i had an interview this morning for a science technician role and when i turned up it turned out the role was actually for a science and dt technician
i have never done dt in my life. before today i had never even stepped into a dt workshop. needless to say i don’t think i’ll be getting the role (but tbh i didn’t think i was going to get it anyway; my background is physics and i haven’t done chem or bio since gcse, and even then we didn’t really do practicals because my school was cheap as fuck.)
anyway i just spoke to the person who recruited me and she asked me how it went.
me: uh ok i just felt really underqualified. when i turned up i found out they wanted a science and dt technician, not just science.
her: oh, what did you think it was for?
me: um… just science.
her: but that’s what it was. it was a science technician role.
me: no it wasn’t.
recruiters are useless.
on the plus side the head of science was a dan stevens clone and there’s nothing i like better than dan stevens and science.
