‘Great job meme’ shows that jobs are not what they seem
Denver jobs are often the stuff of fantasy, but a new job ad posted to Reddit has captured the attention of data analysts who say the job posting isn’t really a job at all.
According to the ad, the “Great Job Meme” is “a job that has been on Reddit for years.”
The ad says the job is for a “Data Analyst in the Denver metro area.”
The job description doesn’t mention that it’s “an administrative position.”
The job posting has garnered nearly 1,300 comments and hundreds of likes since it was posted Wednesday.
One person commented that the job was “very appealing” and that they would be applying to the position.
But others criticized the ad as fake, with many saying that the posting is just a marketing stunt and that it was just a way to advertise the job in a viral video.
The ad is the second time in less than a week that Reddit has featured a job ad for an administrative position.
The first time came in April, when the company debuted a job posting for a sales executive.
A spokesman for Reddit did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
