Yes, you read that right: You could get paid to put together jigsaw puzzles for a living.

The museum has a collection of 7,500 puzzles from as late as the 1700s - and some of them have missing pieces. According to the Penny Hoarder, the person who gets hired wouldn't complete every puzzle, but rather would do as much of the puzzle as possible to identify the historic image in order to catalog it properly. For this reason, the museum is looking for someone with an understanding of history.

Putting together jigsaw puzzles is a lot of fun. They are very inexpensive now and many public libraries have a selection for members to check out. If you haven't worked on a jigsaw puzzle before, here are some tips to help you get started.

Christopher Bensch, Vice President for Collections at The Strong, explained the ideal candidate to Time: "It's somebody who's curious and ready to learn. This is a chance to be immersed in a collection unlike any other." If this role hardly sounds like "work" to you, that's good, because Bensch says the position is more about "satisfaction than riches." While the role is more than minimum wage, Bensch says it won't be enough for a new car.

Good thing the job comes with benefits, such as paid time off and medical coverage after 90 days with the company. He says there will also be more opportunities with the museum after the six-month role expires. The ideal applicant will also have a bachelors degree in museum studies, history, humanities or another related field.
