Pokemon Go-Based Part-Time Job Ad Becomes Viral

A Reddit user discovered a quirky part-time job on his Facebook feed: a Pokemon Go “lure manager.”

The job requires that applicants be an “expert” in the game, which would seem to be another way of saying that they are level 10 or higher in Pokemon Go.

The ad for the position also says that applicants “must be tech savvy” and have an Android phone. In addition, the hiring company is looking for someone who is “confident,” “a team player,” and who has “excellent management skills.”

It should be noted that the ad claims to be looking for players located in the Manila metro area, which puts you out of luck if you don’t live in the Philippines.

The ad goes on to say that applicants must be open to working on weekends, and must have some schedule flexibility in terms of hours.

They must understand the app inside and out, which includes making in-app purchases.

Lastly, applicants must be at least 20 years old, and oddly enough, either be attending college or have a college degree.

It is unclear as to whether the ad is for a legitimate position, but it’s certainly not out of the question.

The ad itself doesn’t appear poorly designed, with a purple background and superimposed Pokeballs, although it skimps on details on the actual position itself.

Pokemon Go isn’t as popular as it was initially, but it still appears to be popular enough for unique opportunities involving the app.
