Poorly written job descriptions can hide a good job, but you're usually better off not trying to find out.
Craigslist is a popular place to post free jobs listings. Sometimes the job titles are pretty funny. Here are 51 funny job listings from the site for your pun-filled enjoyment. This article was inspired by Word Sell’s Cartoon-Inspired Group Writing Project that I discovered on Group Writing Projects. When I saw the message on the gas pump, I first thought of all these funny resume blunders. Since Robyn - another blogger in this group writing project - already mentioned them in her hysterical post, I decided to compile this funny job titles list. Funny Job Titles Update 25/09/09: when I blogged this article, all the funny job titles linked to real postings on Craigslist. As time passed, Craigslist removed the old postings, breaking all my links so I've removed them. Believe me though, those were the real titles used. Enjoy!
Because people describing their own jobs is a lot funnier than having HR do it.
The Dream Job. The one that you never want to end. The one that you would love. The one that you've never had and may never have. Until now. In Theory Find out what you like doing best, and get someone to pay you for doing it Flashback. When I was a teenager growing up in Montreal, I loved baseball. A friend and I would try to see as many games as possible each summer, and every time we went to the stadium to watch our favorite team (the now-defunct Expos), we would rave about what work must be like as a batboy, the next best thing to actually being a player. Being a batboy was our dream job at that time, a job we would have done for free paid to do. The fact is that we saw only one facet of that job - the batboy helping the players during the game - and that if we'd known his entire job description including all the time he spends cleaning, polishing and shining, we would have set our hearts elsewhere.
