Does FogCreek hire technical college grads?

What's up Joel?  Why are you avoiding the question?  It's a simply question at that.  Very simple.  Very Concise.  Concisely stated.  A yes/no answer would suffice.  Tell me Joel, what is the problem here?  Has your education given you a big head?  Do you really think it takes a degree from Yale/Harvard/MIT etc. to make software like yours?  I don't.  I think a technical college graduate could do the work and do a satisfactory job of it.  Just tell me one think, Joel.  Does FogCreek Software hire technical college graduates?

In case you are pathelogically obtuse, NO.


Monday, November 03, 2003

Yes they do.

We're talking about MIT, right?

Is that a chip on your shoulder?

Is this board really a community?

If you go to your neighbor and ask a reasonable question, will he respond to you or ignore you?

It's a marketing tool.

Perhaps you could assist by defining what you mean by technical college. You mentioned the Ivy League as being out of your scope but you did not specify further.

Do you mean schools with 6 mo to 1 yr training programs like Devry, ITT and Coleman College?

Or do you mean places like MIT, CalTech, with a 4 -6 yr program?

Oh, wait, you excluded MIT; I'm not sure why as it's a well known technical college with a good reputation. Make that Stanford.

Blank,

What is YOUR problem????

If your that serious, let me ask you what is your name?  Do you really think you can post a misspelled thread like this and not give your name.

I suggest you don't come back until you can play nicely.

"Do you really think you can post a misspelled thread like this and not give your name"

Actually he/she already did.

I believe you blank.

There are two perfectly spelled posts with the same title further down, which were deleted then reinstated, if you'd prefer to answer those instead.

I'm actually sitting here smiling and thinking how silly this is getting.  I actually have no interest in your name, I was merely reflecting the demanding style in which you "asked" your question.

As for your previous posts (I suspect you may be Quark), I requote a fellow poster:

"FC hires smart people who get things done.
It's been covered several times before already."

Don't you think it's time to move on!

Not so annoyed, just bored
Tuesday, November 04, 2003

Well, no, it isn't time to move on. Joel owes us. We deserve jobs with Fog Creek. All of us here. I really want to work in a place that hires Bella, Stephen Jones and Bored Bystander side by side.

It's insulting to be ignored just because all you know are applications or you couldn't get into a four year college. I mean really.  Brains aren't everything.

argh. Why don't you guys just go to a good university, if you base your entire confidence in life on where you attend school?
