Application Forms

There’s a certain monotony about application forms. I’m currently on the fourth of the day (LogicaCMG) after completing 3 yesterday, bringing the final total to…. 15! You will not believe the number of times I’ve repeated myself, or how a very slight change in the question can lead to a completely different answer.

However, i’ve now got it down to a number of set answers and examples and I just want it out of the way. I’ve got a telephone interview tomorrow with HP so I need to prepare for that (and get up, gotta set the alarm and be awake).

Grumble grumble… rant over.

    Do not, what ever you do, take the LogicaCMG job!!! Repeat do not take the LogicaCMG job what ever you do. Probably the worst IT firm of the major set.

    Also if you are interested in Agile you will walk in to LogicaCMG and be told to follow Cortex, and guess what the most developed and used method in Cortex is? Waterfall!!!! Yes Waterfall remains the most used methods at Logica, sometimes they call it Rapid but its always Waterfall.
