ACCURATY is critical. Well duh.

I will feign surprise that “bilingual language in Chinese” is preferred:

As opposed to a COBOL-based batch-processing system:

Makes for an interesting business card:

Maybe I should just see if McDonald’s is hiring:

jobs-15anhour

Familiarity with, punctuation would. also be helpful;

jobs-PositionCorrectly

Hustler Hollywood Corporate in Beverly Hills is hiring a Staff Accountant.

You know what’s next, right?

Oh dear me:

“Founded more than 60 years ago, ______ College has remained dedicated to the fundamental principles of inclusion, social justice, and the valuing of every human being. _______ has a long history of serving non-traditional and adult students; and has become known and recognized for its progressive approach to teaching and learning—valuing real-world experiences in addition to academic achievements.”

Wowie zowie but that’s a hot mess of Leftist dog whistles.

The phrase “social justice” never fails to amuse me. If you add a prefix to the word justice, it probably isn’t.

“Controller.” Not “accountant.”

I know, right?

——–

“[Company name] is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, and protected veteran status.”

Cool. But what’s missing?

Oh, age.
