Can you believe it?

I responded to a Craigslist posting for "Model/Fitness - Wear Test/Focus Group," and ended up going in for a casting call yesterday for it. Basically, there is a company that designs all the new seamless sportswear/ undergarments for all the big companies like Patagonia, VS, Nike, Reebok, Banana Republic, etc. They are working on a project for a couple of clients to introduce a new sportswear line for "larger busted women" and need real women of that sort to test the products. So I went in, talked to them, described my level of physical activity, tried on a couple of their products, and got hired. This has got to be the easiest job ever. They will send me home with some of their garments, get me a 24 Hour Fitness gym membership, have me work out in the clothes and give them my feedback. For $50/hr. PLUS somewhere down the line, some of the women in the focus group will be chosen to fly to NY to meet with the design team for further fittings, etc. This may last anywhere from 3 days-2 weeks; all travel & expenses are fully paid, and participants will be compensated at the $500/day rate. What?! REALLY? Pick me! Pick me! Oh, please please please pick me!
But even if they don't, this is still an incredible "job."
No wonder those clothes are so expensive!!

Sounds like a fun job! I hope you get chosen for the NY trip. That would be very cool.

I was thinking about this, and as you know, I think this such a great job for you! But I was thinking that the New York thing might just be the bait to keep people in the program to the end, and not run off with the clothes and gym membership... If there is such a deal at the end, I am sure you will be one of those selected, if they are not blind and deaf (no bias here!), but I am not really too trusting of corporate promises involving a lot of money, ya know?

Oh, when do you start? Look forward to more details!

Well, I went in yesterday for the kickoff meeting. It looks like the project will last for at least a year, and that the travel portion is unpredictable, but potentially frequent and the trips will be to other big cities as well-- maybe I'll get to go to LA! Most of the project will be done through e-mail and the products come to us by mail. I expect the first couple of garments to come in a week or two. I probably won't blog about it again, though, since there are huge confidentiality rules. Very interesting!
