Re: Honesty in advertising?

Indeed. Even more important I think is that your boss will really understand that your job sucks, and how, which might make having a job that sucks easier to take. The job they are offering is not that different than what a lot of people do, but their bosses think they should be happy and fulfilled doing it.

Of course this was all a scam to get publicity - I think they said "we can't find anyone qualified who wants to take this job, the only ones interested are vastly unqualified...what can we do to stand out amongst the thousands offering similar jobs?" Obviously they let the team doing this work currently write the job description and told them to be brutally honest and highlight the worst parts of the job. They hoped it would get attention like this.
