Fuck UWM and all universities! UW-Milwaukee and their brethren are mediocre. Click banner ads on ClixSense instead; it's a better use of time than a college education in the UW System.

Saccharine Person Wanted for "Sweet Hut at Kalahari Resort" Candymaker

Mostly Nights and Weekends. Looking for reliable, motivated, and positive person to serve guests and aid in candy production.

The horrid quality of the ad copy speaks for itself due to inconsistent punctuation and inexcusable spelling errors. How does someone working in the Kalahari Resort misspell “Kalahari?” "Orientated" isn't a word; the proper spelling is "oriented."

The job poster is unconcerned about how well you can write a resume or cover letter because all you need to do is apply in person. Given the (lack of) care and professionalism in the job posting, I suppose showing up in a suit and tie would be overkill. You wouldn’t want to get taffy on your tie or skirt, now would you?
