Search - "excited"
My college organised some interview with a company, with the whole demn class. We went there, it was quite far away (50km) and the CEO invites us to a meeting room.
Where he bores me for 2 hours talking about their projects in argiculture and NSA like spying systems at tankstations.
They were caputuring license plates at gas stations and with that information gather data about the person, such as salary (by looking at their car), house adres ect. All without people knowing. And than targeting them with specific ads and offers.
The class of sheep were super excited but it pissed me off. Because he told it like it was some awesome advancement in technology that none of us could probably ever do.
He was demeaning us, saying we would do some simple wordpress sites there and other things. We are probably not good enough forc te big stuff.
Asking him some really hard questions about his projects made him so pissed he almost wanted to kick me out.
When it was finally over, there was some test that you have to do if you want to work there. If you were good enough at the test, you could!!!! (YEEY)
Uhm, I said; no thank you I dont want to work here.
Later I talked to my classmate and friend who always thinks he's better then everyone in class even tho he barely understands OOP programming. He was asking me if he should try to get the internship. I told him; dont. They have no value for us and they think they are the greatest company on the planet.
The fucking idiot go so pissed, he stopped talking to me alltogether and blocked me everywere. I AM NOT EVEN JOKING. Just because I gave my FUCKING opinon about a company he likes for no reason.
So this idiot does the test (which was fucking simple btw, I did it too and compared the results and I had 95%) He gets invited for another interview and gets told he will be paid 200 euro's per month 😂. and a free meal everyday!! 😪 hahaha . That doesnt even cover commuting costs!
My "friend" told him that the train costs more every day. You know what the CEO said? "Yeah but you can learn so much here the also brings value and you're just a last year student. But I think you are really brave for asking more"
So in the end, he couldnt take the internship and I was fucking right. Really I hate these kinds of companies thinking they are heaven on earth when they are clearly not.
I am happy I told them no before putting my dignity on thd line.14
oh to be a new cs student and to be excited about programming and coming up with solutions... i feel quite nostalgic about it, that sense of wonder4
Honestly so fucking excited, been going through the application process to start a (UK) level 4 apprenticeship and I am through to the last round! Got my last interview with the programming team in January when I'll know if I got it or not.2
Imagine the exact same deficient, built-by-comitee, poorly maintained, dependency hell, web-based garbage software that runs the world right now, but descentralized, green, and on-steroids.
Our efforts are positively intelligence-negative, and entirely profit and fad driven. We will stop at nothing to cash in on trends in our sneaky pursuit of making bank by staying current and inclusive, empowering creators to bring about the inherent mediocrity that our vanity fueled society has come to expect in their everyday consumption of worthlessness.
We're so incredibly excited to continue our mission, while remaining as petty, pretentious and self-important as ever. We will not contribute anything remotely positive to the decaying collective minds of the world, but rather, make a conscious choice at keeping up with the make-pretend game of idiocy ever-present in our timeframe.
Our top of the heap, creme de la creme, extra-deluxe gourmet over-engineered state of the arts super mega giga tera vice president VIP twenty years of tech debt line of products rely on only the most infrared of gamma stacks. We make the objectively awful technology on which you'll be forced to depend tomorrow, TODAY.
Also seven hours of daily and compulsory anal intrusion due to company policy, now sign the fucking contract.
Anybody else have trouble with getting stuck on very little things? Keeps happening to me in class and sometimes gets to me. I'll be able to finish most of my work in quick time and all is good (I get excited that everything runs so I'll write with some speed), but then some very very little bug is there and I get stuck on it for a very long time and I just feel bad about myself. I guess this does happen, what do you guys do to blow off some steam? I know I should just take my time since I'm still a beginner and I'll try to work on that.11
So, Our company called us back to office after 8 month.. and reason was our boss is giving.. You guys may be work on bed.. It is bad for your back.. Here we will provide you better working enviornment and please do carry your laptop to office :P
But I think its okay to work from office.. Once I was excited to work from home. But dude you can learn from the person sitting next to you, discuss things around,, can see what others are doing.. Its a progress. At home you are just u and laptop :)
Personally I think its better to work under someone superior obvious he/she should be technical and egoless.. then its more fun.3
