Vampire Sherpas Need Only Apply

Remember when you were a young adult and a "part-time job" meant working Mondays and Wednesdays? Or working only on the weekend? Well, no more.

Personally, I am looking for full-time employment myself, and I came across this ad this morning that caught my attention. (The Ottawa Citizen is hiring again.) Not that I was interested in this particular job.

It seems this ad is fit for a person with no life, essentially a vampire sherpa -- with "Key boarding proficiency". Surely they mean keyboarding? Part-time nowadays means working 7 days a week at 4am and 9pm. Wow!

I quote the job description at length in case anyone else is interested. (P.S.: Be sure to drink plenty of Vitamin D fortified milk.)



The customer service representative will effectively handle administration and distribution duties and liaison with our Contact Centre via email and telephone.

The successful candidate will have a minimum of 3 years experience in a CUSTOMER SERVICE setting and possess excellent communication skills, both oral and written English. Key boarding proficiency is essential.

The individual will be working in a dynamic environment

The individual will be able to work in a dynamic environment and is available to work varied shifts 7 days a week, between the hours of 4 a.m. and 9 p.m.

In order to be considered for the position, resumes must be received by the Human Resources Department, quoting job #07-029 by 5:00 p.m. Friday, March 16, 2007:

The Ottawa Citizen
