You've got nothing to apologise for, there's no way you would've known! I have more privilege because people do just think I'm a white dude 😁

Thank you Rachel ♥ unfortunately I'm only white-ish as I'm half Indian, but no one can tell so it definitely plays in my favour!

Haha thanks. Yes public sector are public, and the range for my salary is viewable for people so I'm just making it more specific ☺ Capital One are generally quite visible with their salaries - and a senior manager mentioned they're happy me sharing it, I assume largely because the company is happy with how they fairly compensate employees

One thing Capital One at least does is make it very competitive, as a way of bringing talent out of London - even though we also have London offices - I believe the salaries are higher now too!

I 100% agree 😅 definitely seems a bit steep when you compare to jobs that actually deserve more like nurses, teachers etc

Ooh good shout - would looking at my CV (https://hire.jvt.me) help? Or is a bit more info needed?

While on placement year at Intel I was involved in interviewing for my replacement, and someone demoed "their code" which was a sample project from the Android SDK and despite asking pointed questions, they didn't admit to it 😬
