This Week’s Weird Jobs


Some employers expect perfection, but don’t express that wish outright.
Instead, they use phrases like “I run a million miles per hour and you need to run ahead of me” and “non-union, English-speaking plasterer with own tools and vehicle required.” See what kinds of perfectionists you can find in the listings below:


I am a busy, hard working and ambitious business owner. I run at a million miles an hour and need you to run alongside and whenever possible, ahead of me and to make me seem accessible when I am not. I need a right hand person for whom no job is too small or big, who is motivated by helping me build my business, by making my life easier and by making me feel and look like I’m ahead of the game. Please respond with your resume and salary history and expectations.

Please be OK with the fact that you will never be good enough for me.
