Thinking about investing in Gold. Bit feckin' late I know as it's just hit a 8 year high
Not particularly a fan of Rafa or the Barcodes but this was a good read
And I see many parallels with this jobs postings, my lad is constantly reviewing. They want a 'Junior Python Developer' who has a Masters and more commercial experience of more languages and technologies than I have ever heard of. All for £25k in London.
The old agency keyword matching syndrome. Weird how that industry has remained unchanged for 25 years.
Maybe he should use his AI/ML skills to build an online recruitment agency 🙂
And what is perplexing and irritating is that he never, ever qualifies the question ?
For example, is it:-
1. Help a hostile customer with a SR
2. Leading a 6 month project starting from scratch.
3. Pitching/demo'ing the service to a potential customer.
3. Answering an idiotic question from a manager or customer.
4. Something inbetween.
My boss has started a very irritating habit of repeatedly asking me 'Do you know anything about <random, legacy, niche or other Oracle technology> ?'
This leads me to researching, learning, installing, configuring and running a 'Hello world' program in said technology.
And he never mentions it again until the next 'How's your knowledge of Oracle Petroleum SalesForce Commission Planner' ?
Maybe my P45 is imminent.
'You really are a nasty piece of work, aren't you ?'
Barcodes won't be happy about this news. Rafa is leaving.
Ex-Mertsham manager moves to K's and brings 11 (eleven) players with him. I wonder what Mertsham fans make of that
Known my neighbour for 25 years and consider him a friend. Never borrowed a fiver off me in that time. Until last month, a request for £50 (waiting to get paid on a job'). Fair enough. Repaid me. Week later - £70 - something to do with his son blah blah. Reluctantly lent me the money. He paid me back on Thursday - was supposed to me Monday.
Quiet for 3 weeks. Thought it was over. Last night, he appears asking to borrow £50. I just said 'Sorry but this just has to stop. Now'.
Was I right ?
