I'm not looking for a new job and the needs to be known before getting into this job posting that's on Craigslist.
I was doing my daily Reddit scroll when I discovered that someone had shared a link to a Craigslist post in the Jobs section that read "I love checking the CL job ads because I find treasures like this" and I had to click.
After reading just the headline of the job posting I was hooked "Amazing Personal Assistant Needed for Recovering CEO!" and had to continue reading.
The post starts with "I was the CEO of a large company that I just sold. I'm very fortunate to have more free time than I've ever dreamed of, have a lifestyle that most would label as amazing and still be young. Today, I manage my private investments, real estate, and other business with a team I have in place."
Then the "recovering CEO" really starts to explain why an assistant is needed "'m messing up ALL of my personal relationships, not holding myself accountable, and not improving myself the way that I used to. I have no idea why this has started happening or I'm just that oblivious."
Are you starting to feel bad for this person?
The job posting continues with "I hope that you can be honest and will help me see what I'm missing and how I'm being perceived, or coming across to people at all times. Although this is really bothering me I truly want to fix this issue by finally being vulnerable/admitting that this is a weakness of mine. Life is no good if you've got all the time in the world and the means to enjoy it, but only mediocre relationships."
