A famous YouTuber with over ten million followers is looking for an assistant — but her incredible list of demands has left thousands of Twitter users horrified.
The unidentified influencer, who is based in Los Angeles, shared the job posting for a personal assistant on EntertainmentCareers.net this week, promising $25 to $30 an hour for the ‘part-time’ job — wherein the assistant needs to be on-site eight hours a day and on-call 24/7.
The influencer demands that the future assistant be responsible not just for helping create content, but also cooking, cleaning, and chauffeuring — all while showing no emotion and not seeming ‘driven by fame.’
The influencer kept her identity hidden in the job posting, but said that she is ‘a well known celebrity/influencer with 10+ million followers’ who is looking for a’well organized/available/diligent personal assistant.
Though it is listed as a part-time job, the assistant must be ‘on property around 8 hours a day’ for $25 to $30 an hour. The assistant must also ‘on call almost 24/7,’ but presumably won’t be paid for calls at home.
‘The ideal candidate will be responsible for a large range of activities and projects which will assist this organization’s leadership,’ the posting reads.
The assistant will be responsible for domestic tasks like cleaning and cooking, as well as waking the influencer each day with their schedule and coffee.
The assistant should also feel comfortable planning and managing calendar activities; communicating with producers, videographers, editors. managers, stylists, cleaning services, friends, and other celebrities; and handling all personal tasks for the YouTuber.
What’s more, the assistant seems to be expected to have a background in content production, and will be responsible for researching and preparing for all pre-production, production, and post production activities.
Other tasks include managing the influencer’s social media accounts, assisting on minor video projects, and letting a busy stream of people into the house through each day.
They will also have to ‘organize and pack/unpack client’s bags constantly,’ organize travel, and coordinate brand partnerships.
The influencer demands that the assistant live no more than 60 minutes away, have a car and be ‘able to drive client anywhere at any time,’ ‘take ownership on each project,’ and have ‘minimal days off.
One of the oddest requirements is an ‘ability to compartmentalize emotion and remain professional, calm and hardworking, and quiet at all times.’
The listing reads: ‘You must keep all emotion/private life matters completely away from this world. You will deal with lots of incredibly private matters.
‘You must be able to be the bad guy, remove emotion, handle intense conversations, and bounce back instantly from any mistakes without emotion.
‘You must remain sober yet social and inviting in very high profile environments. You can not take photos, post to social media, or be/seem driven by fame. Once the COVID-19 pandemic is over you must be willing to travel anywhere at any time.’
Since New York Times reporter Taylor Lorenz shared the posting on Twitter this afternoon, it has quickly racked up thousands of likes and comments.
‘HUNDREDS of small tasks at once lmaoooo,’ wrote one.
‘It’s the “wake up client with schedule and coffee” that’s killing me. you’re also a f***ing butler lolol,’ replied writer Dana Schwartz.
‘When i got to 25-30 an hour I burst out laughing,’ writer Jessica Valenti chimed in.
‘This mentions being without emotion like five times — not a good sign,’ remarked writer Mathew Ingram.
