When anyone at Georgetown thinks “personal assistant,” the first person to jump to mind is Charlie Cooper, the then-sophomore who in fall 2009 became the man behind the Student Employment Office posting heard ’round the world.
This time around, though, someone a little closer to the top is seeking a personal assistant to help him out with his everyday duties and transportation needs (and not his laundry): University President Jack DeGioia.
After apparently failing to find a sufficient candidate on Craigslist, a recent job posting on Georgetown’s Human Resources website finds the University seeking a “Special Assistant to the President” (sounds official, no?) to work “with discretion and flexibility” for President DeGioia.The duties are listed in a way that is both vague and enjoyably alliterative, as it calls for someone capable of “assembling, assimilating, and analyzing briefing materials.”
No word as to whether rejected or unworthy applicants will face the wrath of Dino Jack, but we really hope so.
