Would you consider working for this guy?

I --assume-- it's a guy. Found this on craigslist:

im needing 2 assication that can assication me with take photo's, n be able to be trained to take photo's on there own. u will be respotive to help with getting session seat up n take down, also be a 2 photography for session that need it. i do session, events n weddings all over the DFW area. u will need to traval, have ur own camera n tripod u will be pay by experience only. beginnings are welcome... please call or text me at XXX-XXX-XXXX. n iwill get back to with a application n when u could start.

End direct quote, with phone number redacted.

Seriously, is this person even capable of handling something other than a point-and-shoot camera?

And, yes, they were listed under "photographer assication," whatever that means.

My guess is non native english speaker who didn't have the sense to have someone who is write the ad for him. Might be a perfectly legit company/individual with no business or PR sense. Or it's a Nigerian scam.

I've considered English as second language. Or, it's quite possible it was sent from a phone that has "issues" with autocorrect.
