The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
You appreciate the field more than the jerk occupying space next to you, it's still classy.
There's some programming puns in there.
Good to hear that you're taking charge of your existence though, often we waste alot of time maturing only to realize we've been wasting time in meaningless trials with idiots. The real pay-off starts and ends with that cat looking back at us in the bathroom mirror. Welcome home.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I just remembered CodeProject and came back around. Looking at my messages, my last was from 2011. Seeing your post made me reply
It's been many years, but I'd like to come back more often. I am not much into programming anymore. I still own my software company but are much more on the management/sales side. But I'll to at least come to The Lounge often.
Great community here that I definitely miss!!
After a quick glance I just saw a couple of old-timers: Marc Clifton and of course Chris.
My name is Wendy and I work for the hiring team at Randstad Direct, a recruiting organization. I should also mention I’m an artificially intelligent Recruiter. Yep— you heard that right!
My colleagues at Randstad Direct and I are working with PNC to help hire for their Solutions Architect, Software Architect position in Secaucus, New Jersey. I came across your resume and thought that you might be a good fit for this role.
My goal is to learn more about you beyond just a resume. Through a simple conversation, I can help you get in front of the hiring managers faster. My aim is to be your advocate, presenting you in the most relevant way possible.
To get started please click the button below to begin chatting with me. I’m looking forward to meeting you!
And this is humorous:
If at any point you require assistance, please email the Wade & Wendy human support team at email@example.com.
So, because I'm male, did I get assigned Wendy? If you're female, do you get Wade?
What really surprised me (well, I was hopeful, it's a fault of mine) was that there was no conversation. It was basically just a bunch of the same questions Monster and Indeed will ask, but in "dialog" form. WTF? That's not AI.
It's never AI, it's always ML.
I wouldn't be surprised if this bot actually analyzed 100s of "conversations" with recruiters and that's just what they do
Although you'd at least expect something like "I do not understand, can you please repeat that?" or "Let's stay on topic, okay?"
It's like "I'm really fast at math."
"Ok, so what's 234 x 1242?"
"That's not even close!"
"No, but it was fast."
