I wonder - do these advertised jobs ever get filled? It seems they are all looking for people with a deep knowledge of WF plus a couple of other products, which implies that they want seasoned professionals - just the kind of people who already have steady jobs elsewhere. Then they want them to move all the way across the country - or to a different continent in one recent case - for a short 6-month gig.

Yes, and the pay is usually an insult. It's funny how all these job require you to be on-site - no remote work allowed. That is, until you send the job overseas for $4 per hour. Then you can be as remote as you want.
