    This company will go under in less than a year. Since these ads are meant for journalists, you would think the writer of the ad would cut out all the buzz words and get right to the point.

    It's a JJobs posting. You can't contact them through that site either.

    Not only is the ad confusing, but this outfit has the worst name since "The Shawshank Redemption."

    School of the Legends? Really? Sounds like it was created by the manager of a Chinese buffet.
