What job ling really means ========================== "JOIN OUR FAST-PACED COMPANY": We have no time to train you. "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. "MUST BE DEADLINE ORIENTED": You'll be six months behind schedule on your first day. "SOME OVERTIME REQUIRED": Some time each night and 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. "CAREER-MINDED": Female Applicants must be childless (and remain that way). "NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE": We've filled the job; our call for resumes is just a legal formality. "SEEKING CANDIDATES WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF EXPERIENCE": You'll need it to replace three people who just left. "PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS A MUST": You're walking into a company in perpetual chaos. "REQUIRES TEAM LEADERSHIP SKILLS": You'll have the responsibilities of a manager, without the pay or respect. "GOOD COMMUNICATION SKILLS": Management communicates, you listen, figure out what they want and do it.
