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 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.
