…and the award goes to the many recruiters that approached me for positions but didn’t send the job description, because…the job description is confidential.
Let me make it clear.
CONFIDENTIAL. JOB. DESCRIPTION.
The “conversation” went like this:
Me: Can you please send me a job description?
Recruiter: No, the job description is confidential. I want to speak to you over the phone.
Well, guess what? I’m not in the mood of wasting time scheduling and having a phone call, if I can say “I’m interested/I’m not interested” in roughly 30 seconds with a written job description in front of me.
Also: if the job description is confidential, you can’t exactly say much over the phone either…so, really, what’s the point?
I understand that lack of socialization is an issue during Covid 19 pandemic and its quarantine, but, hell, programmers are busy to produce code by the kloc, not waste time in pointless conversations.
