|That Hotdog is about to do bad things to that cow.|
Boston Globe - Oscar Meyer is taking resumes until the end of January for one-year spots as Hotdoggers. As an official company ambassador, you'll set up, publicize, and attend promotional and charity events in the oh-so-stylin' Wienermobile. And you may need to do radio interviews or make television appearances. What are they looking for? First, it helps to have an upbeat, bubbly personality. They'd also prefer that you have a BA or BS in communications, PR, journalism, advertising, marketing. But if you really think you're Hotdogger material they'll consider other majors. If you get hired, the gig comes with a "competitive'' salary (What does this mean? Are there legions of other Hotdoggers out there who might be making more or less than Oscar Meyer pays?), expenses, benefits, and clothing. They send you to Hot Dog High in lovely Madison, Wis., for training on Oscar Meyer's products, how to run your own PR operation, and, most importantly, how to drive the Wienermobile.
You're kidding yourself if you don't think I applied as soon as I saw this. I may not be in PR, but I have a blog and know how to twitter, that's gotta count, right? Who needs a marketing degree, I'm pretty sure the gigantic hotdog shaped car does the trick on that front, it's all personality from there.
I'd be perfect for the job, just live, eat, and breathe Oscar Meyer. I'd be ruthless too, parking right in front of ice cream trucks to block them out, shelling out hotdogs and bologna on hot summer days, free ketchup and mustard for everyone. I'd be the hero of the neighborhood.
The only real downside I see is trying to park this thing inconspicuously during your down time. Like there's just no way you can roll up to shop for groceries or hit you local bar in this thing. You'd be mobbed like a celebrity in seconds, when all you want is to blow off a little steam and relax. Wienermobile drivers are people too, they don't always want to be in the spot light.
