I think I wrote a post a while back about how every couple of weeks, I click on Craigslist to see what’s going on in the job market.
I saw this posting today:
I need someone to draw/create a one frame cartoon or animated picture that can will be approximately 3″ x 4″. The job pays $50.00 and your resume should be a Sunday cartoon type sample of your choice of human character. i.e. Send a sample and I will choose the style that I like. I will pick one person on Friday Oct., 24th.
At that time I will send to you the subject around which the drawing will be based.
* Location: XXXXXXX
* Compensation: $50.00
Posts like these are laughable and irritating to me.
Ok, say you go to grocery stores A, B & C. You get a steak from each, telling the cashier at each grocery store “I’m going to take your steak home. I’m going to cook it & eat it, and if I decide your steak is best, I will pay you for it, but not your regular price, I only want to pay $2.”
They’d laugh in your face.
That’s how I feel about postings like this.
This is insulting.
