Recipe For Rhubarb Crumble

Last year I went for my first job interview in over 20 years. I was contacted by a PA of a company who were looking for someone to upload blog posts for them onto WordPress. I thought this would be a nice source of extra income, and the project sounded really good. In the follow up I was asked how much I would charge to work for the company on a freelance basis. So I quoted what I thought was a fair rate given my skill level and experience and the feedback was that my price was too high. As I will not work for peanuts I left it at that, rather than lower my ask. So, I was quite surprised when I was contacted again by the PA to submit an application for the position. Not being willing to crumble on my previous rate, I submitted the same rate and was most surprised to be contacted by the owner of the company. However, in her email to me she asked for my rate and my proficiency level on WordPress. It was as if she had not read my email to her PA. Part of her reply informed me that the working hours could amount to 200 per month. Thereby making it a full time job of 10 hours per working day. She also asked to meet with me. Not wanting to waste my time again on an interview that would lead nowhere I decided to send her an email outlying my rates and hours I would work on a freelance basis. Of course, the response was not positive. I get the feeling that they are looking for cheap labour! If you are looking for a positive response, look no further than this simple recipe for rhubarb crumble. Perfect for dessert when rhubarb is in season.

  5. It amazes me that some companies think people want to work hard for peanuts! There are so many out there with that idea, too! A lovely recipe, by the way. I just shared my rhubarb crumble recipe as well. Snap. xo : )

  7. I love rhubarb, and your crumble recipe sounds delicious, Tandy. Yes, it does sound as though these people want your expertise, but aren’t wanting to pay a fair rate for the hours involved. 🙁

  9. Sorry to hear about that Tandy. Some people are such time wasters and good for you for not wasting any more of your time going in for interviews with people that don’t bother reading the basics about someone.

  10. It’s always good to look back on true stories in our lives and share them. What’s even greater is we learn from each of them. Thanks for the pondering post and of course, the creative rhubarb recipe 🙂

  11. It always makes me laugh (not) that some people seem to think that they don’t need to pay as much for internet work! They ask us to do it because they can’t – doesn’t that tell then something!
