Stupid Job Post of the Year

Okay, I understand if your company doesn’t have a big budget. These things happen. But, there’s such a thing as idiocy.

Look what I found on craigslist!

$12/hr + benefits. You just have to know MySQL, PHP, AJAX, LAMP/WAMP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript. They’ll smile on you even bigger if you know C++, Flash, Photoshop, PHP-PDF Conversions (heh), XHTML, XML, and “WEB 2.0”.

That’s $24,000 a year, folks. So nice of a company in Fremont, which is right on the edge of the Silicon Valley, to be so pants-shittingly generous. Hey, TEMCo, you might want to do a little research about what the kind of laundry list you’ve posted warrants in the real world. It ain’t a dozen an hour, sweet cheeks.

10x that, and I’d consider it…

I don’t know if it was little old me that did it, but they seem to have removed the $12/hr figure from their job post. It’s been reposted on craigslist today with the small print: “Compensation: Compensation varies dependant upon qualifications and previous experience.” They’ve either raised their expectations in terms of what web application developers cost, or they’re going to spring it on somebody unexpectedly. I’m an optimist, though, so I’m going to assume they’ve seen the light and are going to offer more money.


I imagine they probably got a lot of email about that.
