If you admire the strength, fortitude, and skill of the Sherpa people, you’re not alone
. Nor are you alone in wondering what being a Sherpa has to do with chillin’ alongside a beer-swilling guitar player:

1. Unfocused guitar player looking for Sherpa/life manager

In need of someone to help me organize and focus my life. Sort of like a personal assistant, altho I wont be having you do very much. This gig will probably involve sitting around a lot and doing very little. The compensation offered will reflect that. It may also involve listening to me complain, offering advice, doing tasks for me that I could easily do myself but dont want to, helping me find a job that I like, and picking up beer. These “Sessions” could go on for an hour, or you could party with me if your cool, and it might end up going on for a couple days. The biggest thing is to help find jobs for me that you think I might like and send my resume for me. You should also possess the ability to make a resume for me that disguises the fact that i have very few skills as far as work is concerned.

The ideal canidate for this gig has no actual skills in the area of life management, has low expectations, and is an attractive girl.

E-mail me for more info and the opportunity to party lavishly with a gawdy and eccentric rock and roller.


2. Canada: Audit Manager

Our client is a very successful and dominant public practice based in the Northwest Territories. It essentially has a monopoly on clients in its geographical region. A monopoly born from great client relationships, quality and integrity.

It seeks an Audit Manager with 5-10 years of audit experience to join the firm and provide outstanding service to its broad portfolio of clients.

Remuneration: $90,000 – $130,000 + Rent free house + Benefits

We’re a friendly monopoly. We swear.

3. Austin: Many jobs in one …

Many jobs in one. This job is hard to explain but does guarantee at least minimum wage on your own terms. We need some parking signs sold, we need some ticketing work done and we need some monitoring services. I really don’t know how else to explain it.

This job does have some weird hours but in all likelihood, it will be less than 40 hrs per week. There is a real possibility here to develop substantial extra income from bonuses. You will get back what you put into it.

Look, we have an elaborate marijuana ring that uses parking lots as fronts. We need you to help set it up, make it look like a legitimate operation, and make sure law enforcement stays out. I really don’t know how else to explain it.
