Given the extreme similarities in both (needing to find the right person) I thought I would show you a funny way to write the perfect job ad - whether the vacancy is for a candidate, or partner!
Prince Charming need apply...
I am a privately-owned person established since 1982, dominating the field of looking for long lasting love and my soul mate! Conveniently located at Norman Park, I love innovation, thinking outside the square and am very passionate about finding true happiness. Due to a recent resignation, I am now seeking a superstar to join my team of two in pursuit of happily ever after.
As my new Soul Mate, you will be focused on:
Providing emotional support for me and my son (aged 7) in the preparation, implementation and management of new love.
Producing accurate information about yourself, life goals, feelings and plans for the future to ensure seamless communication.
Liaising with family and friends to ensure you maintain strong relationships.
Ensuring romance processes are followed and implemented correctly and accurately.
The person I know will hit the ground running and will experience success in this relationship will have:
At least 3 – 4 years' experience in a relationship or marriage where you’ve learnt from your mistakes.
Young kid or kids highly desirable, or interest in creating some.
Sound knowledge of your life goals combined with sound relationship skills.
A team focus, the better we work together, the better our outcomes!
The natural ability to communicate.
A desire to develop professionally and grow with our team and eventually into marriage!
Have high attention to me and a flair for romance!
But most importantly my son must love you and vice versa, I am a package deal!!!!!
In return for your commitment, love and unwavering affection, you will receive the following:
My cracking sense of humour
A professional woman with a strong career, not every dinner has to be on you!
A true friend
A shared love of sports, though quite uncoordinated. I can’t run, but I can throw a ball.
A fun, exciting and long-lasting relationship!
Joining us means you have a great home to go to everyday, you will continue to learn and grow in our relationship and you will be recognised and rewarded for your hard work! If you think you tick the boxes please apply below or swipe right!
The basis of all good advertising is that you are clear about the opportunity, the requirements, expectations and WIIFM (what's in it for me)! Being upfront leaves little room for the surprise 'pay increase chat' or 'unforeseen baby conversations'.
