TSA Advertising for Officers on Pizza Boxes

The legal job market may not be what it once was, but there is at least one industry so desperate for new talent that it's resorted to placing Help Wanted ads in an unusual place:

Yes, the Transportation Security Administration, renowned for enabling all of us to experience the glory of going barefoot in an airport, is looking for a few Washington, D.C.-area men and women "hungry" for a new gig. I'm with Kevin at Lowering the Bar; this isn't exactly confidence-inspiring. And the tag line -- "A career where X-Ray vision and federal benefits come standard" -- suggests to me that somebody should be fired.

The Washington Post reported on the ad campaign as well. Click on the link to enjoy comments such as the following:

Recruiting via a pizza box. How appropriate since the security measures performed by TSA are both cheesy and loaded with fat.

Detail shots of the boxes are available at Federal News Radio.
