Great Job Posting

On April 9, 2008, in All, Industry Analysis, Job Boards, JohnSumser.com, Sourcing, by John Sumser

In the transition, I’ve gotten all sorts of new accounts. Johnsumser.com is hosted by a company called DreamHosts, these days. I haven’t been a customer long enough to decide whether or not I like them. But, they do know how to write a job ad.

Item #3 in their current newsletter (sent to customers, exclusively) is the following gem:

Have you always dreamed of a career in groveling and prostrating oneself before the almighty customer? Do you love offering your bare soul up to the masses for piercing scrutiny and painful mockery? Are you a natural-  born apologizer like me?

Then a career at DreamHost could be the job for you! We’re now taking applications for our (paid) “Summer” internships, which are actually for whenever and for as long as forever:

And, we’re always hiring people for regular jobs too… see:

If you’ve already got a great job with great people and great apologies, then I hope you’ll accept my sincerest regrets at wasting your time with this section.

It’s funny, specific, targeted gives a flavor of the culture and very, very authentic. By putting it in the newsletter, DreamHost acknowledges what most companies know….great customers make great employees.
