There was once a time when to obtain employment you’d simply pop into the place and ask for a job, Go back later that week for an interview and if successful you’d be employed! Huzzar.
Yet now it’s absolutely stupid the lengths you’ve gotta go to now to get a job. There’s the completely insane qualification needed for some jobs. For one stupid job in retail needs at least 5 years experience! 5 years experience of what? scanning a barcode!
One job I looked at required a minimum of a years experience in retail, That’s a huge amount of the population especially the likes of me a student in college.
Then there is the lack of personal communication in hunting for a job. Every Job seems to be only online and all done through stupid quizzes and tests.
One such job I looked at required me to spend an hour and a half doing a stupid quiz to determine if I’m fit for it. Guess what? I got Rejected because I answered one question, not to their specifications.
How is that fair? they haven’t even met me, let alone get to know me. they think they can just assume and insinuate who I am through a bunch of utter stupid questions about animals and spirits.
Yet even when I apply for a job with just a CV, There’s a chance ill never hear from it again and apparently chasing up isn’t a thing anymore.
Yet if I don’t have a job, I get abuse hurled at me. That I am a spoilt child who will never achieve anything.
How Is it fair to expect someone who barely has free time to jump through hoops and bark like a circus seal for a little bit of money? To be dictated a job by some unfair algorithm?
This was IMO by Jordan Dodds For Journaling Thoughts
I Recently Wrote a small twitter thread about the BBC and CBS have begun to share news content and gathering resources and I wasn’t that sold on the idea. In the thread, I talked about how it could lead to watering down one sides content.
However, there is a more serious threat hidden among this deal, As we have all seen in the press and the media, the relationship between Doland Trump and the press is not good
Neither is the relationship between the media and the public, with a Gallup Poll conducted last September showing only 32% of Americans trusting the media.
Compare this with the trust in the British media, with A 2016 poll conducted showing only 24% of people trusting the media in the UK.
with a combined 56% of British and American people trusting what the media put out it is quite alarming.
The BBC Provides more unbiased reporting with 48% of people agreeing whereas CBS have openly been biased against Trump with frequent commentary on events.
I’m Worried at the state of media in America having a wash over effect on our media. That in theory, the BBC could see its entire American reporting done by a partially biased source.
We already see this with Sky News and Fox News, The Two Organisations frequently share resources and both have been reprimanded for false information. Fox News Had to close broadcasting on election day because of their bias reporting.
It’s scary to think that at one point what we saw on TV was accurate and trusted now it’s a mixed bag and I hope the BBC Think clearly towards this deal.
Is it worth sharing resources if trust is low? could that be damaging to the BBC I think so.
