Through the looking glass (with cheap drawings)
#1
The dive off the precipis continues... the latest IFA jobs bulletin includes an advert for an Illustrator at a major Cambridge based unit. The salary is technically above minima (£17877-21145), but we all know which end of the scale will be offered, with skills including CAD, GIS and others but notably the final caveat "will also be able to provide advice to less experienced illustrators as required".

This is a professional entry level position so who on earth is going to be less-experienced within the company, and if there is a supervisory compinent they should come clean and pay for it. I know the field archs out there are liable to scoff slightly at 'specialist' positions, and I agree they are equally specialist in their element, but given the suite of technical skills and the time it takes to learn and execute them properly, this just feels like its taking the lead out of my pencil.

I agree, anything that has a supervisory element in it, shouldn't just be above minima

Thing is pot is shouldn't you be trying to sell your product to the museums rather than the field archaeologists?
