This is the freakiest job ad you’ll read today

Help-wanted

Job hunters, stop your search. We’ve found the best help-wanted ad in America, with the caveat that it’s just a little bit creepy as hell. The job is “Jackson Hole (Wyoming) Personal Assistant.” A “divorced, awesome father of two” is hoping to find a yoga-practicing body worker “to assist in managing nearly every aspect of his busy and juicy life.” He goes on to explain thusly: “Just some of the hats you’ll be wearing are: butler, chauffeur, bookkeeper, dog sitter, gardener, and organic/vegetarian/macro super chef, knowledgeable and safe tour/ski/water/guide, housekeeper, travel agent and baby sitter.” He says the job could go to a man or a woman, though he seems to prefer someone “uniquely girly and a bit of a tomboy.” For a comprehensive, exhausting and mildly disturbing job description, read the full listing after the jump, keeping in mind the outgoing assistant’s ominous warning that “the next person that has this position must be in the ‘yes’ business.”
