Check out the latest entries to the FCW Twitter contest

The entries are piling up for the FCW Twitter contest.

As explained in an earlier post, the challenge is to rewrite your job description as a “tweet” -- that is, with no more than 140 characters (including spaces). The added challenge, for those up to the task, is to be both concise and funny.

To read the full list, and to submit your own, click here.

Meanwhile, here are some of our recent entries:

I try to put the GO in EGOV without the EGO

Federal Sales Diva: Keen ability to hunt small and big game and tee up targets for results.

County Comptroller: Financial umpire, balls and strikes same for everyone. Info on $ now, wow.

HR guru finds Ur ills & cures ‘em. Pay me now or courts later. I’ll engage Ur emplyez B4 they disengage U. Wrk 2 Keep ‘em pay 2 replace ‘em

Network Eng: Construct fundamental communications infrastructure using advanced Ethernet protocols and complex wiring. I plug the cables in.

Take notes; tell the truth; duck.

Write memos, go to meetings, write memos about the meetings, hold meetings about the memos ... e.g. work for government.

And note these two poetic entries:

Operations Specialist am I/Most likely til I retire or die/I do what boss tells me/Make maps pull data goto cafe/Saving citizen money I try

Seeking, networking, & hunting.
In the hope I won’t be punting.
I reinvent, advertise, email, and personal brand,
All for that new job to land.
