Funny Job Postings

funny job listings For most people, the job search is not much fun. But every once in awhile a funny job posting comes along that can bring a smile to your face and even spur an interest in the company. Here are a few of my favorites.

This ad from the Dallas Restaurant & Bar in Singapore is a good example of how important speaking multiple languages can be for job seekers in the current economy. Here, the employer is clearly looking for someone who can not only pour an excellent appletini, but who can also speak "inebriated" with at least conversational proficiency.



The tagline in the middle of this photo is just a classic. Congratulations to whomever thought up these ads for the Southland Bus Company. They've managed to shed a whole new light on what many would consider a thankless job.


Well, at least they're honest about their expectations ... no pressure here! Great ad from loyalty marketing specialists ICLP. If they can build followings like the one depicted in the painting, clearly they'll have no shortage of clients.


All I can say is: "Aren't we all!" This ad kind of makes you wonder if they're not setting themselves up for discrimination action from female applicants. I mean -- you think a bearded lady would really get an equal shake?
