This Advertising Apprenticeship Sounds Crap-tastic!

Seriously, who writes these things? From the annals of Craigslist goodness here’s your advertising-job ad of the day. But, don’t take the job.

“Advertising Apprenticeship &#151 Art Director or Copywriter
I am what you want to be in a few years. Lots of awards, lots of contacts, plenty of interesting projects and earning over $200,000/yr.

If you have some raw talent and drive, this can be your chance to work on some great accounts, learn the ropes, get your portfolio out of ‘too student-y’ land and make a couple of bucks while you’re at it. Who knows &#151 you could see your name in the shows too.

It’s somewhere between an internship and a junior position, except that the hours are super-flexible, you can do it from home (most times) and you make money (sometimes).

Reply to this post with a link to your work and if you don’t hear back from me it’s probably because your work sucks.”

The writer of this ad sounds like a total enema bag.
