By Winnie Mabel February 13th, 2023 3 min read

A woman by the name Katerina Delcheva took to TikTok to reveal how a job she applied for on the professional website, LinkedIn, turned out to be a position for a sugar baby.

A sugar baby is a younger person who mostly receives financial support from an older person who is looking for romantic company.

Sugar babies are known to accept such relationships because of the money, gifts, and traveling always associated with such relationships, and such arrangements are often preferred by older people looking for casual situations without any strings attached.

In a video captioned, “How I applied for a job on LinkedIn and it turned out it’s for a sugar baby position, Katerina revealed that the job advert came with a job description that included responsibilities such as providing high-level administrative support, arranging travel, and accommodations, performs office tasks including bookkeeping, ordering supplies and maintaining records; and performs other duties as assigned by executives.

In the skills and abilities section, the advert sought someone who had excellent verbal and written communication skills, excellent organizational skills, excellent time management skills with a proven ability to meet deadlines, and the ability to function in a high-paced and, at times, stressful environment, among others.

“The advert looked legit to be honest. You can see that there was a super detailed job description of everything.

The only suspicious thing actually was this here, the last line that reads ‘must be able to lift up to 15 pounds at times’ like, why? As you can see here, the job was for a personal secretary or executive assistant (in Dubai),” began Katerina.

She shared a message from an Amir Shezad, who confirmed having reviewed her application for the Personal Secretary job that was set to pay Sh 1.19 million a month.

He also went on to ask Katerina if she was an open-minded and friendly lady ready to work with wealthy executives in their private spaces and in a submissive manner.

“To be honest, I was in shock. My first thought was ‘eeew, I’m going to block this guy or something’ but then I was like, it was very interesting. How do they do that on LinkedIn? So let me just ask some questions,” added Katerina.

She shared screenshots of her conversation with Amir where she asked for more details of the job and was told it was “more of a submissive sugar baby role.”

She asked where the job position would be based and whether it was for a company or a person. She was told it was personal and would be located in Business Bay, Dubai; and that she would have to go for an interview after she submitted her curriculum vitae and pictures, talked about her fetishes and how she would be a good submissive sugar baby.

“This is the moment I lost it. I got so disgusted from all this talk, and I was like, ‘no way I’m replying’. I nearly vomited in my mouth because I was not going to do this. I’m sorry, as much as I’m broke and like I don’t have a job right now.

And I would love that AED 35,000 a month. There was no way I was going to take it. No ma’am. No, no, no, no,” said Katerina.

She concluded by saying that Amir Shezad’s LinkedIn account is no longer active, and she couldn’t find his account or their communication in her messages but was happy that she had screenshot them.
