Default Can I post a job posting here?

I am currently looking at a job posting, which is for an internship position. Am I allowed to discuss it here? It just seems to have very ridiculous requirements

Yeah, but you might want to remove identifying information if you are seriously considering applying.

I am def not applying lol. I'm not sure if I am missing something.

They want an intern to fly out to des moines on their own dime? Also they're looking for 3.8+ gpa'ers.

Like I must be missing something.

why not make the location in iowa instead of seattle or pa? or maybe thats what theyre hinting at...not sure. Just seems forced travel without pay is unusual.

Do you mind elaborating? From my short experience, they are regarded highly.

Since it's nearly 100% onsite, maybe they mean they aren't going to pay for your travel to or stay in Des Moines during the summer. But, if you had to fly back to the home office, maybe they'd pay for that? They can't not pay you for work travel. But, the wording is definitely not clear on that.

I remember when I was a student, they always had a ton of open positions. They also over work their people from what I heard.

No where in the post, that suggests candidates pay for their travels for interview.

You're probably "not surprised" because you don't understand that each practice of Milliman does all of their hiring activity independently from every other practice of Milliman.

"No travel or accommodation assistance will be provided."
seems pretty suggestive to me...

They are mostly "bad" from my experiences.

My condolences on working for a decent practice.
