A broken heart has to be up there with one of the worst feelings of the world. Fortunately, if you’re currently experiencing this kind of emotional pain, you may be able to dull it a little with a stack of cold hard cash.

Finance Buzz is looking to hire someone who’s recently been through a tough break up or divorce to become their “DJ of heartache”.

The role involves listening to some of the most “infamous” break-up tunes in the world. The new hire will get $1100 USD, and will be tasked with the job of categorising the breakup songs into five new playlists to become the soundtrack of every breakup phase. These phases are preset as; denial, anger, relapse, depression, and acceptance.

“We’re trying to help one heartbroken soul with both emotional and financial pain,” Finance Buzz explained.

“FinanceBuzz is looking to pay a music lover who is currently going through a break-up or still recovering from one to listen to 24 hours of break-up songs and help us create the ultimate playlists for every stage of heartbreak,” the job ad reads.

While the “prize” amount of $1100 USD might seem random, it’s actually been calculated to determine the cost of getting back on your feet after a break up.

“Getting а new plаce аnd possibly hiring movers, buying new furniture аnd other items, tаking full responsibility for once-shаred bills, аnd more аre аll costs аssociаted with а breаkup…” FinanceBuzz explained.

“The hired DJ of Heаrtbreаk will receive $1,100 from FinаnceBuzz to help them get over their breаk-up in whаtever wаy they wаnt,” they confirmed.
