Conspiracy theorist posts job ad & is trolled by candidates on Twitter

Finding candidates that are open to work for embattled brands can be difficult. According to a recent CareerBuilder survey, jobseekers are less likely to apply to a company which is experiencing negative press – The Drum reports. Female jobseekers are more swayed – with 79% of them saying they wouldn’t consider a scandal-ridden company compared to 61% of men. Bearing this in mind, a somewhat controversial US media personality has put out a job advert via Twitter – however, it’s not having the reaction that he may have hoped for - UPROXX reports. Alex Jones, who runs news outlet Infowars, is looking for “talented and committed” candidates to join his ranks. Jones is cited in the media as a “conspiracy theorist” and is known for his controversial comments on the Illuminati, his passion for Trump and his assertions that Clinton and Obama are "demons" who "smell like sulfur” – Business Insider reports.
