Subject-matter experts need not apply

If you’re looking for a job as a writer for Yahoo! Style, don’t worry if you know nothing about style, fashion, or clothing. It’s not a prerequisite for a job writing about style, fashion, and clothing. Need proof? Consider this photo caption from the popular Yahoo! site:

emb rose 1

That caption is an attempt to describe this picture of Mr. Renner:

emb rose pic

If you identified the location of the rose as “below the breast pocket” and not on the lapel, you’re overqualified for a writing job.
