‘Forbes Columnist’ Needs Willing Slave

This was sent to us by Howard Stier just before it was flagged for removal.

Let’s remember a “Forbes Columnist” is actually a former True/Slant blogger.

I am seeking talented, well-trained, hard-working, and intrepid journalists, either in or fresh out of Journalism school, or equivalent, who know how to write and research on very tight deadlines. Knowledge of PhotoShop, HTML, Search Engine Optimization, WordPress, public policy issues and financial markets are all a plus, but these are not requirements. You can start immediately and will need to work at least 15 hours a week out of my Hancock Park office.

This is a huge opportunity to add an impressive work credential to your resume and could lead to a paid position.

Please send resume and samples of work.

We’d also like an employee who works for free! Do our blogging homework for us! C’mon…be cool.

But seriously, Forbes, this is not good for your brand.
