A job at $70K and help fight HIV in Georgia

Add this share

It’s no secret that Georgia’s fight against HIV is just a mess of underfunded messiness. And your unemployed ass needs a job. Why not pair the two together and pick up a cool $70K a year?

Here’s your chance. The Georgia Department of Public Health is hiring an epidemiologist in its HIV unit. You need a Masters degree in public health or a “closely related field.” No word on whether being a gay slut counts as related. But before you dust off your cover email and hit send, we give our tips on how to address their preferred qualifications.

Experience in evaluating HIV/AIDS programs at state and local levels. Reviewed the process of getting an HIV test at Positive Impact or AID Atlanta on Yelp? You’re in.

Experience in implementing strategies and innovative programs. Opened, unwrapped and rolled a condom on with lube on your hands? In the dark? Points for you.

Experience developing and implementing a quality assurance system(s). What’s your secret for overcoming beer goggles at last call? A better system than slamming the door when a trick arrives who looks nothing like his profile pic? Extra credit.

Experience with building and monitoring database systems. Can you simultaneously cruise Grindr, Scruff and Jack’d while also checking Manhunt? You get an interview.

Hurry. You’ve got until Thursday to apply.
