Funniest Jobs on Craigslist

Over the past few weeks Shannon has been perusing the jobs section of Space Coast Craigslist in an effort to help out a family member in need of a full time gig. During the process of finding local jobs she's uncovered some real unique positions. Since it's a holiday weekend I thought I might share some of them to help you get the weekend kicked off right.

Note: The following jobs are actual jobs that were posted on the Space Coast Craigslist jobs board, no joke.

From the "TV Video Radio Jobs" Section
Position: Film Personalities for Social Art Movie
Job Description: and women to participate in a filmed interview regarding pornography and the state of today's society. This is not a porn, there will be absolutely no nudity or otherwise offensive content or behavior. Applicants should watch pornography...

Pay: $150/session
Hmmm, it's not a porno but you're required to watch pornos, interesting.

From the "TV Video Radio Jobs" Section
Position: Female Model
Job Description:
Internationally awarded photographer still needs some female models for artistic nudes. Experience is not necessary but helpful. Nice body and face is an asset. Great body and face is better, but not necessary.
Sounds like a Hooters lawsuit just waiting to happen ;)

From the "Web / Info Design" Section
Position: WEB DEVELOPMENT, DYNAMIC CONTENT, Partnership needed!
Job Description:
...looking for a young, talented, dedicated web programers with big goals...Serious college students and recent grads welcome to apply, but you must have a website displaying your work and skill-sets...

Compensation: Partnership, with goals of becoming a corporation

No joke, this guy (Leo Cortes) is looking for web designers and developers to work for free and maybe he'll incorporate the entity and then he might pay these developers. Where do I sign up?

From the "Web / Info Design" Section
Position: Jr. Web designers
Job Description: Posted in response to a job posting for junior web designers.
What is it with people who think Photoshop MASTERY and HTML/CSS MASTERY equals low pay?.

If you're looking for a student hire or really a junior web designer, which really isn't even a position, then don't ask for mastery of photoshop and html/css. Do you know how long it has taken me and other pros to become photoshop masters? 40-45K isn't bad for a student hire or beginning web person full time, but it doesn't pay for a master. C'mon, stop trying to pay nothing for something, this isn't ebay.

I thought this was a job board, not a job reply board.

Best Craigslist Job Titles
Here are some of the best job titles I came across, seriously, I can't believe people post this stuff.
  • LOW BUDGET, LARGE PROJECT (I'll pay you less than anyone else, guaranteed!)
  • Low Budget Adult websites needed (as opposed to high class adult web sites)
  • Web Log "Blog" - Wordpress Design Project (not to be confused with we blog)
  • Part Time (Seriously this is the title, just Part Time, nothing more.)
  • respond to responds (respond now)
  • Handyman Technician SCAM (scam is an acronym, and a bad one at that)
  • E-Cig Account Executives (virtual non-smokers need not apply)
  • Young, aggressive salespeople needed (the meaner the better)
  • Self-Generating Sales Pro Needed (translation: if you don't make any sales then be your own customer)
  • new company (but same old job)
  • NAIL TECH For a day (as opposed to Doctor for a day)

And the list goes on. No wonder is still in business. Have a happy 4th of July everyone.
