A spade a spade

Posted By: EmmaMT on 2008-12-24
In Reply to: Very true. I've also found 20-30 years in SM - QA

The reality is, no matter how many YEARS you have behind you, if you have not set yourself up to excel you have no one to account for that but yourself.

I have 30+ years experience and like the poster above, if it's dictated I can type it. I've worked with VR, editing, QA, and as an MTSO. I know the ropes. I made sure I LEARNED the ropes. I've never asked for something I didn't earn.

I remember countless interviews with what I call johnny moms, they only want to work when Johnny sleeps or some other ridiculous thing.

Progress isn't always forward motion but it generally is always change.

If you can't absorb the changes and be successful, perhaps a bigger change is in order.

Calling a Spade a Spade
Anyone who scores an 80-anything on an MT test is not qualified.

You aren't experienced. You have typed one physician according to what I read and subbed for a company who operates in a shady fashion on the down-low.

It didn't occur to you to use a BOOK until someone sent you one?

I'm not a recruiter, I'm not QA, I'm an ex-MTSO and can tell you I wouldn't touch you with a 10-foot pole.

Lots of excuses, fluff instead of experience, and seemingly a willingness to blame it on just missed by one or some other outside influence rather than state what the reality is-- You don't have the skills or experience to be qualified as a well-rounded MT.

So my tip would be get the education necessary before inflicting your skills onto the unsuspecting QA staff who will undoubtedly have to spend their days making you look good.
