Hello, all! Here's my question: if you put out an ad looking to hire someone for your company with a lengthy description of what you're looking for, how you're paying, and other misc information, do you expect people who apply to read the entire ad? I'm looking for artists for my website project and in this ad I address key factors such as what kind of artwork I'm looking for, how I'm paying, how much I'm paying, what art work Ill need, revenue, and rights to the images. Overall, the ad is about 1 1/2 pages long, but this also includes a list of the images, so subtract that, it's not an unreasonably long ad. It has all the information an artist (I think) would look for in a paying job. It's pretty clear to me that the vast majority of the people did NOT read the ad because I have had people ask me questions regarding everything that was stated in the ad. I have people submitting their paintings (on canvases) for a *website* project. That's clearly not digital artwork, especially when the ad I posted is in the DIGITAL ARTWORK SECTION of the website. Smh. I have been told that it's not reasonable to ask people to read the ad and to shorten it and I had one person agree with me that the ad should have all the information up front so people know what they're getting into. Opinions? I'm just tired of people not following directions. If you can't read the ad, why would I assume you'd follow directions later? I even sent a packet of information to a potential artist with terminology AND the definition (it was literally two terms) and they later asked me to clarify those two terms. They didn't read the message!!
