I've found another reason, besides the global recession, why I feel discouraged to find a new 'career.'
I've noticed this trend of people becoming their work. Where every part of your life, your online and offline identity revolves around your job. You no longer just work - you're 'living a passion', and 'growing a brand'. It feels like the human being behind the job disappears. As if, in order to be successful, you need to commodify every aspect of your life.
Idk is this relatable in any way?
@Gina 100% relatable.
All these job postings with "Are you this super champion that joins our highly motivated team of experts?". The whole description screams: "Let's work your ass off with us. Burn your life while you have it".
Job asked: Junior Java developer, or something
Pff.. all platitudes created by these recruiters. Highly discouraging too.
There are also more weighed, decent and humane vacancy descriptions. But beware: It is a recruiter trend to craft these, to lure you in.
@humanetech This!! “Do you like complex challenges? Do you live, eat and breathe .NET?”
Nah mate, I don't. And I pity anyone who does.
It was not directly on the radar. Because "job listings" invites a lot of spammers, and "annoying actors" like recruiters.
Our "put the users first" adagium is often perpendicular to "job listings".
But if this can be done in a non-recruiterspammy manner: certainly a really neat feature to take in consideration!
@humanetech Thanks a lot for the reference to cloutstream; will certainly look into that, if only for "lessons learned".
But, indeed, presenting yourself is an important goal for flockingbird.
But fwe want to make the "discover/search those presenting people" more a social function: you present your professional self to your network so that they can help you.
And never so that "random recruiter" can grab a list of "profiles remotely related to this wordpress job I have to fill".
