Job Interviews


#322

FYI the forum - I decided against using one A3 sheet but I’ve managed to do the cover page of my presentation and I’m onto the second slide now. I’m going to do a table of contents and then have another 6 or so slides. I hope to make real progress tonight while watching Hull-Manchester United.


#323

Different product those sliders. Don’t fall into the hole


#324

That’s not a manhole.


#325

You have to make or fashion the machine for it to be a beast… Started that book a while back, must go back to it


#326

You’d know you prowler


#327

Its well worth your time, albeit a bit hippy in places.


#328

No offence, but that doesn’t make any sense. That just indicates an excessive willingness to get the word prowler into a sentence.


#329

I was once asked in an interview would I mind working with people of different nationalities. I said sure but when you think about it we’re all racists. One of the interviewers said “what do you mean!!!” to which I replied ‘do you live in a semi detached house?’ (Yes) ‘…so picture a family of travellers moving in next door to you…’

I was offered the job.


#330

That’s exactly what a prowler would say


#331

@Bandage I saw this beside the vending machine today and thought of you.


#332

While we’re on the topic, a word about recruitment consultants.
And that word would be “cunts”.
If there is a more useless species in this world I am yet to come across them. I realised early on that there was no point in engaging with these muppets and got rid of them all from Linkedin. One of them told me I wouldn’t have the qualifications or experience for the job I have been offered. Do yourself a favour if job hunting, go direct, do not use a recruitment consultant.


#333

Used car salesmen
Estate agents


#334

people working in banks
salesmen
rugby players
IT developers


#335

S&C guys


#336

None of them are species lads. Well they’re all species actually. I’m not sure fitzy thought this one through. That infamous temper.


#337

So here’s my conundrum guys. I’ve been offered the job I want, which is situated in a perfect location. The salary is a good bit less than I was previously on, but I see more long term upside and opportunity to earn big commission from software and cloud application sales along with the traditional hardware sales. Long term I think I will earn a lot more. But it doesn’t start until late Feb and I really don’t want to sit on my arse for three weeks doing nothing.
I have just taken a phone call from another company I interviewed with who have offered me a role with a substantial salary increase, in a location that is about 30 mins additional every day. It’s in traditional print sales which I have been trying to get out of and in a shrinking market where the opportunity to earn commission is a lot harder. It starts immediately.
Both multinational companies with great career advancement opportunities.
What job do I take? I’m leaning towards the first.


#338

Dont be such a cock

Oh woe is me having to take 3 weeks off


#339

For the record, I would like it noted that I am not a “salesman”, I am a Trusted Advisor.


#340

Yeah, but i don’t get paid for that.


#341
