Forget the bland and boring job ads. 2010 has started with a bang! This week we bring you 3 contenders for job ad of the year. These 3 job ads have gone viral across the globe and continue to give us a laugh.
The first job ad caused a public relations nightmare for Albury truck company Border Express.
A disgruntled former employee of the company was able to modify a job ad for an IT Developer. He added a number of extra requirements
for the job including "DD Cup breasts, slim waist, tight twat
" and "applicants must be prepared to undergo a pre-employment strip search to ensure they meet the requirements of the position
Border Express first tried to blame SEEK for an apparent hack, and then the company later found out it was a former employee
who used to work in the HR department.
So who knows your passwords?
The second job ad was posted by marketing agency Razor on behalf of one of their clients Electronic Arts (EA) Australia for the upcoming release of the Xbox game Mass Effect 2.
The job ad titled "Biotic-Powered Super-Solider
" attracted over 12,000 views in 2 hours
before it was pulled down by SEEK for violation of their terms and conditions (the ad was obviously a fake).
The viral ad also attracted over 100 applications for the fake role. Some of the applications can be found here
The third was posted by Jobadder
who are looking for a new c# / .NET Developer. "Chris was a cardigan-wearing up and coming .Net Developer working in a large Local Government organisation
