Imagine this scenario.
Things are not going well... Standards are rotting away. A big fish has entered your small pond and is doing its best to poach your fellas away. So you put out an ad in your own newspaper seeking fresh talent to arrest ...

And so you put out this ad. An ad? You call this an ad? More like a grubby sticker pinned to a garbage bin.
How can this be allowed to happen?
Look at the amount of mistakes in this ad guys. It was published in February, when TOI first started feeling out people in the Herald.
Tell us guys, how can a newspaper call for candidates with a command over the English language, when they word the sentence this way?
"Candidates should be a graduates in any stream with a thorough knowledge of correct English"
"CORRECT ENGLISH"????? And "a graduates"?
Who drafted this ad? Raul?

Anon 2: Only when the management decides to reform itself first. The rest will fall in place automatically.

Does anyone know if the Dempo's have hired the widow of one of their journos? (PP had highlighted this earlier)

These advertisiments are the work of Raul or Savio Fernandes. They both use kitchen Konkani or Santacruz Konkani. No wonder the candidate has to know Marathi and Konkani. Raul's use of Konkani bad words have to be heard to be beleived. He is worst than "Mummy" when he flies the handle.

By the way, Human Resources (HR) is the new word for Personnel Manager and both mean the same. So one uses the old or the new and not both as used in the ad.

The Reporter does not need to know the principles of journalism. All he needs to know is how to cook up a story. This is a typical Choppy sentence.

The sub must have a knowledge of the "world around" and not necessarily knowledge of Goa.

No wonder the Herald is the Herald with Ashwin, Sergio or Joel.

Last Anon:
I thought Raul's furniture came from the philippines.

Are you a filipino? Are you recruiting carpenters for your filipino operations?

Or is there a vacancy in that illegal dance floor, near that KTC, Panaji?
