ASIO seeks executive to deliver curses in “Canaberra” [sic] ?

By johnboy - 18 May 2009 23

ASIO has long been suspected of dabbling in the dark arts but there was an interesting job advertised last week which seems to confirm suspicions.

    Job Title: Counter Terrorism Intelligence Training Program
    Job Type: Ongoing, Full-time
    Salary: $94,040 – $101,509
    Location: ASIO Central Office, Canaberra | ACT [sic]
    Agency Classification: ASIO Executive Officer Grade 1

    To make an effective contribution to the Program, you will need to be adaptable, able to solve no-notice problems overseas, and have the necessary research skills to develop and deliver curses within specific deadlines.

(emphasis mine)

We suppose it’s nice to think our pagan friends have such a great career opportunity opening up.

Just in case it goes missing here’s a screen shot of the whole shebang:

Good lord that’s one of the best posts I’ve ever written. They are also under your bed monitoring your sex patterns I hear.

Now that would be a boring job… I’m not getting any nasty at the moment :-\

Written = read, that was a bit of a fail.

Funny and all, but a couple of typos in a job ad doesn’t seem to me to be news.

Funny if its in a job ad for Mc Donalds.

Embarassing if its authored by the same people who read your email and listen to your phone calls.

Alarming if its a failure of process for something as simple as a job ad in a process orientated org like Gov.

These people also write warrants…

When it comes to typos in the Canberra Times, I’ve become convinced that someone there is using dictation software to write their articles. It seems at least once a month I come across a wrong word that seems to be a phonetic error rather than spelling.

For example: “The High Caughts ruling…”

I stopped taking The Canberra Times seriously when they spelt the word Gallipoli wrong in a headline a few months ago.

of course, brain outstripping fingers with typographical puns – meant ‘crucified’…
