"Junior" Role

Posted on Tue, Oct 13, 2009 at 4:43 AM

I wonder what comes before "junior" or "entry level" when "2 or more years experience... and a University degree or 3 or more years experience" are required to apply for the role.

This reads to me like, "we want experienced professionals but we'll pay only BOTTOM dollar. SOMEBODY will work this cheap in a shitty economy HA HA HA."

There's really no humour in this approach. I see this all the time in the IT sector and it sure burns my ass. You take a $40k education (or more) plus 2 years working experience (or more) and one should expect to earn less than what a part-time bar tender makes. WTF is up with that?

I think the IT sector needs a UNION!!!!! An international one. And NOW.
