Irony disconnect

Still keeping an eye out for that elusive challenging role on reasonable terms…

Although I am keen to stay in Energy or commodity trading, I have also strayed into applying for bank type roles because of my financial services background.

Its pretty ironic to see their 50 page plus bullshit recruitment bullshit about trustworthiness, and creditworthiness.

Bank trust:

Banks miss-selling complex derivatives.

Banks manipulating LIBOR.

Bank creditworthiness:

UK banks bailout.

Euro banks bailout.

and don’t get me started on ‘must have experience of testing’:

Bank testing.

Probably best if I steer clear of banks really, I would hate to develop some of the traits they seem to reward.

The disconnect between the way some of these banks perceive themselves, versus the way these malpractice investigations demonstrate them to be is, I find, amusingly ironic.
