We talk about Twitter a lot – we’ve featured Twitter’s entry-level jobs, and we’ve found a number of the companies we’ve featured on Twitter. Unfortunately, Twitter’s servers sometimes goes down because it is too popular. A lot of the people I interact with on Twitter are nearly fed up and have decided to give Plurk a try. Plurk is also a micro-blogging service, but they differentiate themselves by advertising that they are a “place that lets you publish your thoughts, emo-ness, #^@%!%(&, and loves.” They also have a different feature set than Twitter, but it’s generally the same idea – you share short messages with your network. I haven’t tried Plurk, because I’ve already invested a lot of time in building my network on Twitter. How would you like to leave Facebook and then refriend everyone on a new site (if they’re even on the new site)? That’s exactly why I haven’t left Twitter for Plurk. By the way, we have a new article about Facebook and resumes dropping this afternoon. It’s by a new writer for us, Rich, who is very funny, so come back later today to read it.

Non-Emos Need Not Apply

We could recount Plurk’s short history for you, but the only way that you’re going to actually understand the company is to try out their service. If you’re an emo in search of a place to micro-blog, give Plurk a try and report back to us about what you think. Actually, you probably don’t need to be emo to use Plurk or to work for them, but hating the world and having ironic buttons on your backpack can only help.

What impressed us most about Plurk was there job titles and descriptions. We can’t get over how easy it is for companies to make their job postings pop by giving the work to someone with actual copywriting talent. Yet few companies invest any time or effort into their job descriptions. How could anyone not want to be a Python/Javascript Ninja Extraordinaire, L33T Systems H@x0R, Optimizer & Log Lord, or Schmoozy Plurkinista/Plurkster & Community Evangelist for Plurk? In fact, you could not read anything more than the job titles, and know if it’s something that you would consider applying for. Oh, right, you’d rather be an “Analyst.” In case you’re a bit confused by the titles (some people don’t speak l33t speak), the first job is in software development, the second one is in IT/systems, and the third is marketing/public relations. You can head over to Plurk’s Jobs page for the full descriptions.

Ok, I’ll fess up. I wrote this entire post without checking to see where Plurk is located. They don’t seem to list a location anywhere on their site (nor do they say much about what it’s like to work for them), so I finally did some searching. Plurk is located in Mississauga, Canada, which is near Toronto. So not only do you have to be emo, but you also have to enjoy hockey and poutine to work at Plurk. If one of these job offerings sounds like a dream come true, and you can learn to be a Blue Jays fan, then send a cover letter and resume to jobs@plurk.com.
