IT Recruitment is F**ked

We get inundated with job specs in our inbox. Each email is filled with buzzwords in order to try and entice us to take the new role. I have not, nor will not, take a job spec filled with buzzwords. I join a company because of a culture. Having recently read Simon Sinek’s book, Start With Why, I really started to see how recruitment in IT is f**ked broken. The book talks about manipulations in modern society.

Can we fully trust online training courses?

NOTICE: This post is not written to pick on any specific person or service. This is only my thoughts from speaking to people in the past few weeks The online training industry seems to be a lucrative thing. I have heard rumours (unconfirmed! ) of authors earning 6 or 7 figure sums from training courses they have made and delivered. While part of me thinks, “I really want a part of that”, the other part of me thinks that I don’t have the level of expertise to do it.
