OT: Hot job offer spotted

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by =?iso-8859-1?Q?Frisbee=AE_MCNGP?=, Oct 9, 2003.

  1. You guys think you've seen low-paying ads for MCSE's?

    In the November 2003 issue of Software Development Magazine, which also
    includes their salary survey, is an ad for a programmer as follows:

    DEVELOPER WANTED
    VB Programmers design, development, implementation of software for paper
    industry worldwide, using Visual Basic 6.0, SQLSERVER2000, SQLDATABASE
    (duh), Window2000 (sic), EDI (Propertybag), and PHP. Bachelor Degree in
    CIS. Background in Forestry a plus. Bilingual (English and Chinese) is
    required. 50 hours per week. The prevailing wage for this position is
    $13.22 per hour.

    The line starts at the left. Pack a lunch, it's going to be a long, long
    line.

    I don't know VB. No PHP. No Chinese. No forestry. No BS in CIS (well, a
    little BS...). So, where is my desk?

    Well, after all, Fris, they are required by law to make an *honest effort*
    to recruit local talent before they can hire an H1B.

    Just another example of why the program is so important. How many VB
    programmers make the effort to learn Chinese as well? Lazy, that's all you
    are!

    Furrfu

    *By the way, did they care if it was Mandarin or Cantonese? Both?

    I see a lot of these job adds in Sydney.
    "Bilingual (English and Chinese) is required"

    IE: No Australians need apply.

    look like $1.322/hour is what they want to pay an Indian programmer?
    My company hires an H1 visa Indian, pays him half price. Both are happy:
    employer pays less and the Indian get a job. Now the company is going
    further: outsourcing projects to India, paying master degree guys there
    $500/month. Time for developers here to update the resume.:-(

    Look again, they are looking for a*Chinese* Programmer. I suspect India may
    start losing jobs to China now.
