My department here at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas is 
hiring. We're looking for someone with JAVA and web application skills. 
For a cool, sort of insider's view of the benefits of working here, see my 
co-worker's description of the job here:

(Not of all of what he describes are *official* university benefits. 
Rather, some of them are just what our little development group does that 
makes us fun to work with.)

DO NOT respond directly to me. Go to Texas State's Employment web site 
and follow the instructions there:

Job Title is: Programmer Analyst II (System Project Staff)- Instructional 
Technologies Support
Job number is: 2007405

The official job description is below.

PLEASE NOTE that since we are a state agency, the process can take a 
little longer than applying for a corporate job. Have patience while you 
wait for a response. Also remember to fill out EVERYTHING. Dot all your 
i's and cross all your t's and make sure you've addressed every job 
requirement in some way in the official _application_ and not just your 
cover letter. Upside to this process is you absolutely _will_ get a reply, 
unlike sometimes dropping your application ito the black hole of other 
open job positions.
