Whilst queuing for lunch recently, I couldn’t help but notice an alarming headline leaping out from the front page of The Independent:
Doesn’t sound great if you’re a student, does it? They went on to say that, “some top companies [are] inundated by as many as 150 applications per job”, a scary figure when you think about that as a pile on someone’s desk.
Cut to the chase
If your skills are right, you’re enthusiastic and have a passion for everything ‘online’, then you’ll stand much better odds with us than The Independent might make you think.
All this must be fairly depressing if you’re graduating in the class of 2011. But here’s some good news: we’re hiring.
Equally, if you know anyone looking for a job who you think ticks these boxes, tell them to take a look at our current positions and get in touch.
Its own reward
What’s more, if you think you are the person for our C# ASP.NET role, we’ll give you £100 in Amazon vouchers or an annual TekPub subscription (worth £169) just to come in for an interview with us (subject to a quick online chat with a developer first).
Now that’s something you won’t read about in the papers.
Head to the dotDigital jobs page and see if you’re just the person we’re looking for.
