I finally went through some of my school things and found my notes from the class where I wrote the final last year and gave myself a reasonably low score. Good times. :lol2:

I imagine it creates time wasting (interviewing only to find the pay too low) :(

Or to have an overly broad pay range

Complete lack of a wage range is annoying, I won't even bother applying if its missing.

An attempt to trick people into poor paying jobs and/or a sign that whomever you've hired to put out the job listing is incompetent and should be fired. Either way not a great way to telegraph that your hiring.

It's a Dickensian party -- as shown by the rampaging disease and rising poverty -- so you know it's going to be winter!

Having managed to stammer two-thirds of his anecdote(which is rather long), he becomes conscious, all of a sudden, that he has completely forgotten the point.

I feel that.

So it looks like my old college (Graduated this year with honors btw) is getting new tech because I just found some of their old community PC's left out for free with all of the perks like Office Suits attached.

Score.

”All Lives Matter” is at best an ignorant dismissal of people who actually care about lives.
At best.

I might make an actual signature one of these days. But for now, and probably for a long time, you’re stuck with this short, simple, modest sig.
Thank you for clicking on the thing, though.
