Hmm. The job they SHOULD be advertising for is for proofreader.
Shades of “Up the Down Staircase.”
It’s all part of the cuts. If you can’t apply for the job, they don’t have to pay anyone.
Ah, the wisdom of the cunning folk. Thank you, Archdruid. All is now revealed.
Heh-heh. Yup, too typical.
Hey MP, I hope this helps: http://youtu.be/TbCVcPst6J4 [It helped me]
The advert is a test of perseverance. If you are standing still after reading that gobbledegook then you are entitled to apply for the post.
I think what they are trying to say is that CVs will only be accepted if they are accompanied by a letter, which does at least imply the applicant has thought about the post rather than merely doing a Mark Currie impression and pulling up a CV they made earlier.
On the other hand, Chelliah Laity is right – many application systems are deliberately dysfunctional to strain out the lazy and disengaged even before the application is sent in. Strange, and incredibly frustrating, but true.
Best of luck with the job hunting.
