    I assume it meant "date the degree certificate was signed/issued" rather than date of graduation ceremony, which was some day in July 96 but they wanted a June date!

    Agreed.

    There are good and bad in permie and contract roles. If you go in with a negative mindset it's a good bet you'll not enjoy it, whether it be perm, a lower-paid contract or whatever.

    When one side has the money and the other side does not, there’s usually an imbalance of power. The agent knows this and always sides with the client.
