5472: Employer X.

A headhunter posted this actual job listing for an unnamed employer. It appears to be another desperately-seeking-help-plea from Saatchi & Saatchi X, the agency seemingly incapable of filling its open positions. “Inspired Innovative Creative Director-CPG Retail” is an oxymoron when considering the shop’s produced work depicted above and below. Also, is it lazy for recruiters to use services like and Creative Hotlist to find candidates for clients? Anonymous job listings are pretty annoying too, as the secret employers often ignore professional courtesies including official rejections.

The beautiful Midwest beckons an inspirational leader who puts the “create” back in Creative. Truly an opportunity to be innovative within a group of like-minded individuals adept at implementing world-class ideas focused on consumer marketing at the in-store level.
