Dumb Recruiter Awards 2003

So many nominations already, and it's only February!
  1. The IT recruitment agency who rang me up today to ask if I was available immediately for a short-term Liverpool. Suddenly commuting to Barking doesn't seem so wacko after all.

  2. The London Borough of Brent, for seeing fit to produce a PDF application form on which all the text is light blue. Way to waste my colour cartridge, dudes!

  3. The Catholic Institution for International Relations, who require a Part-Time Web Officer (pro rata salary, 'part-time' not defined) with 'a minimum of three years' experience...particularly using Macromedia MX software'. They don't mention time travel as an essential skill but presumably it is since MX came out, er, less than a year ago by my count.
All these genii have jobs. I don't. What's wrong with this picture?
