Survey says: would you want to be a water boy?
The coming of fall means the arrival of different autumn traditions: waiting in line for the first pumpkin spice latte of the season, dusting off your favorite fleece to wear by the campfire and, of course, the return of football. Whether you’re staying on top of NFL games, obsessing over your fantasy league or cheering on your alma mater every weekend, there’s no argument that football is an integral part of the fall season.
With that in mind, we polled job seekers on our site and asked them “What job would you most like to have at a football game?” Options ranged from “announcer” to “hot dog vendor” and after receiving over 1,000 votes, we learned just which gigs hourly job seekers would want to work on the grid iron. Survey results show:
– An overwhelming 40 percent of job seekers voted “ticket taker” as the job they’d most like to have at a football game. Collecting tickets does seem like a pretty chill job, especially since you get to interact with fellow fans and keep an eye on the game. And everyone loves the friend who can get discount tickets.
– The next two jobs with the highest votes were “cheerleader” and “mascot, with 16 and 14 percent of votes, respectively. Job seekers have spirit, yes they do, job seekers have spirit, how ’bout you?
– With eight percent of the votes, “water boy” was the least wanted job. Hey, not everyone is cut out to be a waterboy for an entire football team; Adam Sandler once taught us just how hard that job can be.
There are plenty of ways to contribute to the experience of a football game without actually playing on the field and these are just a few of them. Employers – what job would you most like to have at a football game? Let us know by commenting below or tweeting your response to @SnagajobWorks.
