One would think that will all the fuck ups in FÁS over the past few years coupled with the current unemployment numbers that they could at least get their jobs portal right?
Alas, no. I remember using it two years ago and it was shite then. Today, trying to advertise a job vacancy, I tried it again. It’s still shite. It’s unintuitive, riddled with errors, uses ridiculous autogenerated usernames for which I have to ring for a reminder and, worst of all, fails to let me submit a job:
I rang the first time for my username and reached a very helpful lady. I then rang a second time because of the above(to a different lady) and I was met with complete dis-interest: I’ll let the IT people know. Any further questions were not tolerated.
So, here I am, an employer with a job, and FÁS – Where Jobseekers Go – couldn’t care less. Job seekers, maybe you should go elsewhere…. And, from the pathetic state of the portal, it seems like FÁS haven’t cared in two years. I shudder to think how much it cost them…
