A Ton Of Serious Applicants Responded To Lululemon's Joke Job Posting For A CEO

More than 160 people responded to Lululemon’s fake job listing for a new CEO, according to CNN Money.

The company told CNN Money that the job description, which it posted on its website last week, was a joke. 

Lululemon’s stunt was intended to show it has “always been a fun and irreverent brand…not afraid to spark a conversation in our communities,” a spokeswoman told CNN. 

CEO Christine Day announced last week that she would be moving on after five years with the company.

Here’s the job description, in case you missed it: 


You report to no one, you are the CEO (duh). You are passionate about doing chief executive officer type stuff like making decisions, having a vision and being the head boss person. 

 a day in the life of a chief executive officer

– You communicate powerfully, often through Sanskrit

– You are disciplined, focused and can hold headstand for at least 10 minutes

– You’re a long-term thinker. You already have a plan to bring yoga and luon to Mars by 2018

– You break all the rules like getting your OM-on (loudly) whenever the urge arises

– You elevate and cultivate the level of talent within the senior leadership team by holding The Bachelor lululemon. Only one successful SVP will get the final rose

– Not only do you lead the organisation to create components for people to live long, healthy and fun lives, you know the secret to how they got the caramel in the Caramilk bar

– You wear The Mansy to lead our company-wide morning chant and kombucha ritual

 the finer print 

– Your go-to party trick is your dead-on impression of the yogi in “Sh*T Yogis Say”

– You voted for Pedro

– You have Chip Wilson, Bill Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey on speed dial

– You actively live and breathe the lululemon culture – on Friday afternoons you hit up wheatgrass and tequila shots (it’s called work/life balance)

– You use your third eye to channel innovation

– Your lineage is directly related to Phidippides

– You own yoga
