McSweeney's - "A Great Job Opportunity!" (parody)

Raise your hand if you're looking for a job, but think you're overqualified and underappreciated, and likely not to be paid enough? McSweeney's knows how you feel and they're rubbing it in with a mock-up want-ad for the most work intensive and least rewarding unpaid internship ever. Some highlights include:

* Candidate should be an expert in ALL forms of social media and have a MINIMUM of 50,000 Twitter followers

* Bachelor degrees in communication, new media AND political science required. Masters Degree in Filmmaking preferred. PH.D. in Journalism, a plus. Candidates with a law degree will be given special consideration.

I know what you're thinking: This parody doesn't seem to be that much of an exaggeration when it comes to finding work these days.
