Perusing the Employment Ads

While scrolling through the employments of the local CraigsList, I stumbled upon a listing for a Full Time Invitation Designer. The listing boasts:

Blue Tulip is a one-of-a-kind store offering unique gifts, invitations and
stationery. Our store is built around the importance of celebrating family,
friends, and the occasions that bring us together. At Blue Tulip, we offer
an exciting, rewarding, bright workplace and seek the best talent to join
our growing team.
The list of skill sets one must posess to aquire the position of Invitation
Designer are that of a seasoned professional of design.

  • Knowledge of MAC and PC platforms

  • Expertise in Photoshop and Illustrator

  • Knowledge of commercial printing prep, inkjet printing, and scanning

  • Strong design and typography skills

The list goes on and on. Sounds perfect! I am an excellent candidate for this position, as I, by some miricle happen to meet all of these requirements.

Hmmm... salary? Searching... searching... searching... ah ha. WTF?!?!? $10-$12 per hour!?!

I couldn't support a flea on that income. Another one bites the dust...
