Going for an interview for a job you don't want


#21

I tried, but it’s not happening.


#22

by the way guys, I’ve realised if you just keep staying at a certain level and apply for things you’re over-qualified for, you always get the job! :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

just gonna spend the rest of my life doing paid internships all around the world


#23

Got offered the job. Is it the definition of privilege to be annoyed when you get a job offer?


#24

Tell em you want 100k smackeroonis per anum or it ain’t flyin pal


#25

Pauper wages?


#26

The problem is that I’m well paid in my current job and this new job is back in academia and nearly a £20k pay cut which I can’t go down to. The job is really attractive and better work/life balance etc, but can’t afford it. I asked If I could be put towards the top of the pay scale because that would reduce it to about a £10k pay cut which would potentially be viable, but they can’t do it.


#27

Take it and just skim money off on the sly.


#28

kin ell mate just put em out of their misery already!


#29

Think it’s time to give your identical twin brother a call. Or if you don’t have one, fire up the ol’ cloning machine.
