*NEW* Translator
Description: We've had numerous requests to translate this site and course material into other languages (helping the International School of Slack to become truly international and inclusive). Languages include the gamut, ranging from Western European (French, German, English) to Chinese, Hindi, Telegu, Cantonese, etc.

Requirements: Solid understanding of History of Chunking. Experience in abandoned bicycle procurement, fork modifications, in-field life-support techniques, and spot welding required. Must have completed significant college-level (or graduate) coursework in some useless field. Please submit portfolio of lo-ride bicycle mod/designs with your application.

Professional Staff -- Slack Computer Expert

The International School of Slack needs some extra muscle for some of its projects, and staff augmentation is necessary! Experience in bulletin boards and that crizzap helpful.

Staff -- Web Site Maintenance and Design

Custodian -- Headquarters
Requirements: Ability to determine "junk" from True Slack Artifacts. A Test Will Be Given! (The last person who was in this position accidentally threw out a Sears component stereo system [ca. 1976], which included an integrated 8-track tape player and recorder along with a push-button FM/FMX/AM tuner that worked a lot like an old car radio--needless to say, they were gone the next day).
