Odd Jobs: Attention to Detail!

This week we kickoff a new Sunday feature: 

“Odd Jobs” -- a series of ironic, intriguing, and downright strange postings I’ve come across in my search for employment (scroll down for my editorializing).

Today’s offering, from Juilliard, is a simple spelling mistake, which could easily be forgiven if it were not for the required qualification: “Detailed Oriented.” 

I had half a mind to Photoshop the posting and send in an edited version as my application.

Oh well, at least it shows that they’re aware of their deficiencies. It takes strength to so openly admit one’s flaws. 


  1. If they didn't need help with the details, they wouldn't be hiring.
