The D.C. government wants to help its constiuents find work -- even its exotic dancers.

A search for “dancer” on the city's online job bank returned a listing for an “exotic dancer” at the Stadium Club in northeast D.C., which bills itself as “an upscale gentlemen’s club,” according to a report on WAMU.

The radio station contacted D.C. officials, who noted that DC Networks -- which helps link job seekers with prospective employers -- is a user-generated website, but the officials also acknowledged that the Department of Employment Services staff vetted the job listing and decided to post it because there is nothing illegal about being an exotic dancer, WAMU reported.

In an update to the story, the D.C. Mayor’s Office told WAMU that the Stadium Club voluntarily agreed to take the posting down.

However, if dancing at an adult club suits your skill set, at least two listings remain on the site for employers in Baltimore. The ads solicit a recent photo, and as far as compensation, note “The sky is the limit. You control how much you make."
