    NFTs

    Anyone grab a Damien Hirst then?
    https://www.heni.com/

    I like this project. I guess it's about legitimising NFTs. He's selling the NFTs of each of the 10,000 physical pieces then offering the physical piece but only if you burn the NFT.

    • Now there's a cash grab!formed
    • Certainly a lot of money involved $2000 x 10,000 = $20m! And I'm not a big DH fan to say the least but this project gets my approval.microkorg

    You apply to a job.

    • 2 weeks later asked to do some first stage questions, a few written questions, a few video recorded answers.

    • a week later HR want a brief interview, to check you can legally work, salary expectations, notice period.

    • week later big long interview with head of design, told you're the best candidate before interview even starts, interview goes on longer than schedule, good long talk, all seems great on both sides.

    • 1 week later request to do a video interview with marketing boss and later that day a video interview with boss of creative director .

    then.... nothing...

    4 weeks later.

    zip. nada. no email. no call. no rejection. nothing.

    You google search company name + head of design's name... see there's a new microsite up to promote the design team with a 'join now' button... google search indicates this was newly put up 3 days ago.

    You log back into the HR recruitment portal and your application says 'active'.

    Is this normal? What the F is going on? Am I rejected via ghosting?

    a whole month has passed and 2.5 months since I applied to the job. Zero contact from them to tell me what's in play.

    Are they holding off on a decision until the see if they can get better applications - without thinking to perhaps keep me in the loop?

    Just seems super rude. Worse there's no way to email/contact them unless i do something creepy like try to connect with them on LinkedIn.

    • From my side, looks like I'm rejected, by polite if they say so. This is the 2nd time I've gone through rounds of interview to then simple hear nothing.shapesalad
    • obviously my proof reading and typing needs working on.shapesalad
    • Only thought about all this - companies are full of young people (under 35) who are used to ghosting, culturally a norm, so they do that in recruiting?shapesalad
    • Just, whatever - don't take it personally. My partner does, way too much, and it really breaks her. Oftentimes, companies are chasing their own tailNairn
    • She got really despondent after one such interview. They didn't get back, then did via whatever industry site she uses. She took it personally as she thought ..Nairn
    • ..she was an ideal candidate. A week later the director contacted her directly, apologised profusely and explained why, and told her she'd be moreNairn
    • suited to working on other episodes they'd be working on. They were just mangled and chaotic with all the WFH confusion.Nairn
    • But fucking hell if she wasn't miserable for a few days there, pouring scorn and hellfire over the industry she was Definitely Going to Leave.Nairn
    • change your status on LinkedIn to "working at [your own studio]" then see the inquiries going thru the roof, then skip interviews just ask for offersgrafician
    • Also when they say "you're the right candidate" that means you're cheap but when they ghost you, means you were not cheap enough lolgrafician
    • they found your qbn account.
      completely normal, some asshole didn't liked your face, probably generated in-house controversy

    Oh dear lord.

    I've come into the studio for a couple of hours on a Saturday.

    Bar out front isn't busy so person who is working in there is loudly playing jungle and drum'n'bass with some very (very) deep bass. So deep it was making me feel nauseous a few minutes ago. I could feel it in my chest.

    And now some cunt down the road on my other ear has started playing some - i'm not even sure what it is - but it's like that really hardcore Dutch Gabba trance stuff and OH MY FUCKING CACOPHONY I just want to go back to bed.

    • Found the source of those Havava syndrome attacksgrafician

    • no tinnitus or headaches, but yeah i was working on music and then like a focus pull everything went mushy and mono followed by nausea. it was horrible.kingsteven
