Job Title of the Week:

leave a comment »

“Perishable Senior Team Leader”*.

I didn’t read the ad, not yet having passed my sell by date, but I imagine it went something like this:

“Are you a senior looking to be worked to death? Come join our team for this exciting short-term opportunity! Benefits include life insurance with the company as beneficiary!

Immortals need not apply”

Alternatively, it could be an al-Qaeda recruiting piece:

“Looking to make a difference by taking on The Great Satan? We’re looking for a few good martyrs with the drive and dedication to handle explosive situations. This is a short-term opportunity with a prominent organization with an international presence and impact. This is an equal opportunity employer looking to diversify their organization to blend in around the world.

Requirements include knowledge of basic chemistry, wiring, and dodging predator drones.   Successful candidates may qualify for up to 72 virgins in the next life. Training provided.”

Or it could simply be an ad for a local grocery store looking for help. Nahhh.


* an actual title of a posting on Career Builder in June 2010.
