That’s right, GE Appliances, a Haier company, is hiring a professional Grandma. It’s a one-year, paid gig to help the company demonstrate how simple life can be with new technology in the kitchen.
Today, 30 “Grandma interns” will audition for the Great American Grandma at CES as the job listing is posted across the country and the search begins. The only application needed is a short video telling us about why Grandma should be chosen.
GE Appliances is casting this new role, Grandma—the stereotypical antithesis of technology—who can now cook in the kitchen, virtually. But not just any Grandma. A big-hearted, age-defying, lives-life-to-the-fullest and brings-out-the-best-in-everyone kind of Grandma.
The position will require plenty of smiles, laughs, selfies, videos and social posts. The right candidate will be sharp, hip, forever young, socially engaged and willing to travel.
Here's how to nominate your nana, bubby, or granny, or grams:
Compensation: $50,000 salary as a contracted employee for 10–15 hours a month—March 15, 2019–March 15, 2020—plus five brand-new, top-of-the-line GE Appliances kitchen products. Additional opportunities possible.
To Apply: Candidates should visit www.greatamericangrandma.com to submit a video about why they are the Great American Grandma. No résumé needed. Include the grandkids (or not). Friends and family can also submit applications on Grandma’s behalf by submitting interviews with their squeezable, lovable, witty, cantankerous, fashionable, camera-loving, foodie, edgy matriarch.
