Hi All,

As regulars should know, I am looking at the boot from the company I work for. So that has led me to contact Recruitment Agencies and boy what am eye opener that is. The jobs they advertise are not what they say, use mythical technologies and to be honest to them location is vague (the phrase "South West" can be read as Bristol, Cornwall, or Scotland(!) OMG | :OMG: ) They only seem to care if you have buzz words such as SCRUM, ARM toolchain etc.
There seems to be very little in the understanding of what role entails (for instance I have designed ATE equipment, ATE on CV means I get all sorts of using jobs using rather than designing) Sigh | :sigh:
