|English term or phrase: booby-prize|
|Qual é a tradução de "booby-prize", como no texto abaixo?|
# Perhaps even more perverse, those agencies that do recruit are often phenomenally inept at it. Two-thirds of them, according to OPM, treat recruiting as a " collateral duty " -- that is, one for which no full-time staff (or staff member) is responsible. Usually this means that recruiting chores are handed out as a sort of booby-prize to those who lack the seniority or guile to avoid them. These hapless employees are sent forth thoroughly unprepared; more than half, says OPM, receive no training whatsoever for their mission. #
