Heavy lifting needed for today’s Comms jobs

Ever seen those job openings with meaningless phrases, and things that have carried over from the eighties? You probably see them so often you just don’t notice.

  • Out-of-the box thinker
  • Some heavy lifting is required
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • The ability to work in a consensus-oriented environment
  • Be able to work collaboratively in a high pressure, high visibility, and fast paced environment.

Do they still offer positions to folks with weak interpersonal skills? Inside-the-box thinkers? Those who only operate in a slow-paced office?

This one, for a Marketing and PR position coming via Ragan Communications, had a line that looked like those ‘other duties as required’ might mean stacking those unwanted brochures on tall shelves in the warehouse.

“A valid driver’s license and the ability to left up to 70 pounds also required.”

Heavy lifting required, I guess.
