Job Posting FAILURE

FAILURE!!I get a daily email from Indeed for local jobs. I quickly review these openings and then share relevant postings with some of the job seekers that I am coaching.

Here is one that really caught my eye this morning because it is riddled with FAILURE:

Spokesperson / Administrative Assistant
LDV – Greensboro, NC
VERY IMPORTANT: Go to  www.triadspokesmodel.com and complete our online application process.

We are a digital media and marketing company located in Greensboro. We are actively seeking an attractive individual who can be both a spokesperson representing our brand on our website as well as our upscale client’s brands and also take care of administrative tasks in the office such as invoicing, answering phones, assisting customers and employees, some marketing efforts including social media presence, etc. The candidate must be detail oriented and organized. This is a 20-30 hour per week position that will likely lead to a full time position. We anticipate you will find this to be a fun job with something different to do everyday.

This posting is filled with numerous problems for whomever takes the job.

Here is the message I sent to the recruiter:

The only reason I filled out this application is to tell the recruiter – your job description is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve seen from a Greensboro company in ages.

Really – attractive individual?
Be a Spokesperson and do admin tasks
invoicing is not admin, assisting customers is not admin, marketing is not admin, social media – ADMIN??? 
Yet, you say, that this is a fun job. I’m sure it will be filled with something different everyday

Thanks for allowing me to counsel you and to create a great story that may help others.
