Internet Security Threat Report 2014

When The Register's own favourite PR person, Doctor Spinola, applied for a job at Dell a few months back, he was somewhat dismayed to discover that the Great Satan of Hardware deemed his 27 years' experience in the industry to be insufficient for their needs. He should consider himself lucky he didn't try Sun -- a couple of tasty looking jobs on their Web site have even more demanding specifications: "PS consultants will have 35 years' practical experience of detailed design and implementation on major Internet projects." Seems pretty tough, but we feel it's unlikely many potential employees will be able to meet the requirement for more -- ahem -- senior staff: "Principal consultants have 515 years' broad IT experience." So if you were born around the same time as William Shakespeare, then it might be worth checking out the ads at http://www.sun.co.uk/ojp/uk81.html and http://www.sun.co.uk/ojp/uk83.html
