Found the following gem on job posting. It is very possibly the dumbest thing I have ever read.
A gret sign that the company is one to avoid, I think.
Reading between the lines I see "We're looking for applicants who have a pulse and are functionally literate. That is all."
The person who wrote that ad is way too paranoid that he/she doesn't sound smart enough in normal conversation.
We will accept common sense real world learning over book learning (college boys), unless college grads are willing to work cheap enough.
A lot of jobs I have looked at have said something similar to that. It makes sense, most jobs I qualify for require a degree in electrical engineering, but I have 8 years operational experience so the degree is no longer required.
I had to read the quote three times to get an idea of what the employer was trying to say. Kinda like a Japanese instruction manual.
Whew! Thought I was the only one.
You know what's scary? For some people out there, abracadabra like that is the native language. "Hi honey, is your combination of relevant abilities providing a qualifying experience today?"
Also they have to make sure it's worded so in no way can it be considered discriminatory or non-PC.
Sounds like an Indian call center add - except they are all graduates.......
In other words, If you can wake up and find the office your hired.
