Apparently someone decided to copy big chunks of my resume and put her name at the top and then go apply for at least one (maybe more) ATG positions. The resume got her a phone screen, but things quickly came to a halt when it became apparent that she didn’t know ATG at all.
It didn’t take long before someone figured out that her resume was actually my resume.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?
It’s hard to fake your way in to “hard” technical fields where either you know your stuff or you don’t and it’s pretty quickly apparent which side you’re on. But the ATG community is so small that it’s doubly silly to try to pass someone’s resume off as your own.
Anyhow, I thought that whole story was pretty crazy so I had to share.
