Truth in advertising

January 18, 2008 0 Comments

I don’t know how long this want ad for a “Manager of Technical Engineering” will remain (unaltered) on the net, but the following excerpt is amusingly honest (emphasis added):

Must be able to support all needs of the VP of Customer Support. This includes collaborative thinking in such areas as resource allocation, personnel actions, departmental events, professional development, organizational structure and team building. Additionally includes unwavering support of all decisions made by the VP of Customer Service.

Heh.  Hat tip to Dave Barry (yes, that Dave Barry).
