How To Handle Corporate Blackmail?

Harlockjds Talk to HR and only use HR as a reference (675 comments)

I'm assuming this is your manager making the threat and there is a separate HR department. If so then go to HR with your concern and only provide the HR person as your reference (which you should do anyways).

If not then I'd ask your new job if you can start sooner and explain the situation. You don't NEED to work a 2 week notice, it's nice that you are willing to do so but if they are not going to be happy with just a 2 week notice then give them nothing. I'd certainly not ask the new job to delay your start date, your obligation is to them now ,not your old job.

IT Job Without a Degree?

Harlockjds Re:Been there, done that (1123 comments)

very true i find that i've finally reached my limit in the quality of jobs i can get with my education (4 year degree in a non IT field 2 year IT degree). so i have to either start being self employed or got some more education (or be cozy knowing i no longer have any upward mobility)

IT Job Without a Degree?

Harlockjds yes but a 2 year degree will make it a bit easier (1123 comments)

The problem with not having a degree is that in a tight job market you are competing against people with degrees and more experience. Since you are asking this question i assume you have little experience and no degree so it's going to be tough even to get entry level jobs so i'd go get a 2 year degree in IT and some certs and work while you are in school. After you graduate you'll be in better shape to find a job because you will have a degree and expierience AND hopefully the economy will be better.

Harlockjds Re:Why is this a big deal (301 comments)

So what do you want them to do?

Correctly print the code in the first place?

Not require a code since it's not an effective form of protection?
