What Do You Really Really Want?

I get annoyed with job ads that want three people in one applicant. Like this.
EXPERIENCED JOURNALIST REQUIRED

Skilled Headline Writer
Must be experienced journalist.
Skilled Headline Writer Must know Quark intimately.
Be acquainted with Photoshop.
Have keyboard speed of 60+ wpm.
Be super proficient with Apple platform.

What is it you really want? A good journalist or a good graphic artist? Or do you want an editorial assistant to type down dictation?

And when the employer asks for so many skills in one position you can only expect them to be tight arses who will pay their employees bugger all.

No wonder this employer seems to have an ad in Seek every couple of weeks.

A journalist who knows Quark intimately? Eugh!
