wrong time to be an engineer in the UK

Do I even need an interview? I'm well qualified and indeed well experienced. I can drink plenty of tea and talk the toot too.

All of the above is sadly all too believable.

I applied for 40 jobs back in the Spring last year - I have a CV filled with nigh on 30 years hands on IT development and support experience - all succinctly summarised into a 2 page CV.

Every time I filled in an online application I had to effectively redraft my CV to fit the criteria for the job.

The job I did eventually land lasted 2 months (one of those was me working my notice!) - the role was not what advertised and the Management were worse than useless.

have now given up trying and seeking enjoyment elsewhere

 

Is the price for that bit in Yen or £?

the kids are effectively destroying it all......by swamping the client with hundreds of CVs...which may or may not be of persons able to do the job

I also fee that clients have brought it on themselves by getting rid of HR/Personnel

but the thing that pisses me off more than anything else is the communication during and after......

they ring you up with a job that you're 'perfect for'....they get you to say yes and then you never hear a friggin thing.........and when you ring them to inquire they haven't got a bloody clue who you are.........

The worst of it was that he was the weediest 27yr old you could even want to meet, he even looked wet behind the ears and later we found he was living at home with his Mum!

Last time I checked, the boats run on diesel, rather than hot air.

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!
