You just earned your degree; now what? You have to start sending emails and applications to different companies with the hopes of getting hired. Job hunting is a huge task to undertake, especially when companies stop replying or don’t respond at all. And after hours of browsing different job posting sites, you’ve probably seen requirements that are just impossible. We’ve rounded up some of the most ridiculous job descriptions that will make you confused AF:
Always three steps ahead
What would you do if you were required to know something that doesn’t exist yet? Or have more years of experience on a program or tool that was only released a few years ago? Even the creator of that program wouldn’t be qualified for that job posting.
But internships are supposed to give you the experience, right? Imagine looking for potential companies to work at for your summer OJT (on-the-job training) and they ask you to have years of experience on certain skills. Also, why isn’t this company willing to pay a professional? At this day and age, no work must be free!
No experience needed
Say what? How did you earn that license to become a surgeon in the first place? I can already imagine the setting of this clinic: a dodgy “hospital” with a doctor who’ll eventually get caught, just like how we see it in the movies. Even Lee Jong Suk had years of experience as a surgeon before working in a sketchy hospital in the drama Doctor Stranger (2014).
As employees, aren’t we all this description on the inside?
Kidding. You’re tired all the time, and all you just want to do is lay on the floor all day. If all HRs were brutally honest, they would probably have this disclaimer on their company’s hiring page. LOL!
This is just too ridiculous. In what tragic world would a person with a doctorate apply for an entry-level position?
One of the most important things hiring officers look for in applicants is their work experience relevant to the job they’re applying for. However, this job posting is just simply asking for too much. Do they expect you to start training the moment you’re born? *sigh*
On call for a slow office
First, how slow is this office? Second, would they still require you to be available for 40 hours a week when they said you would only work a few hours? Maybe they have some hidden agenda or…?
Lucrative pudding business
At least you know what you’re going to get yourself into. Don’t say they didn’t warn you.
