The Worst Job in Town


In a bid to hire a brilliant Digital Producer, one digital agency in Australia has taken a unique approach, by telling it like it is.. “the worst job in town,” in an “office that looks terrible” with staff “that don’t wash,” and “paying below market” value…

We’ve covered reverse psychology in the past (I’m generally pretty useless, is a great example of this) but never from an employer’s perspective. Read the Digital Producer Advert in full here…


Julien Viard, who posted the ad says “When I look at ads I find that they oversell jobs, very few give actual insight into what the job is. So I decided to go for the complete opposite,”

Not the most conventional of online adverts, but it would be interesting to see how many applications Viard actually got for this. We’ll try and find out.
