Toronto company is hiring a Pokemon Go expert
If you want to make some extra cash this summer and beef up your Pokedex, you should probably check out this job posting from folks at Woodbine Entertainment Group.
Yes, the Etobicoke-based racetrack is hiring a Pokemon Go Administrator to drop lures at its (wait for it) Pokemon Go-themed job fair - that's a slightly less cringe-inducing way to attract hip, young employees than when this Microsoft recruiter referred to millennials as "bae interns."
The Woodbine Entertainment Group doesn't seem to care about your qualifications. "We are looking for people who can appreciate innovation and who can reflect WEG 's values," reads the job description. "Simply submit your resume and a brief paragraph stating why you would 'Be All In!' as our Pokemon Go Administrator!"
And if you're interested, the job fair is happening on Sunday, August 21 from noon to 4 p.m.

Did you ever think you would be asked to play Pokemon Go at work??
Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG) seeks a Pokemon Go Administrator to work at an exciting and innovative event on Sunday August 21st, 2016. WEG will be holding a Pokemon Go job fair throughout the day.
At Woodbine Racetrack we have 3 PokeStops as well as 1 Pokemon Training gym. The idea is for job seekers to come meet the WEG Recruitment team, get familiar with some of our departments and drop off a resume. All the while taking advantage of wild Pokemon appearing from the Pokemon Lures that will be set throughout the job fair.
The Pokemon Go Administrator will be tasked with setting off lures at our PokeStops every half hour from beginning to the end of the event.
As the lures will attract crowds of non-job seekers, the Pokemon Go Administrator will also be responsible for aiding with other duties as they relate to the day's event.
The event details are as follows:
When: Sunday August 21, 2016 - 12pm - 4pm
Where: Woodbine Racetrack - 555 Rexdale Boulevard, Etobicoke ON, M9W 5L2
Inside the Walking Ring - Right in front of the Avelino Gomez statue (A PokeStop!)
Event Details: On site, job seekers will get to meet our Recruitment Team, Hospitality Department, Security Department and Customer Service Department. Job seekers from all industries and backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
We don't care what your background is, or what your resume says. We are looking for people who can appreciate innovation and who can reflect WEG 's values. Simply submit your resume and a brief paragraph stating why you would 'Be All In!' as our Pokemon Go Administrator!
Woodbine Entertainment Group is committed to supporting an inclusive, barrier- free recruitment and selection process in a work environment where all employees feel valued, respected and supported.
If you are contacted by a member of our team, please advise if you require any accommodation with respect to WEG's recruitment, selection and or/assessment process used to ensure you have access to a fair and equitable process.
