So, last week i finalized the conditions for a new contract but as of yet i haven’t seen an actual contract yet. I’m a bit worrying now if i’m ever gonna see a new contract or that this is just another company that is fully bullshitting me. Although, if they are they why go through the effort they already took?1
Hooray! After being in contact with countless companies I’ve got a joboffer last week! Too bad it pays even less then my last job but hey, jobless people can’t complain right?1
Calling with recruiters... yes hello? Can we postpone this call until 13:30? Im about to lunch now. Ok great. Another recruiter: can we call at 14:00? Great. First recruiter: im delayed im calling around 13:45. Still no call at 13:50; yes maybe we should postpone till 14:30 because i have another call at 14:00 again. Aaaargh!!!!1
i get that you are doing your job by making phone calls. However you don’t need to call me EVERY FUCKING DAY.
Especially if you have nothing new to say. Also FOUR FUCKING TIMES IN ONE DAY. It’s just too much.
Ofcourse i want to land that perfect job that you have for me, but calling just to call is just fucking annoying.
Also, give me a heads up instead of calling for an hour intake call completely out of the blue.
I have multiple job interviews, maybe you are a bit too eager for your end of the month/year bonus.
Just had another jobinterview. I told them i’m not experienced in framework i don’t have any Vue experience so far... They want me to come over for a test in Vue...5
Must have at least 3 years of working experience in a high level company. Only worked for A+ clients and ultra high traffic websites.
Also nice would be UX/UI, Design Systems, Wireframing.
Experienced in sales and cleaning floors. Getting coffee putting music on etc
Salary indication: €18009
Rejection #countless just got in. I just just profile myself as the technical wonder before i ever get hired again.
Aaaand yet another assignment that’s probably too technical for my monkey brains. I’ll just apply at the postoffice2
I sended them the standard; i have this and this experience and looking for such and such.
I got a call. Yay, almost a week after the application but i cannot complain can i?
During the call the person of this company was very hesitant. He wasnt looking for someone right now. Wanted to take his time and wanted more of a medior developer. (Tnx buddy for underestimating me already)
Yeah if i can send over some code before we talk further. Sure i’ll send over my GitHub but if you are this hesitant already i know enough and i don’t want to work at your company because you clearly don’t want to hire me.
What the actual freaking fuck?!?! First this company postponed my jobinterview with a week. Ok shit is busy that can happen. No problem.
I was just about to leave my home when i got a call from them.
“I didn’t know if the interview was remote or not so blabla. Last week we talked to a company and are gonna outsource our development. Therefor we won’t hire any developer right now. But maybe in six months”
WTF?! Are you fucking kidding me? Goddamn asshole, this is ridiculous.
I should’ve just hang up right there. If you run your business like this and threat people this way, i don’t even want to work at your company. Motherfucker1
“Although we had a click during our talks, another candidate fits the profile we’re looking for better.”
MOTHERFUCKER THIS IS REJECTION NUMBER 57 FOR ME. BETTER GIVE ME A GOOD FUCKING REASON THEN THE STANDARD PROFILE EXCUSE YOU FUCKING IMBECILE OF A GODDAMN FUCKING ASSHOLE!!!
Disclaimer: i’m truly sorry for my language but i’m going through a though time. I’m gonna go and cry in a corner now and continue being jobless for probably another three months.3
Aaaaand another rejection. Without a reason. And only after i asked about the status. I guess if i didnt ask, i wasnt told in the first place. Bastards. Meanwhile i’m kinda broke now. There goes my savings!4
If you are looking for a frontender but your website is totally buggy on mobile, that doesn’t make a great impression. (On anyone really)
If i then see that you have someone walking around in a senior manager position who just came fresh out of school 3 years ago i’m just laughing my ass off.
Hell no i’m not gonna work for that scale-up!8
So 10 phonecalls en 6 emails later i’m pretty much done with jobhunting for today i think. Omg, what an insane day this was!3
I took a list on my job applications the other day. So far i’ve contacted 35 companies this year!
You can say about this covid crisis what you want but you can’t deny i’m pro-active. More talks tomorrow ánd friday. #wishmeluck
Got feedback after job interview #33:
Yeah we don’t think you have enough corporate experience...
YOU COULD HAVE READ THAT IN MY RESUME BITCH! STILL YOU SPEND MY FUCKING TIME AND GAS!3
I had a jobinterview this morning at a small startup, that doesn’t even have clients yet. That sounds too risky to be in right now3
Me VS Dentist:
Me: Hey Doc, it hearts on the left side of my jaw, can you take a look at it maybe?
Dentist: Awh that’s nothing. If you just keep it clean there is no problem. Let’s make a picture just to be sure.
Also Dentist: i can’t see it with my bare eyes but the picture indicates an upcoming problem on the right side. I HAVE TO REPAIR THIS!
No fucking complaints there but still.
This reminds me of IT people and car mechanics. They can tell you anything to earn cash from you.3
Longest/shortest job interview you ever had?
My shortest was under 10m, i came in for the wrong function via a recruiter.
My longest is 135m the guy just kept on talking and talking and talking and....10
Hey Bad-practice, i see you’re looking for a new job? Are you interested in working in the main capital only 60km away?
Yeah sure, here are my contact details.
Ok great! Expect an invitation for somewhere next week.
Two days later i receive an email from their HR manager, who wasn’t even able to spell their own company name correctly... Asking again my phone number that i already gave to the first contact.
Impression so far? Very mediocore.3
Hi bad-practice, thank you for your application but unfortunately we had to conclude there is no opportunity for the role you are looking for.
They had a vacancy for frontend developer. I am frontend developer. What you mean no role?
Smells like the 33th BULLSHIT EXCUSE!3
Some companies: asking for a developer, must have 5 years of experience. Must know C#, php and Python. Also expert in html css react angular and vue. Salary: scrubs. Haha good look looking for the ultimate developer senior for €1800 a month :’)1
Im browsing to webdeveloper vacancies all day today. Appearently every company thinks they are working with or on state-of-the-art technology. This term is raped and abused for sure!2
Angular test for a company: they are asking me to implement a filter on a table using rxjs. Me, no real rxjs experience, set up complete new page, new table with angular material and a working filter. Lol, ductape solution successful!3
Updated an online profile on a jobsite this morning for a frontend job. Got called this afternoon:
Recruiter: “i have this great frontend opportunity for you. Are you interested and can i mail the vacancy over?”
Me: “yes i’m looking for something so mail it and i’ll get back at you”
A few moments later...
Recruiter mailed a backend function
This is why people don’t like to work with recruiters.3
Hooray, i got laid off! Time for something fresh and new. All jokes aside: this happens every 2 years. I need help.3
Me and my gf are looking for a house. Since we’re both on temporary contract we want a declaration of intent. For arranging a decent mortgage. My gf get’s called and signed within a day, getting compliments and a thumbs up.
I get called after three days; yeah eh we need to talk about this. I can’t sign this right now. A talk with both director and HR. Let’s get stressed...14
So I’m the frontend developer in this company. I am the one with 10 years of experience when it comes to html, css and js.
How can it be then that I’m not invited to frontend meetings?
I checked the meetings colleages have and came across a excel sheet. My name is mentioned about 10 times in this sheet. Which was what the meeting was about. However I am not a part of this? Wtf?2
