The World's Most Honest Job Advertisement

If you're a reporter at the Illinois Valley News in southern Oregon, you can certainly accuse your bosses of making you work a lot of hours for not a lot of money. What you can't do, however, is claim that they didn't warn you.

The News is looking for a reporter. And in order to find that lucky he or she, the paper decided to provide as much transparency in its own listing as it (probably) demands of its own local government. Thus producing the world's most honest ad.
How bad do you want to be a reporter? Bad enough to work nights and weekends? The poor glutton for punishment that's chosen will cover city and county government. Sports and general interest feature stories.

In exchange for your long hours and tireless efforts you will be rewarded with low pay and marginal health insurance. Please send resume, and 3 writing samples to wonclive@yahoo.com This is a full time salaried position located in the beautiful northwest.

Your first assignment: proofreading any future job advertisements.
