I was looking on seek this morning and found a local part time position been advertised. So when I clicked on the link firefox told me this :

 

Your connection is not secure

 

The owner of xxx has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

 

 

 

I have replaced the website address with xxx.

Maybe post the certificate details with the host domain removed. TLS version is of interest.

Reminds me of an IT job I applied for in the past with a large, creditable company who asked for my LaTeX written CV which was in .pdf format to be sent in .doc format.

 

Right, first I didn't even use Word to write my CV and when I tried explaining this to them they glazed over. My answer was after that "no thanks..."

I don't think it's unreasonable to request a CV to be presented in a widely used file format. 

 

Personally I'd never heard of LaTex and if I was employing I wouldn't acquire new software to read one CV.

 

Surely LaTex can output (via a PDF printing utility if required) to PDF format?

No, I did state it was in PDF. It was readable by all devices.

The 'processing system' is normally manual entry or copy and paste into a database by clerical staff.

 

PDF can be converted to word and vice versa very easily and effectively too.

Sorry, my mistake ...  I misread.  PDF should be good enough.  They can always convert to word if they need to.

I'm learning more and more to judge a company by their hiring systems & processes. Having things like online application forms, cloud based HR systems, apply with linkedin buttons, file format agnosticism, automated interview scheduling, progress tracking etc are all great when used right, and can leave a great first impression.

 

Companies that ask for a .doc or can't even accept a PDF generated from LaTeX - I'd seriously consider avoiding because you'll end up miserable when you're stuck there with visionless, inefficient and utterly behind the times technology & staff.
