A variation on my usual Wordless Wednesday post, this week.

I found this job advertisement online on Tuesday.

Apparently grammatical and spelling skills are not required.

Apart from a very minor alteration to the email address,

this is exactly how it appeared online.

Just think how hard we all worked on

spelling and grammar

    • Me too. As I have replied to others I am out of work this year and would love to teach them how to write a job advertisement or basic English. It is, after all, only Primary School standard.


    • I think I may have already done so. There was an ‘apply/View job ‘ button which I hit to have a look…then found an automatic reply thanking me for applying…on the original site. Somehow don’t think I will need to worry as most phtography positions seem to want someone under forty!

  1. It actually hurts reading it. Great find. But sad too, grammar was so drummed into us at school. We failed if we got even one mistake. Now the students don’t need to worry about grammar and spelling, as long as they are able to convey what they mean. No wonder standards are falling.


    • That’s a good way to describe it. I found the obvious ones easily…and then fullstops, commas, capital letters (or lack thereof) made it very hard to read. I have seen Grade one students use better spelling and grammar.


    • None whatsoever! Apparently. And yet most job advertisement require a ‘minimum of….‘ before one is considered. I looked at that advertisment because I am not working and would like to find something….but it makes you wonder if it’s a scam when written like that. And how reputable the company is.
