‘Submit your CV, we are hiring’ – New York city looking for rat killing expert, pay at N74m(details)
These days, New York City seems to be more of a rat sanctuary than a rat race.
A bachelor’s degree and a “general aura of badassery” are required for applicants, according to the humorous job description spotted by the New York Post.
In order to help get rid of the 18 million rats that live there, New York City is searching for a top-tier exterminator.
A job listing for a rodent exterminator suggests that New York City is currently more of a rat sanctuary than a rat race.
According to estimates from 2014, there were two rats for every person living in New York, which means that the current vermin population is close to 18 million.
Applicants will need a bachelor’s degree and a “general aura of badassery”, according to the amusing listing seen by NewYork post.
A “virulent vehemence for vermin” and the “drive, determination, and killer instinct needed to fight the real enemy – New York City’s relentless rat population” are also desirable qualities that anybody interested in the vacancy should possess.
The ad continued: “Cunning, voracious, and prolific, New York City’s rats are legendary for their survival skills, but they don’t run this city – we do.” At last month’s bill signing, Mayor Eric Adams delivered a purposeful message when he said: “I’ve made it clear I hate rats, and we’re gonna kill some rats. We’re putting a dent in our rodent problem.”
The Sanitation Department also sells $48 t-shirts bearing the slogan:
“The rats don’t run this city. We do.” The move is to generate funds, according to Washington posts. Here is a link to apply for the job.
