Yes, dear reader, it’s true. As our title promises, you really do have a chance to work for Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. At the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry, he just posted Join Our Culinary Services Team at the Ark Encounter or Creation Museum. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
It takes hundreds of people (over 1,000 during our peak times) to operate Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum, and the Ark Encounter. We so appreciate all of our employees as they do an amazing job making our two attractions wonderful places to visit, producing all our Answers in Genesis resources, keeping the ministry running smoothly, and so much more. And we want you to join the team!
Did you hear that? Hambo says: “we want you to join the team!” Isn’t that the greatest thing you’ve ever heard? Wanna learn more? Of course you do, so we’ll continue. Hambo says:
We’re hiring at AiG, the Ark Encounter, and the Creation Museum in many different departments. [Ooooooooooooh!]
Then he gets specific:
One specific department we’re looking for several hard-working individuals is culinary services at both the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum. Our Culinary Services Team is responsible for the delicious food we serve at both locations, as well as greeting guests, keeping the area clean (the cleanliness of our attractions usually gets a rating of “excellent” on guest surveys!), completing transactions through our point-of-sale system, and other duties.
Wowie — just what you’ve always wanted! After that he tells us:
Prior experience is a plus, but not required. We will train you. It could provide a great experience for your future employment and a unique opportunity to work in a Christian ministry. We’re hiring for seasonal positions, as well as full-time, so there’s flexibility depending on what you are looking for in a job.
Isn’t that great news? There’s flexibility! Hambo continues:
We’re hosting open interviews [Link omitted.] every Thursday from 9 a.m. through 4 p.m. at a church just down the road from the Ark Encounter. If you’re considering a career with our attractions, we encourage you to drop in at Mount Olivet Christian Church for an interview.
The interviews are at a church! Isn’t that wonderful? And the good news keeps coming:
Additional job openings at the ministry include:
• A/V technician
• Graphic designer
• Marketing Campaign Developer
• Public safety officer
• And many more!
There’s gotta be something on that list you’re qualified for. If not, at the end of his post Hambo links to an even bigger list:
Find a full list of available positions, and apply today, at Jobs at Answers in Genesis.
We don’t see it mentioned anywhere, but before you can be given your dream job, you’ll need to sign AIG’s Statement of Faith. Okay, dear reader, now head for Kentucky and find your future career working for ol’ Hambo. And hey — tell ’em the Curmudgeon sent ya.
