The internet was buzzing about a job posting for a nanny/household manager/best friend last week because it was so over the top. It was also 1475 words. That’s longer than many Atlantic articles. Most of what you read online is less than 1000 words.
In other words, this wasn’t a job posting; it was a fantasy novella about this hiring manager’s dream employee.
I wish I could say that she was the only one who writes fantasy in place of actual job descriptions, but long job descriptions are common.
You can find job descriptions listing 40 or more skills that a particular candidate needs to have. Do you know what that is? A fantasy novella.
