not completely qualified

Sometimes I check a couple of on line spots for job openings for K.
He's good at what he does, has a wealth of experience and can easily slip into several different jobs...

Here's today's reject -

Responsibilities:

Looking for eager, talented, and efficient Final Cut Pro editor for in-house edit suite.

Okay, he RAN an in-house edit facility...

Experience with Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro a must, and have a working knowledge of After Effects & Combustion, and should understand compression for the web, broadcast specs, multi-format editing (SD, Anamorphic, HD, Uncompressed 8 Bit), and MPEG-2 Transport stream (a plus).

That's cool - he knows all that stuff...

Salary commensurate with experience.

If it REALLY is commensurate with experience he'd make good money. But we all know this ad doesn't read like it's good money...

Qualifications

- An energetic team-player with a positive attitude

His attitude is energetic, but waning...

- Extremely organized, self-starter

Extremely is an understatement...

- Ability to handle strict deadlines

You needed it yesterday? That's his speciality...

- 2-4 years of related experience

Check.

- Must be comfortable working with male-oriented adult content

WTF?
NEXT.

Pray tell, what man is not comfortable with male-oriented adult content???

JB speaks of a really talented photographer he knew some years back, that shot for Penthouse. How much talent does it take to shoot T&A? He also mentions what an ungodly amount of money the fellow made...

Yeah but think of all the material he'd have for you to blog about.
Anne said…
Penthouse is a lot closer to art than lesbian cheerleaders

Hmm. Lots of room for interpretation there with last qualification, don't you think??

If it's female porn - bb wouldn't like me doing it.
If it's male porn - I wouldn't like me doing it.
(Not that there's anything wrong with that!)

Well, it depends on which male orientation. I second what K says in his comment.
BabelBabe said…
i totally read it as meaning male-porn, for gay men.

they might want to clear that up...

HA HA HA
I like they just slipped it in as the last requirement...
And I know it's not funny and I am not supposed to laugh...but still.

It is the dinner party scenario that worries me...
jenny said…
Maybe it's for Monday Night Football???

Yeah, probably not.
