Interpreting Employment Ads

"Competitive Salary"
- We remain competitive by paying less than our competitors.

"Join Our Fast Paced Company"
- We have no time to train you.

"Casual Work Atmosphere"
- We don't pay enough to expect that you will dress up.

"Must be Deadline Oriented"
- You will be six months behind schedule on your first day.

"Some Overtime Required"
- Some time each night, some time each weekend.

"Duties will Vary"
- Anyone in the office can boss you around.

"Must have an Eye for Detail"
- We have no quality control.

"Seeking Candidates with a Wide Variety of Experience"
- You will need to replace three people who just left.

"Problem Solving Skills a Must"
- You are walking into a company in perpetual chaos. Haven't heard a word from anyone out there. Your first task is to find out what is going on.

  • oooh, some overtime required. Don't think I will ever apply for a job that states that. Some each night and weekend too. I would really have to like that job!
