Help Wanted: Bigfoot Research Assistant

In one of those “Damn, I already have a job!” moments of life, I have been alerted to the following job posting on (where else) Craig’s List. For all of my friends out there who say there are no jobs, I say you’re simply not looking hard enough. Behold, an apparently paid Bigfoot research position.

Actual Craig’s List posting:

Research Assistant (Whitehall – north country)


Date: 2012-08-22, 10:28AM EDT


 

title: Research Assistant — Cryptozoology

Req ID: 3466A2QZ

Job category: Research & Scientific & Nature

Sub-category: Research, Tracking, Documenting

Countries (State/Region): United States — New York, Adirondack Region

Location: Whitehall

Not for profit organization, located in Whitehall, NY is a high-energy, team-oriented research entity that is involved in the tracking, documenting, and study of cryptozoological creatures, with a deep interest in the study and search of bipedal primitive apes.

We seek an experienced researcher with a deep understanding of crypto zoology, primatology, with a good background with scientific research and interest in great apes. The ideal candidate must be able to work both autonomously and as part of a large team. The individual must also be able to solve problems creatively, communicate effectively, and collaborate well with project leaders and team members.

Duties and Functions:

• Develop actionable tracking program in designated geographic area.

• Investigate, document and interview individuals with reported Bigfoot sitings.

• Occasional travel to remote areas of Adirondacks including spending several nights in the wilderness, checking motion cameras, collecting hair and dung samples for laboratory analysis amongst other related activites.

PostingID: 3221877346

I must admit, I’m curious about the “Compensation based on experience” part. Honestly, the whole thing sounds way too good to be true, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out to be someone’s idea of a joke. But if this is true, then kudos to whomever gave these guys the grant. Whitehall is well-known for being a hotspot for Bigfoot sightings, and if I weren’t working right now, I might be looking into cheap 4-wheel drive vehicles.
