Best Craigslist Job Hunting Post Ever (Warning: vulgar)

by Andrew · 346 comments

Last week Daily Anchor Editor Ella Keeven wrote a great article about her frustrations with job hunting in a recession,  “If All This ‘how-to…’ During A Recession Advice Worked, Then Why Don‘t I Have A Job?!

While Ella offered great insight into how to better position yourself in a job search by thinking of yourself as a product and a prospective employer as the customer, I’ve found another novel approach to the recession job search…

A colleague forwarded me the following Craigslist post, and while it’s wholly vulgar and wide outside the usual tenor of The Daily Anchor, I thought many of our readers would relate to this one man’s frustration.

Kids, don’t try this at home.

Date: 2008-12-02, 10:34PM CST

What the fuck people! I need a motherfuckin job, and I have a resume that says I am fucking fit to be your goddamn front desk/administrative assistant. I have applied to a ton of jobs on here, and not one of them responded, WHAT THE FUCK?!

Cover Letter? Here’s my fucking cover letter!
Now, I’m really low on money, and I’ll suck a dick if I have to…that’s right!
Got a bear in your backyard that keeps eating your garbage? I’ll fight that motherfucker and I’ll win! Can any other prospective employee say that?! FUCK NO! What’d you say? You lost your keys? FUCK IT! I’ll shoot the goddamn lock off your door with my laser eyes! That’s how bad I need a motherfuckin job! Your brother is gay and you’re not cool with that? I’ll de-gay him with reverse buttsex. Don’t believe me?! Then hire me and I’ll fucking show you!
