    Helpful advisory in job description

    debacle · Thursday, 27 May, 2021 - 08:00 edit

In some work environments it is - unfortunately - not yet possible to avoid the use of certain shady, non-free services. Even in the area of #freesoftware. Of course, many of us would prefer not to use #Zoom or #Slack etc.

Still, many #job description do not contain any hint, that such tools are used at work. (I'm not looking for a job, so I might have missed a new trend here.) Therefore kudos to #OTS (Open Tech Strategies) for including this warning in their job posting on the #Debian jobs mailing list:

Please note that some of our clients use proprietary communications tools, e.g., Zoom, Google Docs, Slack, etc, and therefore applicants need to be willing to use such tools when interacting with those clients.

Nice!
