Trump Orders Skills Based Hiring for Fed Jobs
« on: June 26, 2020, 06:36:39 PM »

About time. I saw so many worthless people hired all because they had a P, H, and D after their name, or based on the University they attended, that it was ridiculous. Some were indeed smart and talented, but it was almost luck of the draw, and I saw plenty of talented people passed over for promotions to higher positions - one brilliant and super hard working marine archeologist in particular - because they "only" had a Bachelors, regardless of how much skill they showed on the job.

Next thing you know the racist ****** will say something along the lines about judging people based on character and not the color of their skin.

When I was managing a company I had them do a diagnosis in bugged product. I didn't care if they had four years of college everyone did the same test at the end.

The people with common sense got hired.
Sometimes we carry more weight then we owe.
And sometimes goes on and on and on.
