Accountants apply for McDonalds jobs

Accountants, bankers and architects feature prominently among the applicants
for a new McDonalds branch in Ireland, the Independent reported.

Professionals are chasing ‘McJobs’ in Ennis, County Clare, where
unemployment has jumped by 73% over the past year.

Franchisee Kieran McDermott said he had to do a double-take on some of the
CVs he received. He was swamped with 500 applications in just 10 days, forcing
him to take down the ‘now hiring’ banner.

The situation could be repeated across Europe. McDonalds is one of the few
employers still hiring, with plans to open a further 240 outlets in Europe.
