Default Wow! I just had to share this. Job Offer

Would you call these people? I mean, look at the spelling errors? I counted like 20 of them in the first sentence. Just sayin.. But if anyone is interested in calling..let us know. :-)

This is really sad. It shows how pathetic the written communication skills are in some companies. If this is what they think is OK to post for a job ad, what kind of people do they expect to get working for them?

And we wonder why the business sector in America is in the toilet...

I've seen companies write like that before in their job ads and then have the audacity to say they will evaluate you on grammar and spelling because 'it's important to them'.

Actually if you click on 'contact' it does leave a phone number, but you kinda wonder what kind of person will be on the other end.

It's possible the person who wrote it up speaks English as a second language and didn't know any native or fluent English speakers to help them or write it for them.

It is common for businesses to outsource ad posting using oDesk, Microworkers, etc.

Often they end up looking similar to this ad

I just saw the advertisement. It was posted 4 days ago. And the spelling errors are bad. I think I would not pursue this, but that's just me. HTH....Sharon
