Duke Is Offering A Full-Time Job That Pays Absolutely Nothing…Where Do I Sign Up?


Duke University, whose athletic budget is over $91 million, is apparently too cheap to pay people for their work. Duke athletics is graciously offering qualified candidates a full-time job that pays exactly nothing. The job is officially listed as “Athletic Facilities, Game Operations and Championships Assistant.” It’s a full-time position covering a period of 11 months and Duke prefers that applicants have four-year degrees. The position calls for someone to manage athletics facilities, assist with planning events and other operations, and “provide strategies that will improve the overall performance of the department.”

Let’s see how Twitter reacted to this new job opportunity at Duke.


I know they are not allowed to pay their athletes but not paying their employees too. That's just wrong. Not a good look for Duke, who has millions, to not offer to pay someone for 11 months. I'm sure someone will be dumb enough to accept this position just so that they can say they worked for Duke athletics on their resume. And that's why Duke can do something like this.
