Tired of the rat race? Ready to give your boss the ol’ what-for? Or, maybe there’s a recent college graduate living in your basement who just needs that first big break. Have we got a solution for you:
Pizza Hut is willing to pay you (or your adult child dependent) $50,000 to attend all 90 NCAA D-1 National Championship games throughout the 2016-17 season and post about it on social media. That’s it.
Sass aside, this is a real — albeit very selective — opportunity to travel the country and to develop a creative marketing portfolio. The Plano-headquartered company announced a new job position Monday, and your business card would read “Pizza Hut All-American.” Just kidding. You probably don’t get business cards. But, with $50K you can design your own on Vistaprint or something.
Applications are being accepted through Nov. 6, after which the pool will be narrowed down to three finalists who will have an opportunity to show off their skills in an OTJ try-out. Pizza Hut’s social media followers can ask candidates questions and watch through Facebook live streaming, and retired pro-basketball player Shane Battier — a member of Duke’s 2001 championship team — will help make the final decision.
The winner will attend everything from basketball, football and hockey games to bowling and beach volleyball matches. Take a look at the official rules and consider the application survey. Questions include “What’s your favorite sports movie?” and “What’s your favorite Pizza Hut pizza? Describe it in delicious, mouth-watering detail,” but they are not all softballs. You’ll also have a chance to construct a practice social media post and plan hypothetical activation of a $10,000 budget at the NCAA Women’s Bowling Championship. Ready, go.
Interested? You’ll need a polished resume, and a video submission won’t hurt either. Be sure to apply online before Nov. 6.
