Friday Fun: Job Description Mad Libs(R)

Sometimes I’m really surprised by how a company’s job description can totally alienate or ignore its audience, be redundant, contain silly mistakes/typos/punctuation mistakes, and ultimately sound ridiculous.  So I thought it would be fun to TRY to make an existing job description even more ridiculous by turning it into that famously fun game of entering random words, fill-in-the-blank style.  So grab a coworker, friend, or better yet someone looking for a process or analyst job and ask them to provide you with the answers.  Have fun and feel free to post your funniest lines in the comments! Or just read through for a laugh. Happy Friday!
