    On there, but initially never made an effort to make my profile look like somebody worth looking at. Then i got ADOBE Accredited and suddenly got interest from a few agencies, but I'm only hoping to be working for another 4-5 years and may as well see that out here, so should probably delete the profile, but CBA...

    Been on it for a fair while.

    Always make me laugh the bullshitting and one-up-person-ship that goes on, a race to be the smuggest, most patronising git on a thread.

    Worth it for the piss taking out of colleagues 'liking' stuff to score points.

    Plus even so-called proper companies find it hard to resist souped-up job titles (I'm not talking about the poor security bods at the airport with 'Airport Ambassador' plastered up the back of their tabard) when you can have a 'VP of HR' FFS.

    I found out an ex colleague was a 'director' a few jobs on. This used to mean something too, now it can be for feck all other than directing yourself.

You might be able to glean he's an idiot because some of the self-penned praise on there is littered with the spelling of a 10 year old - an easy way to spot the right spackers.

    So. I'm out. If these places won't do anything to police the horseshit on there it just becomes a free for all of nonsense.
    At least give me credit for trying.



















    I signed up years ago after a friend sent me a request. I got bored with it in short order. Occasionally I still get an email - they've been relegated to the spam folder.
