You can't find tech staff – wah, wah, wah. Start with your ridiculous job spec

Lith

I think some of the skills gap problem is that the job spec goes through hr.

After they add a whole bunch of acronyms they heard once while watching Silicon Valley, the number of people with those skills drops to just about zero.

This post is a work of satire and should not be taken seriously

Re: Re:

I voted to remain, but the vox populi have spoken and it's time to get on with it, whether we personally wanted it or not.

Cinema boss gives up making kids turn off phones: 'That's not how they live their life'

On my very first date to the cinema with my wife, on the way in I casually mentioned "if you talk during the film I will walk out you will never see me again".

BT and Virgin sue over £10m state-funded Birmingham broadband

Government money into a private market is substantially flawed? So BT won't want any of that £150 million then?

Kindle touchless wifi only is £89.00 on Amazon with a release date of 12/10/11.
