Understanding Help Wanted Ads

  1. Competitive Salary – we remain competitive by paying less than our competitors.
  2. Join our fast-paced team – we have no time to train you.
  3. Casual work atmosphere – we don’t pay enough to expect that you’ll dress up; well, a couple of the real daring guys wear earrings.
  4. Must be deadline oriented – you’ll be six months behind schedule on your first day.
  5. Some overtime required – some time each night and some time each weekend.
  6. Duties will vary – anyone in the office can boss you around.
  7. Career-minded – female applicants must be childless (and remain that way).
  8. No phone calls please – we’ve filled the job; our call for resumes is just a legal formality.
  9. Seeking candidates with a wide variety of experience – you’ll need it to replace three people who just left.
  10. Requires team leadership skills – you’ll have the responsibilities of a manager, without the pay or respect.
  11. Good communication skills – management communicates, you listen, figure out what they want and do it.

About martingilligan

Many of my friends and family have stated that I not only have a gift with words but also self expression. As long as I can remember I have always wanted to be a writer, but being my own worst critic, I tend either not to share my work, or take the necessary risks to accept the criticism one needs to grow and continue on with my craft. I often start on projects with the intent to succeed, but rarely if at any time do I continue to follow through. It is my hope that this experiment will be the necessary tool to keep me in the habit of pursuing my dream of writing, and continuing on even when Mr. Criticism comes knocking on my door. So as I often say, a blank page is an open invitation to view my thoughts and ideas as I bleed my creativity upon its empty space. So strap yourself in...the roller coaster ride is about to begin, as I welcome you to my madness.
