If you have some negative energy that needs to be channelled productively, send it in the direction of this job advert.
The post can be found on Linked In, the site which is usually used for professional networking, employers posting jobs and job seekers posting their CVs, the company in question is seeking a communications coordinator and personal secretary… But it’s the job description which is on the receiving end of heaps of backlash.
NOT because it doesn’t offer a competitive salary, not because it requires five years of experience for an entry-level role, (the usual gripes) in THIS case, the job description specifies they’re looking for single women only, who must be under 28 years. The salary for the full-time position was not listed and so far the job advert has over 200 applicants.
I’ll repeat, to qualify for this position you must be single, a woman, and under the age of 28.
Spotted by resident Nicola Ellegaard and shared on Twitter, the resulting debate proves people are sick and tired of this type of behaviour

The type of boss nobody wants nor needs
Ewww. Sounds like a good old fashioned pervy boss right there!

People are ripping apart the advert for all kinds of reasons
@DawnPDSi Still, at least “good verbal and written communications skills” does not appear to include a good knowledge of English grammar and usage…

The role even asks the potential candidates to be ‘always available’
Let’s look at the positives
Well this makes it easier to spot and avoid pervy employers so in a way it’s good?
