There are some really cool jobs out there… and some really not-so-cool jobs.
Cool job: web developer for CHANGE design group, a design company in Chicago that works primarily with faith-based organizations and does a good job of it.
Not-so-cool job: PowerPoint Creation and Design position. Job requirements include the ability to make RAW graphics & symbols (Like triangles, squares, and circles) inside the presentation with a coherent work flow. The ability to integrate pictures into the frame and overlay text where appropriate.
Also on the not-so-cool list: jobs that subtly mention in the job descriptions things like “flash banner advertisements” or “HTML emails” (aka spam emails….)
Don’t worry, I’m using the discernment skills that I learned from my college education and not applying for the not-so-cool jobs…
