Ran across this on the Department Intranet:
- Notice of Job Opportunity - Supervisor, Marketing and Recruiting:
It seems Human Resources is recruiting for a white shirt (lieutenant preferred) to be responsible for the new recruiting push in late 2013. They want the usual resume, letters of recommendation, etc.
They also want a "mock flyer" identifying "key themes" in recruiting potential applicants. It doesn't have to be professionally done, or even done by the applicant. It just has to have your ideas.
First of all, in these times of having every body possible on the street, wouldn't it make sense to farm this out to a firm of professionals?
Second, a nice cushy spot like this - you're telling us the Department doesn't already have someone measured up for this job? For all you new guys/gals or outsiders reading, the way it usually runs is this:
- create a spot;
- list the qualifications of the pre-selected candidate;
- put out a job notice so people apply;
- pick the pre-selected person;
- laugh at everyone who thought it was legit
As an added bonus, you can take all the "mock flyers" that people submitted and see if there are any ideas worthy of stealing. After all, the applications are now owned by the Department, along with everything that was attached.
In the meantime, we have a lot of talented readers. If you have a graphic that you think might be worthy of submitting for a mock recruiting poster, we'd like to see it and if funny enough, publish some of the better ones. It's like a City Sticker contest for cops!
Chalkie references always welcome.
