JOB DESCRIPTION - MOTHER
”Being a mom is often said to be the hardest job in the world — and now 24 more people know that being one may come with paltry “benefits.” A Boston-based ad agency, Mullen, created a campaign for Cardstore.com where 24 people interviewed for what they thought to be a corporate “Director of Operations” position at a company called Rehtom, Inc (can you read backwards?).
The role had seemingly crappy requirements, such as:
Must be able to work 135+ hours a week
Willingness to forgo any breaks
Ph.D. in psychology or real-life equivalent
Crisis management skills a must
Ability to manage a minimum of 10-15 projects at one time
Ability to communicate at all levels (basic to advanced)
Ability to work in a chaotic environment
Excellent interpersonal skills and a collaborative approach
Demonstrated knowledge and experience in negotiating, counseling and culinary arts
Understanding of social media, mobile devices and video games, finance and medicine.
And although the salary is $0, the job promises “infinite opportunities for personal growth and rewards.”
Does this job description sound accurate to you?”
