jamaican job hunters are using social media to seek jobs in the country, but one man is taking a different approach.
In the past two weeks, Justin Smeets has posted an ad on Craigslist in hopes of hiring a hunting staff member in Jamaica.
He says he has a long list of qualifications, including a hunting rifle, a hunter’s knife and a firearm, but he says he wants to focus on the job hunting aspect of the job.
He’s looking for a “hard core hunter with a lot of experience” and said he wants a person with “great skills and experience” for a part-time position.
“I’m not going to sit around and wait to fill a position, I’m going to come out and hunt,” Smeet said.
“It’s a little bit of a job hunt, but if you want to hunt for yourself, you can get that opportunity, and I’m looking for that opportunity.”
If I can get someone to do that job for me, that’s what I’m here for.
“The ad has since garnered over 1,200 responses, with a total of 12 hunters from Jamaica.
Smeets says the job hunt has also made him reconsider his career.”
After I’ve done a couple of months of hunting, I decided that I didn’t want to do this anymore,” he said.
In a statement, Smeits said he’s still interested in hunting, but not hunting full-time.”
My hunting experience has been limited to a couple years, but I am now looking to expand my knowledge of the sport and to further my career as a hunter,” he wrote.SMEETS is the first hunter to advertise for a hunting position on Craigslist.
