As the pandemic begins to fade in the U.S. and commercial activity resumes, many Americans are on the hunt for new jobs–sometimes making career moves that might have seemed odd or outlandish to our 2019-era brains.
“After a year spent hunched over their MacBooks, enduring back-to-back Zooms in between sourdough loaves and Peloton rides, they are flipping the carefully arranged chessboards of their lives and deciding to risk it all,” Kevin Roose recently wrote for The New York Times. “Some are abandoning cushy and stable jobs to start a new business, turn a side hustle into a full-time gig, or finally work on that screenplay. Others are scoffing at their bosses’ return-to-office mandates and threatening to quit unless they’re allowed to work wherever and whenever they want.”
If any part of that sounds relatable to you, Orange County-based CBD Oracle may have the pivot you’ve been dreaming about. The company is seeking a part-time cannabis reviewer–and offering a salary of $30,000 for the flexible, work-from-home gig.
“Essentially, we’re giving you free weed to try. All you have to do is use that awesome penmanship you’ve been blessed with, give an honest opinion on the free pot we send you, and see the review published on our website with your name proudly stamped on it,” the job description notes.
While being a professional writer might help, a long list of published clips isn’t necessarily a requirement. CBD Oracle will review applications even from amateur cannabis enthusiasts.
“We’re looking for someone who acts as [the reader’s] loyal and trusted guide, taking them by the hand and walking them through the entire purchasing process,” the description notes.
Think that could be you? Applications are open through May 10.
