Scrooge-like advert for interns at publisher 'tongue in cheek'

Posted at 1:45PM Sunday 16 Dec 2012

Interns are familiar with operating at the more unpleasant end of the jobs market, but one advertisement posted yesterday had a particularly Dickensian feel.

Dalkey Archive Press is on the hunt for staff and interns at its London office. Candidates, it warned, must not "have any other commitments (personal or professional) that will interfere with their work at the press (family obligations, degrees to be finished, holidays to be taken, weddings to attend in Rio, etc)".
