I just got this email:


Hello zazou,

I found your CV on Indeed.
We are currently recruiting for a number of roles and I can see from your CV that you have relevant skills that might be suited to one of them - can you give me an idea of what you are looking for?

I've attached a link to a list of our current vacancies, please let me know if any are of interest.

Best Wishes,
Daria

Sorry contracting is so difficult.

On the SAP forums I often see someone posting a specification and requesting that someone supply then with the code. E.g.
https://scn.sap.com/thread/627070
I need help in classical report | SCN (http://scn.sap.com/thread/2014367)
https://scn.sap.com/thread/625608
HI PROVIDE ME TEST DATA | SCN (http://scn.sap.com/thread/3621549)


I thought that's what this thread was about.

Cos sorting through e-mail opening attachments full of irrelevant jobs is so fun...

Half the time they're amazing permie roles, the rest of the time they're miles away or not matching your skillset at all...

My bolding. Top laughs. I mean come on, they got my details from my CV, if they can't even read it and want me to tell them my skills then what is the point!

You are a contractor... It's your job. Not the fun part of it but still part of the job.

There are three angles to running a small business, as we do.
Doing the hands on
running the admin
getting new work


anyone who whinges about this should really consider what they are doing.

There are Syrian refugees out there who would sell their grandmother for my left nut just for the privilege of having some privileges. so stop the whining

If you feel that strongly about them, perhaps you should donate a portion of your income to them?

Don't give a crap after all?

Resume the moaning! :devil
