Many moons ago I was graduating from College looking across the horizon for inspiration and direction. If the Weinermobile happened to pull up in that moment and offered me a job traveling across the country promoting Hot Dogs my life may have ended up very different. Instead I chose the safe route and moved onto graduate school but a voice deep down wishes I could have participated in an opportunity like the one below!

The Job

Oscar Meyer is hiring “HotDoggers” to navigate the Weinermobile throughout the United States. They are looking for College Seniors who will be graduating with a BA or BS in preferably public relations, journalism, communications, advertising, or marketing. The position will provide a competitive salary for the duration of one year. Applicants should be outgoing, creative, friendly and enthusiastic!

What does a day in the life of a “Hotdogger” look like?

The Hotdogger will represent Oscar Mayer as a brand ambassador through radio and television appearances, newspaper interviews, grocery retail and charity functions.

  • “meat” and greet people from coast to coast
  • Maintain company car (Oscar Mayer Wienermobile)

Why is this even a job?

Basic Breakdown

This seems like an awesome opportunity for personal growth and tremendous experience. Being able to travel around the country after college AND BE PAID would have been a dream come true for me! If you know any College Students Graduating this year, be sure to send them this article. My only request is if they are hired, they need to add Buffalo NY as a pit stop so I can get a selfie with the Weinermobile!
