What really pisses me off...

I sent my CV off for a few advertised jobs. One was looking for a cad monkey with experience. The money was fine and I certainly had the experience, so the least I was hoping for was an interview.

I got an email back saying I was too experienced. Too experienced?? What the fuck?? I was willing to do the job for the advertised salary. I would not have applied otherwise! How can I be too experienced for the role?

Back in the day when I did the hiring and firing, I had guys with Mechanical degrees who just wanted to draft. They were obviously over qualified for the role advertised, but were happy to do it for the money that was offered. I was delighted to have them as part of my team.

Too experienced.... what a fucking joke.
