    A month from retirement?

    It may only be for a month but you could retire after that.

    Revenge of the HR department...

    This is almost as good as the ad I saw in Hong Kong, three years ago, for an Java programmer - HK$ 25,000 (approx. 1600 quid) per month; must have 10 years Java experience.

    There was me thinking a couple of hours a week would do me. So I clicked through, and the rate has gone down to £20-25 per hour.

    Comrades, this is no accident !

    I see this all the time. Recruitment 'consultants' seem incapable of a)distinguishing between contract and perm posts, and b) filling in the details boxes on their automated submission forms properly.

    Mind you, they aren't renowned for their intelligence, I can remember back in the good old days (when Computer weekly was about the size of an Argos catalogue) seeing a rash of job ads requiring candidates to have three years of Java development. This was in early 1996. (Java was released in May 23 of 1995)

    But hey, I sense I'm about to get on to a rant about the endemic incompetence in the IT recruitment industry and it's negative effects on the industry proper (like manufacturing a 'skills crisis' where none exists), so EOF

    Shame they have fixed the advert, I figured if I got the job I could have managed at least a half a day before they clicked on to the fact I can't do it! Well it is for the DWP!
