Wow. What else is there to say?
Wish i could edit this, the formatting got lost...
did they miss a few zeros to the $250 or what? ... demanding cheapskate! who the fuck do they think we are? I could make 250$ faster working for mcdonalds minus the stress and responsibilities xD
where did you find the ad btw?
i want to have some fun
Are they paying in Canadian dollars too? That's like an extra $5 here in 'merica
Oh and please post this ad I would love to "apply" for this project.
also, "canada morning time" is hilarious. Canada has 6 time zones.
tell me its a joke one of you posted xD
You've asked, so here it is
No, no, no. This has to be a put-on. Plans, specs, 4 sections, 3D outline, details, design work, "more than 3 revisions a plus" and being at their beck and call 24/7, all for the princely sum of $250.00! This is a real howler! How are they going to pick the lucky applicant? Maybe multiple out of town (for you) interviews at your expense. Good God.
I have a pretty hard time believing this is real too...
let the real trolling begin.
anyone want to suggest what my pseudonym will be?
I can't imagine this is real, but I have no reason to believe it's trolling, either. It's on a job site I've never heard of, and they have other similar help-wanted ads up there, including this one (https://www.odesk.com/o/jobs/job/Edit-text-for-graphic-design-studio-website_~018ded5c28eba3371d/) asking for website proofreading for $20.
They're definitely a foreign company. Or something. I don't know. But it seems weird that anybody would put up a troll ad on a site where nobody will ever see it. I think somebody should get in touch with them.
this ad might be legit.. here is someone's response to a similar ad in Canada I believe xD
that ad might be legit... here is someones response to a similar ad in Canada xD
