The title, ‘Tells you everything you need to know about jobs from a ‘dead-end’ job’, was trending on Twitter on Wednesday, according to data from the analytics company Dataminedia.
The title came from an interview of a “younger woman” on a “job board” on the online job site Hiring, where she described the position as “very tough”.
A screenshot of the interview, which was shared on social media by an employee, showed that the woman had a job title of “administrative assistant”.
The interviewer also asked the young woman, “What is your job title?”
She replied, “Administrative assistant.
You know, this is the worst job, so it’s very hard.
It’s hard to find work here, so I have to work very hard.”
The interview was taken in January, when the job was advertised on the job board, and was published on Thursday.
Data from Datamidedia, which works to analyse the popularity of hashtags on Twitter, shows that the post has more than 4.7 million mentions since it was published.
“We can say that the title ‘tales from an dead-ends job’ is gaining traction in India,” said Datamiedia’s CEO, Pratap Sreenivasan.
“It’s getting more and more popular, which is why we’re seeing a rise in the number of people asking for this title.”
