Apply Today to Be Lululemon's CEO!

Asks applicants to be able to “hold a headstand for at least 10 minutes.”

Either Lululemon is poking fun at its recent business woes, or it really does need a fearless leader who speaks Sanskrit. The yoga-supplies company, whose stock has slid 20 percent since its last CEO announced her coming departure, posted an irreverent want ad in stores and on its Facebook page on Thursday listing the job qualifications required of a new boss. Among them? "You are disciplined, focused and can hold a headstand for at least 10 minutes," "your go-to party trick is your dead-on impression of the yogi in Sh*T Yogis Say," and "on Friday afternoons you hit up wheatgrass and tequila shots (it's called work/life balance)." Analysts say the ad shouldn't be taken too seriously. Tell that to the yogis: 24 hours after the ad went up, Lululemon had already received 160 replies.
