FinanceBuzz is on the lookout for individuals recently out of a relationship to embark on a unique side hustle: listening to 24 hours of breakup music. As breakup season approaches, with a spike in separations post-New Year and peaking in March, the financial advice site aims to craft the ultimate breakup playlist through real-time reactions to classic and modern heartbreak hits. The role, dubbed the "DJ of Heartache," offers a compensation of $1,100 to assist in categorizing and rating songs for their effectiveness in aiding the healing process.
The initiative not only taps into the emotional journey of moving on but also addresses the financial strain of breakups. FinanceBuzz calculates the recovery cost at approximately $1,100, accounting for individual subscriptions, premium dating services, therapy, and comfort foods. Interested candidates, who must be at least 18 years old and recently single, have until midnight ET on February 14, Valentine's Day, to apply. The selected DJ will be given two weeks to complete the task, offering a blend of emotional and financial support during the breakup season.
