Whilst we joke about mention of Perl being off topic for this list, the
implied corollary that anything and everything not Perl is on topic doesn't
actually hold.

Hence, mailing a "help me" to a Perl list where neither your summary of skills,
nor your CV itself, makes any mention of Perl, strikes me (and most of us) as
an inappropriate, inconsiderate* and foolish thing to do.

Sure, your name is now better known. But not for the right reasons.

I hope you have success in finding yourself a job. I wish you no ill in that
regard. But please realise that spamming your CV to any technical group you
can find does not give a positive impression of your competency in skills
that potential employers may well be looking for.
