Unemployment Nine: Huh?????????


I have vented many times in this space previously about how, with this horrific job market tilted completely toward those looking to hire and away from those looking to be hired, requirements in job listings are getting more and more ridiculous. And I found a great example of this today.

The following was listed among the requirements for a job that involved editing content for the Internet: “Applicant should be competent in operating a manual transmission automobile.”

Can someone please tell me what the fuck knowing how to drive a stick shift has to do with working on the Internet?

Wow, I seriously hate this job market more and more every day. Just when I think I’ve seen it all after nearly 21 months
