Posted July 31, 2018 06:15:30After three years of working in a variety of jobs, including as a sales rep in a hardware manufacturing facility and as a financial adviser in a corporate office, my career is finally starting to come full circle.
My employer is looking for an entry-level developer.
And I have a strong desire to pursue that opportunity, as my dream is to help build and launch a new tech company.
I was hired as an employee by the Boise-based software company Sysop Solutions in February 2018, but the company has since been sold.
My salary is $50,000, which is about $8 per hour.
I work 12-hour days with a few breaks during the day, and can expect to make $100,000 in annual salary.
I plan to work at least part-time, but am looking for a full-time position with no job security.
When I first applied, my interviewer, a woman who is also an IT professional, said that she would not be interested in a developer.
I didn’t believe her.
But I was skeptical.
I had worked for Sysad Solutions in two years, and it was not uncommon for a recruiter to ask for people with previous technical experience.
My question was: If Sysads hiring manager has no experience with a developer, how can she get someone with that experience?
So I began to research the company.
In the fall of 2018, I was contacted by Sysops hiring manager.
She explained that I would be hired for an IT job, which meant that my previous experience in sales and finance would be a major plus.
The company would be looking for developers with experience in “the latest and greatest technologies, and are looking for the most talented people who are able to help grow the company and the company’s technology.”
I was intrigued.
So I went to work.
I learned that I had been hired for a developer position, and that my pay would be based on experience and technical skill.
I asked why they hired me.
She told me that I was a “strong technical talent.”
I was not sure what that meant, so I asked the question again.
She said that I should feel free to ask about the experience, because “it will be important for us to work with you.”
When I interviewed, the interviewer said that the reason I was being offered a developer job was because the company had a software developer.
This was the second time I had heard this claim.
The first time, I asked.
Did the company have a software development team?
When I asked, she said that yes, they had a developer team.
But the reason the company hired me was because it needed a developer for its product.
I went back to the interview and asked the same question, because I thought the same thing.
And the same person told me the same reason, that I needed to feel free and comfortable to ask.
I felt very conflicted about this.
I felt that if I had the same experience as Sysopa’s software development company, then I should be able to find a developer who had the skills to build a product.
It was my understanding that the company was looking for software developers who were “a developer with the latest and most advanced technology.”
But I did not feel comfortable asking the same questions that I did the first time.
What about the code?
What did it look like?
What were the challenges?
How did it work?
The interviewer seemed to have no idea.
I did not realize that the interviewer had lied to me, and I didn, too.
I immediately contacted my HR manager, who was then able to provide a detailed explanation of what happened.
When I heard that my position had been cut, I became furious.
I began asking questions about the interview.
My first question to her was: Did you know that I asked this?
I then started to write up my experiences and experience points to help the company determine if it was an appropriate fit for me.
I also wrote up my own resume, which I used to get my job offer, and which I sent to Sysos.
But when I went through Sysposes hiring process, I discovered that there were no problems with my experience.
After two weeks of being hired for the developer position at Syspas, I found out that my experience was not enough for the job.
After a month, the recruiter said that her company was hiring a new developer.
It did not matter to me that my interview was not at all professional.
I did what I was told, and the new developer was offered a full time job.
That new developer did not have the experience that I do, and was fired.
In a few months, I had another interview, and when I finally got the call that the new job was my, it was at a time when my pay was being
