Are you a bankruptcy attorney who needs to empathize more with your clients — e.g., by declaring bankruptcy yourself? Check out this job posting — which won’t be our Job of the Week anytime soon — courtesy of that gold mine of employment opportunities, Craigslist:
Bankruptcy Attorney Position (Dallas)
Small Consumer Bankruptcy firm in Dallas looking for new associate attorney. 50-60 Hours per week, with some travel to Fort Worth required. Salary: $40,000.
If “travel to Fort Worth” is required, you need to add another zero to that salary. This is not the kind of income that will help you pay off massive educational debt (non-dischargeable in bankruptcy, at least for now).
But wait, there’s more….
What? You want health insurance? What do you think this is — Starbucks?
No health insurance or other benefits. Please email cover letter and resume.
Quipped our tipster: “Hopefully a computer, desk, and chair aren’t considered ‘benefits.’”
Could this ad be a sign that the job market is improving? Let’s hope so.
