Atari Job Ad from 1982

The year was 1982 and if you were a kid who dreamed of one day working in the video games, ads like this in magazines set you into adult workplace day dreams. So I can get paid to work with computers??? Maybe even on video games? Sign me up!

Sadly even after several decades I am not qualified for any of the positions listed here…


Did anyone else cut out these ads as a kid? Anyone out there get a job through ads like this one?
