This is in continuation of Topic: Volunteer Java in GTA Toronto - Part Time posted in Jobs Offered section

Here is a little story.

Once upon a time, there appeared an advertisement titled �WANTED� in a local newspaper in Toronto. Looking at the advertisment, an immigrant was very much excited. He sent his CANADIAN style formatted resume and was invited for an interview by the CANADIAN company. On the day of the interview immigrant dressed up in CANADIAN style, he did rehearsal how to answer both hard skills and soft skill questions in CANADIAN style. The interview went well, immigrant was thinking that he has answered almost 100% of the question in a CANADIAN style and he was looking at the interview panel for there response.
Finally, the leader of the panel started saying
�Today we have rejected more than 7 candidates, because we do not want to put our project in a danger. We feel that you are somewhat fit for this position, but there are some conditions I want to declare before I offer you this position. We can not pay you ANYTHING but of course you will get very valuable CANADIAN experience after working on this position�

Immigrant thought for a moment and said � OK, thank you very much, I will take this position. Can you please tell me what will be my responsibilities?�

Leader of the panel replied, � Good question! We know a very busy street in Toronto, we will tell you the address only after you sign NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT because this is a business secret. You have to go to this street 7 days a week and ask visitors for change. Dimes, nickels, quarters, loonies and toonies are fine. As per our policy, we don't accept pennies. At the end of the day give us all of the collected money. But hey, you can not take any thing out of the collected money because this is our money and you are getting CANADIAN work experience�

Shame on you so called Canadian companies.

Judy, I know how you feel about the thread in question, and I've expressed my sentiments there as well: However, this isn't the appropriate forum to raise the issue. That would be the JavaRanch forum, where I've moved this post.

I AM MIGHTY! Especially when I hold this tiny ad:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
