There are very few times you come across a job posting that sounds like it was made just for you. If you’re a fan of The Office and you have experience binging TV and sitting for long periods, even you can find your perfect job. Dish is looking to hire someone to watch 15 hours of The Office, and we’ve got all the details.
“It seems like yesterday Michael Scott hit Meredith with his car, and Jim put Andy’s phone in the ceiling,” satellite company Dish said in its job opening. “Believe it or not, The Office has been around for 15 years this March. To celebrate its anniversary, USDish.com is teaming up with one die-hard fan to watch 15 hours of The Office for $1,000.”
Fifteen hours of the hit NBC show starring Steve Carell, Jenna Fischer, and John Krasinski will work out to roughly 45 episodes, and you’ll have nine days to complete the requirements. And yes, this is a real job that Dish promised “isn’t a case of Scott’s tots.”
“The goal is to help us understand how often sitcoms repeat popular tropes,” Dish said. “We’ll provide you with general guidelines to track your experience, but in true Kelly Kapoor fashion, we also want you to share your unfiltered opinions and reactions on social media.”
Along with getting paid $1000, the person chosen for the role will also receive a bundle of The Office swag and a Netflix gift card. OH, and the job is remote, which means you can watch in the comfort of your own home, sans pants or not. However, this position is only available to U.S residents.
To apply, applicants need to answer why they’re the biggest fan of The Office in the entire world in 300 words or more. Dish encourages applicants to add a video submission to their application “to boost chances,” and completed forms need to be in before the March 16 deadline. All applications should be submitted through the usdish.com website.
If this sounds like your dream job, good luck!
