Well, at least they’re unique.If you want to work for Mellen Law Firm in California, you better bring your “A” game to the first day of auditions, er, we mean hiring.
In a Craigslist ad, first posted by Above The Law, Mellen tells lawyers to come to hiring days with their laptops, where they will be given assignments to complete and whoever does the best wins.
“Each day the candidate with the weakest work product will be cut until one candidate remains. This process will take one or two weeks until the final candidate is offered on-going employment. If you have seen reality television shows where contestants are cut from episode to episode such as Top Chef, Top Shot or Project Runway — it will be like this. Do you have what it takes to be Top Associate?”
So basically, you fight for the death — symbolic death of course — on the off chance you’ll actually win and reap the rewards. Sounds a bit like the “Hunger Games” trilogy to us.
Don’t worry, you’ll get paid $20 per hour for the time you spend on these assignments and the actual pay is $4,000 per month.
And with legal services unemployment the way that it is, we wouldn’t be surprised if Mellen was flooded with applications.
