...jobs that show a good salary in the advert get the most eyeballs.
The ones where you need 600 qualifications, but don't mention a salary, usually mean they are going to pay bugger all and expect everything.
Fancy a gig in which you must “Tell users all computer are infected”, always “Follow a script no matter what” and “Write down credit card numbers and details most clearly”? There's even bonuses to be had “for you when you get users’ bank and credit card details when fix the windows computer.” If that sounds like you, New …
Because they either have an exact fixed salary, or they want to size you up before offering.
I remember having Magnum Mac offer me minimum wage to be a repair tech "but great salary once you are Apple certified!". I pointed out I was already certified, and did onsite repairs for my last job at a university. So could they tell me the great salary, since I would obviously be straight on it.
Stunned silence, followed by "well, we;re really looking to get someone on the path to being certified..."
I laughed at them, and told them they should at least read a CVs qualifications section before attempting their bullshit. Since they DEMAND it must only be two sides of A4. Sometimes, my dear HR drone, it's longer than that because of actual relevant stuff, not just bumfluff padding.
I don't have a CS degree. I can surface mount solder, own and use an oscilloscope. Guess which one you need to be able to "fix hardware". Which these days probably means "can repack into box, send to owner"
They could get a lot better talent by replacing their HR department. So many time I've seen HR folk reject job applicants because they don't have the exact qualifications.
At one point I was rejected for a job because I only had an associate's degree in CS rather than the bachelor's they wanted. I only had the BS because I left college to become the first non-founder employee of the company that made the product the people that rejected me needed an integration architect for...
If you want a similar job in India ask this company
I managed once to track them down as the source of a lot of the spam "Microsoft" support calls
you can apply here
they did have a page for a fake AV product at http://www.arjunaainternetsecurity.com/
but that seems to have been shut down
Pretty sure this is a fake joke advert.
"If willing and compromise ethics = make money, then you fit in well."
I can't imagine anyone would say this in a real ad, plus the poor english is a bit of a giveaway - and the real scammers only recruit in India anyways....
The problem is that for some tears there have been spam callers doing exactly this in N.Z. When after about 1000 calls the called person gets somewhat irate, then the call and hang up calls start. The only thing common to all of the callers is a distinct sub continental accent.
The advertisers would appear to have shot themselves in both feet.
