Oscar Mayer is also looking for some specific personality traits.The job calls for "an appetite for adventure, a friendly personality, and boundless enthusiasm."
Applicants are encouraged to have a college degree.Specifically, they're looking for people with a BA or BS in public relations, journalism, communication, advertising, or marketing – although, if you had a different major and really want to pursue this, the position is open to other degrees too.
It would be your own traveling PR firm.Hotdoggers are in charge of "organizing promotions and pitching TV, radio and print media."
And it's travel heavy.The job listing says it's "100% travel." So, any applicants should make sure they're ready to log some serious mileage!

And, bonus, you'll be turning heads while you do it.Being in a giant hot dog truck will do that.
