I still peruse craigslist job listings searching for more at-home income possibilities. Yes. I know. When do I think I will fit that into my already over-crammed life?
So in my perusal of craigslist jobs, I came accross this ad. Here are the basics of the listing:
BookKeeper Extraordinaire-No Health Benefits (West County)
1) You know QuickBooks incredibly well
2) You have reconciled Quickbooks on a daily/weekly basis with multiple accounts
3) You are well organized.
4) You allow NOTHING to fall through the cracks
2) Your favourite film character and why
This employer is looking for an incredibly valuable employee. He/she wants someone who is trained and experienced in the use of a somewhat complex bookkeeping/accounting software application. The employer is also looking for a perfectionist who never makes mistakes. He/she wants someone to help keep the business organized. And, on top of that, he/she apparently wants someone with a personality since the applicant is asked to submit a favorite film character with the reasons why. Perhaps this is requested because the employer wants the applicant to have writing skills, too.
One would think that this valuable employee would be worth a lot to the prospective employer with all that is being asked. The pay scale listed for this perfect bookkeeper who never makes mistakes, who has a personality and writing skills–$12 – $15 an hour! That apparently is the going rate for perfection these days. Oh, and don’t forget, Perfection should not expect health benefits either!
