    Default How many times (if any) have you been "bobbed"

    Twice for me. Once toward the end of good stint at BT and the other 3 weeks into a 6 month "nice earner" at the NHS Much cheapness.....

    Some sectors are wide open to ‘bob’ invasion, others not so prone (currently…)

    I just got info that IBs are looking to expand global internal risk model validation function in Mumbai - this is highly sensitive function giving easy, unlimited access to most sensitive information.

    They seem to spread into highly specialized areas typically reserved for actuaries and PhDs in Maths.

    I bobbed a bob once. Well, kinda.

    Got bought in and worked alongside the bobs. The bob company lost their contract with the client, and client recommended to the bob company's replacement to have words to keep me for my services.

    Only lasted a day though.

    No one is ever irreplaceable.

    Anyway, IMHO it’s a only a matter of time before a major ‘bob’ project results in a huge global security breech just to add the current financial woes.
