Ernest Shackleton got 3,000 Applicants for this Job Posting

I'm having a great time at the Founders Institute event tonight in Seattle. Really enjoyed this image that Dan Fine included in his presentation, of an advertisement that Ernest Shackleton posted for explorers for his ship. It read:
"Men wanted for hazardous journey.  Small wages.  Bitter Cold.  Long months of complete darkness.  Constant danger.  Safe return doubtful.  Honour and recognition in case of success."


I LOVE that!  Remind me to edit our TeachStreet job descriptions going forward :-)
