Lousy Job of the Week

Since our Irreverent Freelancer Kathy Kehrli is on temporary hiatus, I thought I’d help pick up some of the slack left in her absence. Kathy typically brings us The Ultimate Get-A-Clue Freelance Request weekly. In keeping with her theme, I bring you this week’s entrant for the Crappy Employer of the Minute Award:

“(Guilty company) is looking for a couple of interns to edit web copy with some writing. This is for resume credit only and does not require a large amount of writing.

When writing you will receive editorial credit for each piece written. It is best that you can work off interview notes. If you are not able to work off notes you are welcome to sit in on the interviews.
Please contact: Xxxxxxx XXX XXX XXXX.

Also seeking videographers.
Location: virtual
it’s NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
Compensation: no pay”

Tell ’em what you think, gang. And Kathy, hurry back. We miss you!

    Too many of this type of “job offering” on lots of freelance websites and such. Blah!

    What are these people smoking?

    They live in the land of “De-Lusion.”

    I hate it when people are looking for free labour and term it an “internship.” Gives REAL internships a bad name.
