Brilliance! Georgetown undergrad needs personal assistant!

I've gotta tell you I feel like I do too at times... for LIFE.

Check this out. And this too.

I mean for about $300 a month, you can make bank as this dude's personal assistant. Do his laundry. Handle his dry cleaning. He'll give you the car, you have to run the errands, make the bed, etc.
If you're a Hoya Undergrad, you get preference for convienence. And you might get some bonuses at his discretion.

Why not? I mean doesn't it make sense? In this world, we live to work so much so and it starts young, I mean, damn, even among the elite and uber who go to GU downtown, they've gotta work, too and they don't have time to do simple things like manage their lives.

The pyramid scheme continues. But why not? It's the American Way. LOL.

Here's the actual post from Vox Populi, Georgetown's Online Blog...

Job Description:

I am a Georgetown undergrad student and part time employee in the financial services industry. I am looking for someone to take care some of my everyday tasks for 1 hr a day, 5 hrs/ week, $12/hr. I live on campus which would make things very easy convenient for a Georgetown student. The normal pay per week will be $60 ($300/month), even though on occasion it will be possible to work additional hours and/or receive bonuses at my discretion.

The schedule is completely flexible because I do not need to be around when you do the work. You can even spread it out over the course of the day. As my PA you will receive an email once a day by 9:00 am with a task list for that day and a time estimate for each task. Important tasks will be bolded on the list and must be done that day (even though everything on the list should theoretically be finished on a daily basis). At the end of the day you will send me an email telling me what tasks are incomplete or that all tasks have been completed.

Tasks such as doing laundry that involve a lot of waiting around (time when you could be doing other tasks or doing your own stuff) will be counted for the approximate amount of time it would take to do the labor involved. For instance, laundry will be counted for half an hour even though a laundry cycle takes 1.5 hrs to complete.

Job Requirements:

PA example tasks -Organize closet -make bed -Drop off / pick up dry cleaning -Drop me off / pick me up from work -Do laundry -Fill up gas tank -bring car for servicing -schedule appointment for haircut -Pay parking tickets -manage electronic accounts -shopping and running errands -other random tasks.

Preference will be given to applicants who are comfortable with city driving (car will be provided) and who are available when I need to be picked up and dropped off for work. Preference will also be given to Georgetown undergrads for convenience.

Available Openings: 1

Hours: 3.0 to 7.0 hours per week

Compensation: $10.00/hour to $12.00/hour, Occasional Bonuses

Start Date: Immediately

End Date: End of School Year

Time Frame: Academic Year

    If u can't do your own laundry how can you work in the financial sector? oh that musta been how the economy went bust - people too busy to do the 'mundane' tasks'.

    This guy could do all the tasks that need doing in the same space of time it takes him to think about what needs doing, writing it up then emailing it.
