Do you celebrate Jim and Pam‘s anniversary? Do you know the ZIP code of Scranton, PA? Do you dream in sitcom tropes? If so, Dish might have a dream gig for you.

To celebrate 15 years since “The Office” first aired, will pay one die-hard fan to watch 15 hours of the beloved TV show.

The lucky person who lands the job needs to watch 15 hours of “The Office,” which is approximately 45 episodes. This should be a breeze for a die-hard Dunder Mifflin fan, as there were 201 episodes of the show, which aired over nine seasons.


If selected, you will have some work to turn in when you’re done. The winner must complete a checklist counting the number of common tropes that occur throughout each episode.

So it’s not exactly like landing a job at Dunder Mifflin, but the person who gets picked for this gig will earn a paycheck that would make Angela sneer and extra perks that Toby would definitely frown upon. Here is what you can look forward to if your application is selected:

  • $1,000
  • A winner’s kit loaded with “The Office” swag
  • A Netflix gift card

When should you apply? “As ASAP as possible.” Complete the application form for this dream position at no later than 5 p.m. MST on March 16. Along with writing a description explaining why you are the world’s biggest fan of “The Office,” they suggest including a video submission to boost your chances.

This opportunity is open to U.S. residents 18 years old or older only. You do not need to be a USDish customer to apply for this gig.

Once you apply, you will receive an email confirmation. The winner will be notified within five days of the closing date, so be sure to check your spam folder.

Crossing your fingers for luck can’t hurt. After all, even if you’re not superstitious, you might be a little stitious.
