Heng Yi, publicity official at the panda center, said:

“Many people at our center do the same job, but the salary was never that high. But we want more people to pay attention to giant pandas’ protection work and participate.”

The baby pandas are too cute they look more like stuffed toys than real animals.

Ye Mingxin, market manager for Ford Motor Co in China and one of the recruitment organizers, explained:

“You need perseverance for this job. We expect that the applicants will be mainly white-collar workers from big cities. They are used to eating whatever they want, but inside the giant panda base, the choices will not be plentiful.”

At the end of the day, I only have one question here – where do I sign up for such an awesome job?
