iPads improve image of IT industry
Gawd help us all
The IT industry is seen as a more desirable place to work, thanks to the likes of Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg and fondleslabs like the iPad.
Actually it's not quite so clear cut - 46 per cent of respondents to a recent survey believe the IT industry is seen as more attractive now than five years ago.
Some 40 per cent credit iPads with helping this change.
Personalities also help attract would-be geeks to the industry. The top five are:
1. Steve Jobs, Apple supremo
2. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO... bitch at Facebook
3. Michael Dell, boss of Dell
4. Steve Ballmer, Microsoft's Uncle Fester
Fifth place goes to Google co-founder Larry Page.
The numbers come from 5,500 responses to CWJobs User Profile Survey.
Respondents also listed brands in order of importance in making technology a desirable field to work in.
Top spot went to Google, then Apple with Microsoft in third place.
In terms of the technology which is drawing people to the trade, mobile development platforms were considered most important by 58 per cent of people. Forty-seven per cent mentioned social media, 34 per cent said cloud computing and 32 per cent cited 3D and animation. ®
Poor deluded bastards
If only they knew.........
Just because the end product is shiny shiny and the bosses earn shitloads of wonga doesn't mean working for them is a good thing.
Diamonds are nice and shiny too, but I wouldn't want to work down a mine in Botswana.
So what this survey actually says is....
...Joe Public think we spend all day staring at company issue iPads and engaging in various types of social media. Boy, are they in for a shock!
When the reality is....
A shitty recycled Dell Latitude, Microsoft Fucking Word, Visual Pissing Studio, and MS sodding DN.
Another generation of gadget fanbois thinking they can get rich quick.
Social networks? important?
Screw it, we are all doomed!
