Over-specification in recruitment – a light-hearted quip


Whilst the current recession has seen the rise of increasing specificity in recruitment briefs, the example below tickled me when I read it today.

The job ad below is actually searching for a part-time copywriter who is fluent in Chinese. But when I read the ad for the first time, I wondered if they were searching for someone who is Chinese on a part-time basis? Presumably the person hiring isn’t bothered by what nationality the person is outside of office hours? No wonder they need a copywriter.

Pet peeve addressed; I’m now ready for miso soup and noodles.
