It is a shame he deleted one of his posts between 9.10-9.18hrs, it read 'Only geniuses get Masters, and a lot of people are jealous of those who have them'.

Still I admire his spirit in the face of 100% impossibility (I was going to say adversity, that that's just not strong enough a word).

Certification overkill. You're 23 and have taken this many certs? Anyone with any real technical experience in IT would laugh at this list. It is impossible you have any meaningful hands on experience in even one or two of the areas you posted about. That doesn't even take into consideration the 5-6 years devoted to your "Masters". Why do you list both CCNP and CCNA? Anyone that knows anything about either knows the CCNP requires CCNA as a pre-req. Did you list primary school graduation on your resume also?

I love interviewing people like you :D

Many years ago I did interview one like this ..

When I prompted him if he knows a product x, he was like "i know" and then when I asked him if I can send him onsite, unsupervised, he was like "sure, I can always try ... just give me an hour with the INCG" and followed by a rant that nobody is born experienced and I am depriving him of his experience if I don't give him a chance to try ... etc. etc.. followed by a threat that our company will go bust if we don't employ people like him ..

I rejected him, though our CEO was very impressed and demanded he be employed under me .. I refused, as I had contracts where I needed engineers to be placed ASAP, and expected faster turnaround, not after training .. Especially when the guy had problem differentiating a cross cable and a straight cable insisting that he is not a cabling guy .. and "it's not my job to take care of cabling . "

And then there was another, who claimed he knew everything, also around 24 years, and enough certificates. He was placed under my contract.

I sent him onsite, and it only took a day for the customer to send him back. Upon further enquiry the customer said they are not comfortable with a guy who starts reading the manual, from Page 1, before even being able to sit on the console



PS: the irony is, the above two guys are today earning twice or more than my pay, in other companies .. and they insist they just needed somebody to believe in them .. lucky guys eh ????

Oh no doubt. I wouldn't want to work for me. But for the area I work in, there is zero tolerance for BS artists.

And unfortunately, no, HR doesn't allow those. But if we did, the OP would be the equivalent of the guy who bought one of every 'enlargement kit' ever spammed to his hotmail account, and is now walking around telling everyone he is Peter North.

Blimey - so that rules out advertising, teaching, banking, something to do with religion, IT, something related to art, taxi driving, working in any electronics store in Singapore.....
