Actual Lines from Job Ads.

These are direct quotations from employment advertisements that I have encountered in the last month or so.
  • We are an international company with offices in Menlo Park, California and Kyiv, Ukraine.
  • Want to be a part of the digital video revolution?
  • What you bring to the game: An attitude that says, "Never settle for the ordinary."
  • The Managing Editor should have a brain whose synaptic firing could power a favela slum.
  • Are you up on the hottest job market trends? Do you enjoy discussing the latest career news with your friends and family?
  • We don't have any intention of letting go of the reigns [sic] of this Blogging Battlestar Galactica completely, but we figured it's best to start looking for new talent now and empowering them with a venue "all their own!"
Who's getting their resumes ready?

    Blogging Battlestar Galactica? Sign me the frack up!

    Favela? Just had to wikipedia that -- so basically, the primary requirement for this job is that you don't mind them wiring your brain to a Brazilian shanty town? It's like the "Spock's Brain" episode of Star Trek.

    (yes, there's two too many nerdly sci-fi references in this comment, but nut-up and deal with it!)

    Wouldn't it be frighteningly awesome if these were all from a SINGLE want ad?

  2. those are great. i really need to look for new jobs every now and then.

  4. This is a sign that perhaps those people who write these ads should write an ad for their own positions soon for the greater good of the company.

  5. this is hysterical.

    I wrote about some craigslist ads for my industry-- it is truly amazing what's out there!
