There’s definitely something odd about job advertisements on a Friday. A quick look through the jobs advertised on seek.com.au in the ACT region today has tossed up these:
- A laundromat job which requires a police check
- The Australian Secret Intelligence Service (Australia’s overseas secret intelligence collection agency) looking for a locksmith who can travel interstate and overseas at short notice.
- The federal Department of Education, Training and the Arts listing three identical ads for a physiotherapist job in Queensland as an ACT job in the space of two minutes.
- Frontline Retail (a recruitment agency) posting the majority of their brief job descriptions (the short blurbs which appear in search results) for the day entirely in capital letters with excessive use of exclamation marks and question marks.
At least I’m being entertained by the job advertisements.
