    A Russian company seeks to hire an personal assistant to help its CEO hunt Pokemon.

    The company, a service center chain called "Ruki Iz Plech" ("Helping Hands") has recently issued a call for a noble Pokémon hunter to help their boss chase these elusive digital creatures across Moscow – and they’re not joking.

    Sputnik managed to contact a company representative who confirmed that the job ad is genuine and not a hoax, and that over 500 applicants have already sent their resumes.

    "Our CEO became a passionate Pokémon hunter, but doesn’t have enough time for it. A person to achieve unparalleled results in this game for a fair salary is required," says the ad.

    The prospective hunter will use the CEO’s smartphone to play Pokémon Go, scooting around the city to capture rare Pokémon, capture bases, and (most importantly) making sure the phone stays charged the whole time!

    In case you were thinking of brushing off your Resume and sending it over, you should be aware that not just anyone can apply. The CEO needs an experienced gamer. The applicant must have reached at least level 20 on their own Pokémon Go account (and preferably also own their own personal power bank) and be prepared to fulfill their important duty "in any weather."
