Nanos542016dObviously where I've been going wrong all these years..
You'd think nuclear reactor designer would get you some traction in the job market these days..
Well, its just a hobby really.
Those things are sure expensive, and difficult to get shipped to your home address !
Mutator18916dyou're right, and the always nagging mailman with the 5 stories high package at the door is more than just annoying
karma905811dI applied for an mobile app dev position... Never buit an app before, and I'm still going. Close to first release now 😁
Ah, so the secret to getting a job is to ask beforehand, will there be any tests ?
Actually that reminds me of a place I worked, where reading and writing was very important, but they didn't have a test for that, only a tick box on the application form "Can you read/write ?"
After spotting a new member of staff apparently a bit lost, I quickly discovered they couldn't read anything.
They was telling me how they got someone else to fill in the application form.
At a management meeting I brought up this issue and when they asked how did I know they lied on their application form, I replied that they told me !
After that, they did have a small written test.
I'm also reminded of a driving related job, where at first, they did no tests at all and just gave you the vehicles keys to drive !
Then they introduced a test (After I complained..) where you had to drive forward a bit, and back a bit in a straight line..
Not really the kind of test I had in mind..
I didn't have a driving license so my first day, I found out that yes, you could go 40mph backwards..
