We’re inviting Java Developer candidates with a can-do attitude, a pragmatic soul and a trustworthy approach to execution to apply.

Strong c# and .net skills, backed with demonstrable experience
Highly skilled in database design and optimization, especially SQL Server
Experience with Web server technologies, mostly ASP.net
Also what the **** does LAMP have to do with C# development work?
Do you even know what LAMP stands for?
http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/L/LAMP.htmlShort for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP, an open-source Web development platform, also called a Web stack, that uses Linux as the operating system, Apache as the Web server, MySQL as the RDBMS and PHP as the object-oriented scripting language. Perl or Python is often substituted for PHP.
Wow these recruiters are getting dumber by the second.
At least they could copy and paste the spec from the company previously with relative accuracy. Now it seems like they are taking the hard work on themselves by using some kind of software development job spec generator to product long walls of invalid text which ultimately mean nothing and have direct conflicts within.
Ok i'm actually going to say something here....
Firstly the recruiter is the company themselves they are clear about that in the job spec. Secondly, you cannot assume that a person is dumb because they don't fully understand what it is you do every single day, IT is very very broad and it is IMPOSSIBLE for one person to understand absolutely everything about every single role underneath it so we (HR & recruitment professionals) rely on the IT professionals to ensure the information provided is 100% correct. Finally IF there is a job spec generator that recruiters use it was designed by an IT professional who clearly got it wrong.
Lukestar my apologies for hijacking your thread.
We get that IT is a broad subject matter/area but basics like mixing up Java and C# - are these specs not checked and vetted by the companies at all?
Another cause for concern is that the people writing up these job specs are the same ones formatting our CV's into a standard template (along with that useless skills matrix) right? So imagine a mistake like this one a CV.
And it does happen, I've been sent to C++ interviews by a recruiter when I was looking for C# work.
Surely you would proof read the spec before advertising it?
My point being, don't assume that as recruiters we are dumb because we don't always see what you see, we are trying to understand a boatload of roles with very very different tech.. point it out yes by all means because that is how we learn and grow our skill set to help you when you are looking for new opportunities. No need to make us feel like we add no value, because I can promise you each one of us have added value to many people needing a job
