On this, I have to agree with Lamar. Last summer - or was it the year
before? - when I was job-hunting, I saw one corporate "career" page -
maybe Lockheed-Martin? - anyway, they had an idiot flash video of someone
talking about their "featured jobs". And a year or two before, I saw a
corporate web page (not a consulting firm) that WOULD NOT ALLOW YOU onto
the page to fill out an application and offer your resume if you didn't
have flash!!!
