Arab Jobs!




    Every time I get one of those unsolicited email spam from the Arab world that has a "job" offering, I can't stop my self from laughing hysterically!

    It seems that when it comes to technology in general and IT in particular we have completely missed the buss. I mean we seriously don't get it! Or at least some don't get it. Perhaps that's why they end up in my junk folder. But that's another story for another day.

    What drew my attention is the ridiculous ways they ask for certain things. "10 years of experience", "15 years of experience", "Master's degree or better", this certification or that. Pure junk if you ask me. Since I had the honor to work with some of the world's greatest minds that have "fortunately" dropped from collage to build the next big thing and many have succeeded (many more have failed to be honest)

    But I laugh at the requirements. You want someone with a Master's degree to work as your Monkey? Don't get me wrong, and all due respect to all degrees out there. But Collage degrees don't teach you how to code! I don't care which school you graduate from. They don't teach you how to be a great software developer. This can be generalized to just about anything you see in IT. The degree/certification is great, but means nothing! You MUST be passionate about it!

    Busy! Really really busy!


    I can't remember a period in my life where I've been busier! I swear. Work alone is demanding more than 50% of my wake up time. Let alone family and other social obligations (not the social media type, but the real part)

    Then comes an idiot who calls you 5 times on the night of your most important event and expects you to HELP THEM CHEAT.

    Right...
