“A company in Cambridge wants to an enthusiastic and creative person to join their dynamic and friendly software developer team…”. My reply “Dear Sir/Madam,….to conclude I believe that I am an ideal person for the position and I hope to hear from you soon”.
This is all that I have been doing for the past two weeks. Reading BS and writing BS. Why do they want me to explain why I am interested in the job? Is it so hard to understand that a brother needs some money to keep his freezing ass in a room with a heater?
The careers page for one famous company starts with “Can you do what 1000 people can’t do”. LOL. Can it get any insulting than that.
Full of crap. In fact, one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, problem that I faced in my studies here is how they picture things to make themselves look so big. “You will write a research review which will critically evaluate previous research under a topic you choose..”. Course descriptions, evaluation guidelines, the curriculum, are full of this crap. But you pass if you write a not so good paper, which would have been a fail under their description. Ignoring these things and believing in myself to do what I am able to has taken me some time. Now it has recurred in job applications.
