@deprecated_ii @orionstjames Even trade jobs are this bad:
>Apprenticeship that just teaches you how to sell old people and boomers shit they don't need, and a furnace/AC probably shittier than their old one.
>Union trade training program except they're picky about who gets in.
>Experience and trade school needed but we pay you less than a fast food worker and work you till you pass out.
>We train you, never fucking train you, yell that you're not learning fast enough.

@ryo @deprecated_ii @orionstjames 30 years experience with Rust. No, I don't mean the rust on a car.

everybody is in scarcity mode, nobody is thinking long term and it's been like that for decades

it's amazing we've staggered along for this long

@deprecated_ii @PhenomX6 was talking about this with a colleague at work who had experience teaching in higher education

seems to me like CS degrees went from trying to teach solid programming/CS fundamentals to teaching everyone the latest frontend framework to make candidates more marketable. now people who can’t put bullet points and buzzwords on a resume are SOL because they’re not spending every waking second auctioning themselves off to the highest bidder

everyone wants senior programmers, nobody wants to train the senior programmers, nobody wants to pay the senior programmers what they’re worth

I actually replied to such a job post back in 2003 or so.

They requested a Java developer with at least 10 years of experience. Java came out in 1995, so I sent them the list of all people in the world that had had at least some knowledge of Java for that long, like James Gosling, Arthur van Hof, Bill Joy, Ken Arnold and others.
Personally, I only had 7 years experience at that time.

They didn't get back to me.

@niclas @deprecated_ii @orionstjames PR departments and recruiters aren't really knowledgeable.
They just take whatever the CEO says, which takes whatever the latest trends are according to the mainstream media.
