One of my favorite blogs, Craigslist Curmudgeon, highlights some of the really horrible writing job listings on Craigslist. He has branched out and also includes other types of ad now, as well.
Something I have repeatedly seen highlighted in his blog, as well as listed as legit jobs - *gag* on job sites are ads seeking writers to write term papers and college entrance essays. Some have even requested writers to do all of their homework.
The worst part of it is that there really are people who will take these 'jobs'. They justify it by saying they are just trying to make a buck or they are just 'helping' someone out.
Let's hope, when in an emergency, they get help from someone who earned their way there rather than got 'helped' there.
What do YOU think of this new trend?
