How not to find great employees

I won’t name any names, but I came across a job posting which required two rather highly sought-after skills in today’s market, neither of which is particularly common. They were very specific about what a great job it was, how you would be worked like a dog, and how they were only interested in people with previous experience.

Then they laid out this lovely gem (emphasis added):

We know we’re asking a lot and I’m positive we won’t make it worth your while financially if you have this highly specific skillset.

Yep, that’s what I always look for in a job: Hard work, previous experiance reqiured and you’ll be able to find better pay just about anywhere else.
