After that, no word. turns out, after I reached out to him today, he was no longer with the firm. So his replacement is scrambling and tells me that I was a potential candidate but the old guy never got the second interview process rolling. So, today, I get an email saying that there were 3 other candidates ahead of me that already did their second interviews last week and they're not going to move forward at this time.

    Fuckin' A

    Recruiters last around 3-6 months, I think.

    Yeah. It's harsh lesson to learn, though.

    D:

    Activision Publishing, Inc. and Bungie, together with energy drink category leader Red Bull today announced a partnership that will bring an epic new quest to players of the popular sci-fi action adventure game franchise Destiny via custom-designed Red Bull® Energy Drink cans, inviting consumers across the United States and Canada to Become Legend, making this the first time a video-game, or any third party brand, has ever appeared on the iconic Red Bull can.

    D:
    "This partnership brings two brands synonymous with adventure together to offer Destiny players a unique opportunity to further advance their Guardians in the Destiny universe," said Tim Ellis, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Activision. "Whether a player is new to Destiny or with us since launch, the special quest promotion will help give them the ‘wings' and experience boost to take on The Taken King."

    D:
    The limited edition Destiny can will also feature Red Bull athlete, member of professional eSports organization OpTic Gaming, and Destiny super-fan Michael "Flamesword" Chaves. Chaves will offer his expertise and experience as an eSports athlete and coach to help guide players through the quest.

    D:
    "I'm really excited to be a part of this partnership," said Michael "Flamesword" Chaves, Red Bull eSport athlete. "I love that Red Bull and Destiny have a shared sense of adventure, camaraderie, and pushing boundaries that both brands embody. As a former Coach of OpTic Gaming and Team Captain of my current squad, I'm always looking to help others be at their best. I am very much looking forward to coaching the Destiny community through the quest and help everyone Become Legend!"

    My parents used to have cleaners. They came on Wednesday, so every Tuesday night we'd have to clean and tidy the house so they didn't think we were pigs

    This is baffling

    We did the same, it makes some sense to pick up stuff from tables and the floor so it can be cleaned more quickly and of course if the cleaners had to move stuff around there is large chance things get placed somewhere you don't expect and can't find it.

    I mean the reason we had cleaners was my parents both worked full time. Between that, the dogs, driving the kid around and such there wasn't a lot of time to full clean the house. So it was worth having someone come in one a week to the general things like the bathtubs and vacuuming and stuff.

    As they got more towards retirement that stopped. Now they just clean themselves because they have time.

    I really don't see what the big deal is about the destiny/red bull thing. Every other time this has been done, it was just for the equivalent of an xp boost. Now you get early access to a quest. for like $2. if you wait till next year you just plain get it anyways.

    You have a year to upgrade for free. Wait a few months for the first patches to get put out then upgrade.

    So my worker with the government job agency is going to try to get me a grant to go back to school for 9 months to get an IT diploma

    For my end of things right now I basically have to find a bunch of jobs that program would make me qualified for to justify the grant and show there's a job market out there for the education

    If it all works out I should be able to move into doing IT

    Because Red Bull branding inside a futuristic video game (the promotional shot from the quote tree has the Destiny background in it so I'm betting the sponsorship will be advertised in-game) is a bunch of bullshit that further cements video gaming as a corporate product rather than an art form?

    Also, Red Bull is a vile drink unless it's mixed with Vodka (though it is still pretty vile). It's not as vile as Dr. Pepper, but it's pretty bad as beverages go.

    It's funny that the two worst soft drinks in all of creation partnered with two of the worst video game publishers ever to add some bullshit branding to their franchise.

    At least EA waited until the second full game in the series.

    Housecleaning can pick up after your filthy ass mess, but their time is much better spent if you actually pick up after yourselves so you can have them do the stuff that is actually arduous. Windows, dusting on top of ceiling fans, cleaning under the sink etc.
