Unrealistic Job Advert #7

This one was emailed to me by a recruitment company that really ought to know better:

[T]he role would require the following experience:

• Degree/Diploma in Engineering.

• Should possess sound knowledge in process engineering, plant operation, production, maintenance, planning and multi-disciplinary coordination in a wide cross-cultural working environment.

• Good Exposure to multi discipline activities (Piping, Process, Structural, Instrumentation etc.)

• Work independently and handle multi tasks or projects.

• Planning & Presentation skills.

So, working in Turkmenistan, degree and 10 years’ international experience required, must be be able to handle projects independently and demonstrate team leadership skills, and we’ll pay you $400 per day worked.
