider employing ________as he/she has a great depth of experience in analysis of land development proposals and writing succinct planning reports. Said planning reports usually contain catchy phrases common to the planning profession that cut through "developer speak" such as "don't piss on by back and tell me its raining".

While ________ was employed with our firm, he/she was always courteous and helpful to the general public by answering their stupid ass land use planning questions. As an added benefit, should any member of your firm require personal protection services, _______ special forces training as a sniper and counter terrorism expert will undoubtedly come in handy during any controversial public meetings you may have to attend.

In closing, ________ is a decent shit who has always willingly fallen on his/her sword for the greater glory of the team. I would therfore not hesitate to recommend _________ for a position with your firm.

Regards,
Chief Cook and Bottle Washer

Furthermore, his/her involvement in cyburbia proves he/she has superior tech skills to most folks. It will be well worth your tolerance in putting up with the misuse of company time and equipment while _____ dicks around on the boards instead of working. You did say you wanted someone interested in networking and professional development, didn't you? What more could you ask? Hire this here cyburbanite. You can't do no better than that.

To whom it may concern:

I offer my recomendation to you about ________. While s/he worked at our office, s/he continuously spilled any breverage on his/her computer and/or Comp. Plans. ______ also laughed like a maniac, making the work enviroment more friendly. Until this day s/he denies being addicted to some internet forum.

S/He is an excellent negotiator, and has accepted only the most succulent bribes offered by developers. S/He has the lovely tendency to not work at all if s/he even dares to show up to the office. His/Her office is like a black hole, we give him/her work and nothing ever comes back.

We strongly encourage you to hire him. Please, do it for us!

Regards,
The town next door.

:-D
