Unemployed? Love Shark Week?
Well, then we have the job for you.
The Discovery Channel is looking for their first ever Chief Shark Officer (CSO)
, who will preside over Shark Week.
Requirements for this unique position are that applicants "must enjoy exotic waterfront locations, buff bodies in bathing suits and having the bejesus scared out of you. Looking delicious in a wet suit is a plus. Sense of humor required."
Among your duties as CSO will be swimming with sharks, who, as you probably remember from Shark Week, can be a bit nasty at times.
The CSO position doesn't offer much in pay; however, you will be attending Shark Week premiere parties, which the Discovery Channel promises will be "celebrity"-filled affairs.
No need to oversell, Discovery. You had us at "Shark Week."
