Thanks. I was worried it may mean something like OTE.
OTE?

I've come to the conclusion that job ads that say "£neg", the neg means negligible!
No, it means they want to pay you as little as possible, and the amount is so embarrassing, they won't even put it in the advert!!

It's the same thing really!
 
I guess I am going to be the nasty one :) Shocking that a question like that and the subsequent OTE needed answering....In my mind it would be a case of go back to school and pay some more attention, or don't even think of applying for a job paying that kind of money....

I am absolutely amazed....

:eek: please don't be so rude. He was asking an innocent question, not asking for your slating. Play nice now, please.

I went to a Grammar school and was never taught Circa..... ( Its one of many things school didnt teach me.........school dont ya just love it!!:rolleyes: )

In fact (slightly off topic), when I was at school financial awareness and general savvy werent an option, its something that was self taught - or if your lucky your parents tell you....rant over
 
The difference is that I don't think I am being rude I am more reflecting the thoughts of someone who might recruit someone (as I have done many a time) and highlight that the aims may be a little high when questions like that need answering, although I realise that the perception in this world of PC will dictate the opposite...

From an employers perspective, innocent questions like that should be answered by English lessons and perhaps a dictionary. Asking others is a sign of laziness.....

I went to a comp, and c. / circa was often brought up in history as regards imprecise dates... e.g Julius Caesar visited Britain c.55 B.C.


EDIT.. that year was probably correct so no need for circa.... but you get my point ;)

TBH dejongj, you are being rude.

Yes, you may be giving an "employer's perspective" (note the use of the apostrophe - a basic skill I picked up at school, maybe you were absent that day??), but the op was only asking a question. To blatantly state that he is academically lacking and lazy, that is arrogant and condescending.

Asking others is not a sign of laziness, but rather is a sign of using the resources at hand in order to address a query.

Kind Regards,

btw even though I answered your OTE question earlier, I didn't know what it precisely stood for, until I worked in sales about 7 years ago; could not find it in the OED (which does have abbreviations) or on the web... it was a recruitment consultant that first answered this question for me

Anyway.... agree that when a fellow forum member asks a question, its rude, arrogant and unfriendly to come back with a moan/insult :thumbsdow
- there are other sociopolitical type threads here or elsewhere for people to get on their soapbox :lesson:

PPS. Yes there is a long queue to 'chin' me, why do you thing I work in the UK...A queue I can manage, anywhere else they would all attack at once :rotfl:
