Job Description: Personal Assistant

Overview: The position of Personal Assistant is both a demanding and rewarding one. We require a competent and highly organized individual with exceptional foresight and a fairly high stress tolerance. Our personal assistant is responsible for the maintenance of Our daily routine in both professional and private circles, from the minute We wake up in the morning until the moment We fall asleep at night. We desire a pro-active individual that will be able to respond quickly and positively to all manner of situations with poise and quiet efficiency. We expect Our personal assistant to be observant and to eventually learn to anticipate Our needs, Our whims, and even Our moods. In the event that Our own instructions cannot be carried out for whatever reason, We expect Our personal assistant to HANDLE IT to Our eventual satisfaction. This position will come with a great deal of responsibility and trust. Relocation is imperative. A summary list of personal requirements as well as Our personal preferences is listed at the end of this document.
