Wacky Industry Jargon

I have been in the job market for a while now and I have talked with numerous recruiters and HR personnel.  Many times their accent to too thick to understand or they pronounce acronyms incorrectly, but I ran into one recruiter email today which made me laugh heartily for a few minutes.


Excellent problem-solving and coding skills

Good understanding of POOP (Principles of Object Oriented Programming) and coding best-practices, e.g. unit testing, reusability, refactoring, etc.

Experience with database development and design, both with RDBMSes and NoSQL solutions

Familiarity with web application architecture and deployment

I didn’t realize that some of what I learned in college was literally “crap”.
