Well done, I'm well beyond that. It seems you kinda missed the point.

I work for a top 40 company that gets the SOME of the best graduates into their internship programs. They often dont get the candidates they want because other top companies are getting them first. I've also worked for consulting houses that admit that they get the 'dregs' in terms of graduates because all the best ones are snapped up by the big corporates.

So again, what's so special about this ad and this workplace? Sounds like some small insurance house that somehow thinks it should be able to secure top candidates and probably pay them poorly. i.e. this is has to be a joke.

It’s a paradoxical advert. As a top graduate of a top SA university, I would never even consider applying to an advert, the companies would always find me. :p You fail their test just by applying.

Ja the top-end companies pay the most bucks and offer the best benefits. More and more in SA, talent isn't just floating around desperate for a job offer. Companies have to differentiate to get that talent. Nothing at all against the job poster doing their job, but some companies are just deluded in the way they recruit.

If their edge is pay, it is stupid to not show it off. Many of the headhunters who contact me these days put the expected compensation in the subject line - I’m not sure how I feel about that, but it definitely does reduce unnecessary communication.

Agreed, they would have printed the minimum qualified salary in BIG BOLD lettering if they meant business.

I think their edge is to find a desperate qualified individual and then low ball this individual who is not experienced in job hunting yet.

Maximum education for minimum pay.
