JOB ADVERTISEMENT LOSES ITS GLOSS
When dozens of beauticians answered a job advertisement saying “ previous nail experience was preferable but not essential”, they thought they were the perfect fit.
But the role lost its gloss when it became clear the vacancy was at a builder’s yard in Stoke, England.
The builders needed someone to sift through piles of rubble to find things that could be sold on.
Many applicants talked about the experience they had and the different manicure techniques they could offer.
The advertisement was in the local newspaper.
