“The ideal applicant takes great pride in doing as little as possible at any cost and possesses an enviable capability of daydreaming of sunnier days.
“Having no interest whatsoever in interacting with others and no ability at all to multitask is beneficial but not a requirement.
“Previous experience of sleeping at your workplace is highly appreciated, but with the right mindset we believe that you can be a successful candidate regardless of your past working experience.”
Sounds kinda dreamy right?
