Funny Job Descriptions

 ❌ Employers That Blatantly Want to Underpay Suck ❌

🀝As a former recruiter, I collaborated with HR all the time to figure out pay grades, pay scales, hourly rates, etc.

πŸ‘‰And about all of them always had a strict budget to comply with.

πŸ‘‰ You know who could care less about the budget when they found the candidate they wanted? Hiring Managers.

πŸ‘‰ But you cannot just pay whatever you think the candidate deserves. You must be calculated, but fair.

🧳 But this God-awful job advertisement just screams unequal pay.

🧳 I get it, having a graduate degree doesn’t necessarily equal more pay, nor more opportunities.

🧳 Sometimes the onus falls on the job seeker’s strategy and key marketing documents.

🧩 But have a freakin’ clue. Trying to hire someone who just spent $100K on school shouldn’t be lured into a job trying to pay you a somewhat entry-level rate.

❌ That shouldn’t be the case. Do better.

❌ This does not make for a sound work environment.

❌ Hiring shouldn’t be about who’s the most desperate and willing to take the job.

πŸ‘‰ This starts with the job description.

πŸ‘‰ As you can see, this picture says it all. Let’s find someone who will practically pay us to work here.

πŸ˜‚ Here’s my eighth post in the weekly series of #humorous (*I hope) memes in honor of some of the more lax verbiage I’ve seen.

What stuff do you see on job descriptions that drive you nuts?πŸ‘‡
