You'll Need 10 Years Of Experience To Be A Tea Lady At This Big Four Firm In Malaysia

"EY is on another level."

In today's competitive job market, many applicants face the challenge of not having enough years of work experience for a particular role

While it is an efficient way of narrowing down applicants and often necessary due to the nature of the work, some job listings are arguably more unreasonable than others.

On 28 May, a netizen took to Twitter to share a discovery on JobStreet.com that she felt was "on another level".

According to the listing, candidates are also required to have a "customer-oriented personality", be proficient in Bahasa Malaysia and English, as well as be able to work "under minimal supervision".
