I think the CA DMV is under attack right now. Been here for a couple of hours and computers keep going up and down. And now they just announced that this is state wide across all DMVs, so going to another one nearby will not help.
Anyone have any incite....?1
Please ++ this rant if you feel a service like 'rate my recruiter' could help promote and present more technologically educated recruiters in this world. Which would ultimately help us devs in our careers.
I'm sure everyone here (who went to college), knows the website 'rate my professor', which I felt was very useful back in college.
Considering that concept, I'm thinking it would be very useful for us devs to have a similar service like 'rate my recruiter'.
I definitely feel that recruiters have indeed ruined potential opportunities for me in the past (i.e. saying i am a client side only dev when my resume clearly shows server side and database architecture).
Please ++ this rant if you feel you would use a service like 'rate my recruiter'.
Recruiter: are you interested in a client side java role?
Me: yes, here is my client side resume please submit me
Recruiter: sorry the hiring manager said they are looking for more of a back-end engineer
Me: you told me it was a client side role, please resubmit me with my back-end geared resume
Recruiter: yes that's correct, it's client side, we'll keep you in mind for the future but you should know there is a difference between mobile devs and web devs
Me: what you just said is not relevant to this conversation. I would be happy to discuss the diff between front-end and back-end, client vs server, etc.
Recruiter: I'm just relaying what the hiring manager is saying to me
Me: your [lack of] ability to relay technical information is quite apparent :/
*lesson learned*: interview recruiters before they start interviewing me
Unbelievable waste of time, how do these people even make a living? FML!16
