The company I work for are letting some people go, including me. It’s a cash starved company. So, they aren’t being any kind of generous with the “bye bye” package.
Now that I actually need a job, I am NOT getting an interview every time I send a CV… Actually, I’ve sent a LOT of CVs for the interviews that I got.
And the interviews aren’t going well. Had 2 final interviews so far and they keep delving and digging into very weird questions.
Last time I was doing interviews, they always gave me some homework project and then I was talking about it and as long as it showed that I know all the cool stuff, than I got an offer.
This time, they want the project to be perfect. As a matter of fact, even a really highly develop test automation project (we’re talking about an interview assignment!) - they rejected it because of stylistic issues, like “this test should be in its own file”, “this comment should be inline and not at in the readme”…
It looks like there are less and less SDET / QA Automation jobs, salaries are going down and lots of candidates per each job offering. Don’t know what is your feeling?
Genuinely worried with the level of cash vs. expenses, going down rapidly now that I don’t have an income…
Any discussion appreciated.
Of course, if you know something about any work going around, happy to send my CV - it’s really good!
