A recent ad campaign from the Transportation Security Administration is raising eyebrows.
Not satisfied with slapping its ad slogan on signs in the Metro, the TSA is attempting to recruit security screeners using the lids of pizza boxes in the Washington area.
“A career where X-ray vision and federal benefits come standard,” reads the ad on the boxes.
“See yourself in a vital role for Homeland Security. Be part of a dynamic security team protecting airports and skies as you proudly secure your future,” the ad continues.
First noticed by WTOP, the ad caused buzz in the blogosphere Wednesday.
“TSA routinely advertises for job openings through a variety of avenues ranging from traditional print advertisements to more creative ways to reach a wide audience,” TSA spokeswoman Lauren Gaches told The Examiner.
