Big Fuel Communications are hiring: break away from the boring traditional agencies!

At http://www.bigfuel.com/jobs Big Fuel mock those training college ads while announcing that they are actually looking to hire you. They got it all, hot and cold water, sassy pillows, laptops and all other things that belong in a non-traditional agency. Don't apply for "iguana wrestler" though, that job is so mine! And yes, that's Jon Bond from the "traditional" agency we all know and love - Kirshenbaum and Bond, now he is the CEO Big Fuel Communications LLC, and he's never been happier. Thanks Big Fuel.
