Jobs, No Jobs?

I was talking to a friend of mine and this is what he had to say — “Finally! a job application went through and I got a call back! But The manager showed up half an hour late, had no idea about the interview, called every local manager and manager assistant in the town and none of them knew who I was or had my application.

Whelp. Back to the dark depths of my bedroom for now.

I made an attempt to get out in public, and maybe meet some new people, but it just didn’t work.”

Now he has about 8 years of experience as a programmer. Are IT companies no more cool or they actually don’t have jobs and we are just being promised in the air?
