Paris Hilton’s film, The Hottie And The Nottie, made $26,000 on 111 screens this weekend. That’s about 30 people per venue. And yet – she might get a full reality show based on the same plot. Not all of us are so lucky that we can fail miserably and still get work. It’s time for NO WUKKAS – THE JOB HUNT.
1. Deep Focus – Account Director, New York, NY
“I want people that are sponges â€” people that can soak up information and then wring it out in puddles of genius. People that can tell me the most recent non-fiction book theyâ€™ve read. People that understand (and write) blogs. People that know what the EFF is. People that can quote movies and can DJ. People that can compare sneakers with me. People that know creative is just art unless itâ€™s put in the right context and seen by the right people. People that can admit they are wrong. People that know the difference between â€œits” and â€œitâ€™s”. People that can beat me in Rock Band. People that have opinions. People that want to rise up-ah. People that believe they can make a difference. People that are willing to use their powers for good â€” not evil. People who realize that they are consumers too. People that want to be in advertising because they hate advertising. People that are english, psychology, computer science or math majors. People who know who Lee Majors is. People who can not only learn, but teach. People that can lead. And people that are probably reading this right now. Yeah. You.”
We’re sorry, but all job postings should read this way. We probably couldn’t beat Ian Schafer, author of this job posting and CEO of Deep Focus, at Rock Band, but Lee Majors? Check. People who want to be in advertising because they hate it? Check. People who can quote movies – “If you guys know so much about women, how come you’re here at like Gas ‘n Sip on a Saturday night, completely alone, drinking beers, no women anywhere?” Got it. It’s and its? Damn. Okay. Okay. We screw that up all the time, but that’s because we usually write these posts on our Sidekick and hope the intern is doing their job. Hello, intern? You fail us every day. Every day.
