Need a job? Specifically a job that doesn't really pay anything but allows you to strut around in a badass costume at night and "fight crime"? Well, Seattle's premiere real-life superhero, Phoenix Jones, has an offer for you!
According to Jones' blog, the Rain City Superhero Movement - described as "a 15 member crime prevention group" that Jones leads - is currently looking for new recruits. If you meet a somewhat ridiculous list of requirements - like owning a bulletproof vest and not being a journalist (or someone enrolled in journalism school) - you could join Jones' team!
As mentioned, this gig isn't for everyone. According to the help-wanted ad on Jones' blog, applicants must be 18 or older, have a steady form of income (because real-life superhero work pays the soul, but not the bank account), have a valid Washington ID, have no felony or violent crimes on your record, have military, police, or "provable" martial arts experience, carry (or be willing to obtain) a CPR and first aid card, own a a bulletproof vest "level 2A or better," be willing to submit to a background check ... and not be a journalist.
Sound like you? Well, then, future hero - apply here.
However, don't even think about padding your resume. Of the required martial arts, police, or military experience, Jones says "I will test you on this be accurate with your training level."
While the gig requires a clean record - and specifically no felony or violent crimes in your past - Jones does point out that, "If you have a crime pending you will not be excepted till the case is closed or resolved."
Good to know.
And as for the bulletproof vest requirement, Jones notes that one will be provided for you during your first few patrols, but within a month of being accepted you'll be required to buy one. The good news, as Jones points out, is "We have a company that provides these at an extreme discount."
