You just HAVE to.

Please include a resume, along with a bullet point cover letter of each job requirement indicating why you would be an ideal candidate.
Compensation: $75,000 / yr
$75,000 a year for a personal assistant?
Granted, this person will be traveling between 50-75% of the time.
And this person will be getting some free meals out of it too since there's a requirement to be "comfortable in social situations".
I've got say that the THREE WEEKS PAID TIME OFF is very alluring.
But a "bullet point cover letter"? Isn't that a bit much?
Needless to say, I don't have any kind of official "massage training". But I'm sure my Dad would vouch for me on how strong my hands are and that I give a pretty good massage. For an amateur.
Now do YOU qualify for the job?
