Re: Skills shortage
There's a serious disconnect between RECRUITERS and potential employees. When online recruitment webshites won't even let me enter my *****ing *telephone* *number*, they demonstrate that they are actively going out of their way to stop people even trying to apply for their jobs.
"Invalid telephone number, please only enter digits and no spaces". I'm sorry, but nobody remembers their telephone number as a random string abcgdiehfidh. Telephone numbers are xxx SPACE xxx HYPHEN xxxx or xxxx SPACE xxxxxx. I'm slightly prepared to remove the punctuative hyphen from my telephone number, but refusing to allow me to enter ****ing SPACES?
This is just as bad as the recruitment webshites that insist on brain-dead punctiative complexity passwords. I'm sorry, but my password (may be) my dog smells of cheese. It is NOT my dog-with-a-zero smells-but-with-an-upper-case-s-and-!-instead-of-an-l-but-which-l, etc. etc fuckit I can't remember. etc. argh!!! For a JOB APPLICATION?????
