For Sale – *Crazy price drop*: Maxed-out 15″ mid-2017 MacBook Pro, Space Grey: 3.1GHz i7, 1TB SSD

Hi folks,

Here is my beloved 15″ Mid-2017 MacBook Pro in Space Gray, maxed-out by Apple, which I’ve owned from new. It’s working perfectly and is in superb condition. I’ve since upsized to the 16″, so the 15″ is up for grabs.

Summary specifications:

MacBook Pro (15-inch, mid-2017, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports, Touch Bar, Touch ID)
Processor 3.1GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost to 4.1GHz) with 8MB shared L3 cache
Memory 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
Startup Disk 1TB PCIe-based SSD
Graphics AMD Radeon Pro 560 (4GB GDDR5) and Intel Iris Graphics 630 (1536 MB)

Full spec breakdown from Apple here.

Condition: the MacBook has been kept in a smoke-free, pet-free home and cleaned using iKlear every month or so. There is no damage to the screen and there are no fingerprint or keyboard-grid marks (I’ve tried to capture this in the photos). There is however a very slight nick on the outside of the lid which I’ve captured and highlightled in the photos. I’ve taken very good care of the machine; you won’t be disappointed

There’s a fresh install of macOS Catalina, and it’ll be packaged in the retail box with screen/keyboard tissue and all original accessories. I can provide the full system report and invoice upon request.

The machine was £3,249, I’m looking for the price shown below (including postage), but offers will be considered. (Receipt below. Postage estimate is £30, so I’ll take this off the price for a collection.)

If you have any questions, or need me to post additional photos, just let me know in this thread. Photos and system report pics follow.

Wanted – Cheapish Laptop

I’ve got a Vaio Z56VRG, C2D T9900, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 1600×900 IPS screen. Windows 10 Pro which runs decently well on that machine, clean of all the unnecessary stuff, will all the Vaio utilities installed. Ready to roll, was surprised how easy it was to get all the bits working despite the venerable age.

Looking for £80-100

EDIT: battery is also fine, I bet you can get 3-4 hours out of it. Rated for 59mWh, but I haven’t done any battery tests on it. It does hold charge when I unplugged it

As hiring booms, HR survey raises warning for recruiters

The U.S. labor market data Friday, which showed a gain of 266,000 jobs, called out a few areas as high growth. It cited “notable job gains” in healthcare and professional and technical services. They are two areas that pose big challenges for recruiters, according to a new HR survey.

Professional services firm PwC surveyed 10,000 U.S. workers — all professionals — either in the workforce or looking for work. A key finding in the HR survey data was this: Almost half, 49%, of the professionals surveyed have turned down an offer due to a bad recruiting experience.

They identified themselves as prospective candidates who were made offers but still rejected the job, the HR survey reported.

There are reasons for the high rejection rate, according to Bhushan Sethi, the global people and organization leader at PwC. It could be the result of a lengthy recruiting process, inconsistencies in the attitudes of the people prospective employees met with, or repeated requests for documentation, such as work authorizations.

Sethi said that candidate experience is often thought of as a technology problem. But it’s the more human elements, such as a timely follow-up with candidates, that could be the source of the blame. Candidates, especially those who “probably have multiple choices for their future employment,” want human interaction throughout the recruiting process, Sethi said.

Professional jobs see large gains

Will there be a sector of the workforce that will trade their transparency — so you understand everything about them — for a better opportunity?
Bhushan SethiGlobal people and organization leader, PwC

The government labor report said that employment in professional and technical services increased by 31,000 last month and by 278,000 over the last 12 months. The labor category comprises workers who perform professional, scientific and technical activities for others. It includes accounting, architectural and engineering services, as well as computer design services, among others.

Sethi said organizations need consistent and transparent recruiting processes.

Separately, 62% of professionals want to work at firms committed to improving workplace diversity and inclusion. Social issues, such as climate change, are part of this, and employee activism has been on the rise, publicly and internally.

Candidates are willing to sacrifice higher pay for opportunities like these, Sethi said. They are “willing to trade salary for good work experience and a place that aligns with their own values.” This includes upskilling or training opportunities.

Candidates are willing to make tradeoffs

A surprising finding in the HR survey data is the willingness of candidates to share social media data, if it helps get a good job. Just over 60% said they would give a prospective employer access to social media data now kept private.

“Will there be a sector of the workforce that will trade their transparency — so you understand everything about them — for a better opportunity?” Sethi said. The survey suggested candidates might be willing to make that tradeoff, but few firms are asking for social media access, he said.

Companies that invest in virtual reality as part of the candidate experience may see a payoff. The survey indicated that 62% “say they’re more likely to consider taking a role if they had a chance to experience the actual job through technology.”
