How not to recruit engineers

Today, this gem of an advertisement graced the sidebar of my Facebook page:

"Rejected by Google? Urbancode is your perfect rebound opportunities"

Really? I wonder what kind of engineer this company wants. The kind with the same skills, aptitudes, and background that Google wants? If so, they’ll get only the ones Google turns down. And if this company is looking for different assets than Google, then its ideal candidate(s) may not have been interested in working for Google in the first place. Either way, this ad will not bring in the candidates this company wants.
