I'm not making this up. Here's the actual text for this job at Guild Insurance, Acerta, and Guild Trustee
"Harry Potter and the Graduate Developer role"
"Are you still reading this section? I’m impressed. Actually, prove you read it all by including something in your application somewhere…Let’s see…How about you add a section to your application where you explain which fictional character you would be and why?"
So what is it we want you to do? You’ll pretty much be an end to end Developer, doing all sorts of interesting and varied things. That’s kind of cool because it gives you a chance to find the part of development you really like. Everyone has that part of development that they could do for hours and never get bored of, and finding your ‘Holy rogue semicolon, Batman! This is the best!’ means trying lots of stuff. Well, believe me; we have stuff by the bucket load for you to try...
Let’s not kid ourselves, the number one reason for you is either delicious cash dollars or so you can get your relatives off your back with their ‘when are you going to put that degree to use’. But, once you have the whole ‘money to live on’ thing down and can afford to fund your smashed avo addiction, you’ll find the next best reason is simply for the experience."
I've got to wonder: why do insurance companies hire such idiots. Does anyone even review these job adverts before they go out the door?
It must be nice to take people's insurance premiums, and create position appealing to children only.
