I'll be having a job interview in another company next week, so I'm googling a bit about the manager who will interview me…. Got some hits in Google… Has a website… Hey cool, it's a WordPress blog… Having a look at his wp-content/plugins directory… OK, he's using a plugin I wrote. Things looking fine so far :)

    ROFL, good work on your part in doing research before you go in for the interview. Not only will you be better prepared, but I think the manager will enjoy the fact that you went out and did the research. Good luck with the interview and hope all goes well.

    That is brilliant.

    Now I need to start writing plugins that people will actually use :D

    Good luck with the interview, and please write up a post about how the interview went, specifically, when you mentioned about your plugin.

    OK guys, I hope I'll have something fun to write after the interview but don't expect something awesome like "How WP got me a new job" :)

    I'm loving this…. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who does this….I thought I was a little obsessive. Stand up and give yourself a high5 for that find. Good Job. Dying to know the reaction you get.
