Not quite what they had in mind

On a visit to the Cranmer blog this evening, I was confronted with a confusing piece of advertising:[1]

Now what does “Passionate about Ajax?” convey to your mind?

Is it this?

Or even this?

I fear that the IT recruitment company responsible might get some strange replies ….

  1. Yes, I know what Ajax is, in IT terms; I work in the industry. But sometimes you just have to step back.

    And why would anyone be “passionate” about a trick with javascript anyway?

  2. Oh I see, I didn’t realise you were IT industry like myself Roger!

    I don’t know why someone would be “passionate” about such things. I could see that you could be passionate about delivering great interfaces to users with web technologies (for which you’d be using an AJAX library like jQuery) but I guess its to get the keyword in. Most recruiters in my experience are a very expensive keyword-matching service!
