A client based in Japan had sent us a list of some Japanese texts and their English translations at our request which we needed. SM: Copy all the Japanese texts and their translations from document that client sent into a new document and send it back to client (to whom it came from) and ask them if they are correct. Me: Why are we doing that? SM: Just to ensure that we have validation in an email that client sent these translations to us. Me: Facepalm 🤦🏻‍♂️

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies.

How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?

Got messaged by a recruiter who said she works for a large fintech company and wanted to set up time to chat. Personally, I don’t like to go into recruiting calls blind so I asked if she could provide the name of the company and a job description, to which she said she can’t really give any additional details at this point in time. Is it normal for recruiters to do this? Or does it mean the role / company isn’t that good? I don’t want to waste 15-20 minutes of both of our times if possible.
