Hiring in a post-COVID world can be tricky for smaller companies. The pandemic's impact on the workplace can still be felt in some places today and many businesses are still rebounding from the effects of the staff shortage.

Standing out from the rest...

One company found a clever way to recruit new hires and the strategy is simple: be honest... be brutally honest.

The posting is actually quite hilarious and can be found on Indeed.com for a chiropractor. The posting begins with a captivating intro:

How ‘bout we skip right ahead to the center of the tootsie-pop? Our small business is located in Nampa, ID. We are biased — but we are pretty sure we are the coolest place to work for, ever.

No, seriously, that's literally the first three sentences of the job posting... and it only gets better. The very first bullet point immediately pokes fun at the hourly wage albeit in a fun and clever way:

The pay sucks. Meaning, you won’t get rich at this job. The pay is $15/hour. It can be some extra spending money, for sure. However, if you are seeking a job to support a household then this is no longer the 'coolest' part-time admin job ever, it is now the 'suckiest' part-time admin job ever.

That's right - the employer flat-out lets you know that the pay for this job "sucks." If this doesn't make this the greatest job posting ever, surely the rest of their posting will. It's straightforward and honestly makes us wonder what an application should look like in Idaho.
