Dr Mumbo

Don’t call us…

Dr Mumbo was delighted to hear that Mumbrella had a satisfied customer after Liquid Ideas used the site’s free job board to advertise a vacancy to join the PR agency’s team in Alexandria.

But agency boss Stuart Gregor was slightly surprised to get this response from one applicant:  

Good morning, 

Actually i was looking to apply for this position but it sounds like a company that want your blood and don’t want to pay for it.

 As if I am gonna get off on wanky media meetings and clients.

Of course their is no mention of money and what bonuses their is for acheiving staff apart from “being loved”.

 I will stick to my 9-5 job in healthcare. How dare you put us down. We turn over more $ than you wankers.”

 Regards, a non-Eastern suburbs job seeker

Showing admirable restraint, Gregor replied: “Thanks for your email, it was a revelation, I am still reeling – I am sure you will have a long and successful career in public relations and wish you well on your journey.”
