Email from recruiter:
At least 3 c’s at A-level
Several years’ experience in production database administration using Microsoft SQL Server 2008/2012
Good understanding of database technologies
Good theoretical knowledge of SQL Server
Experience in Replication Mirroring and Log Shipping.
And my reply :
I’m sorry, but even if I was interested, I couldn’t apply.
I don’t have a 2:1, nor 3 Cs at A-level.
What I do have is 20 years IT experience, 14 of which have been with SQL Server.
Sorry I can’t help you out with this one. It seems a little odd to me that your client is willing to pay up to £75k for a *theroretical* knowledge of something. For that kind of remuneration, you’d think they wanted someone who knew a lot about the subject matter.
Please keep me in mind for future opportunities that don’t have arbitrary education requirements ?
Thanks, – Read on Path.
