Paid jobs posted for the Olympics

It was brought to my attention today that there are paid positions posted at the Vancouver 2010 website. I’m not sure why I assumed they were looking for volunteers only. When I lived in Calgary during the build up to the 1988 Winter Olympics, there was no shortage of volunteers – all in it for the red and white Canada track suits. It was cooler to volunteer than it was to get a paid job for the big event in town. Me? I ended up working at the concession stand at one of the venues where they had figure skating. It was fun, but sad when I got all my Olympic pins stolen off my jacket in the staff coat closet. Bummer.
