Donald Trump and Mike Pence are hiring.
What jobs are available, you ask?
Most of them. All of them?
In a somewhat unusual move, Trump announced he's looking for staffers in a post on his website titled, "Help Wanted: 4,000 Presidential Appointees."
Did the president-elect just advertise positions in the White House like they're part-time jobs at Baskin-Robbins?
Is this real life?
President Elect Trump has promised to change Washington, DC and that will start with identifying and recruiting the finest men and women from across the country to serve in his Administration. Service in the Trump-Pence Administration will be service to our Nation and thus a high honor, which demands both sacrifice and dedication.
The page also says,
The time commitment is significant and the pace is fast.
Good to know.
Also, if you apply, be prepared to answer A LOT of questions.
Trump is clearly not a big fan of transparency, especially given the fact that he still hasn't released his tax returns. But if you want to work for him, you have to be willing to expose yourself like a drunken streaker at an NFL game.
The recruitment page states,
You will be asked about possible conflicts of interest deriving from your sources of income; all aspects of your personal and professional life, including organizations which you belong or once belonged; speeches you may have given and books, articles and editorials you may have written; legal, administrative and regulatory proceedings to which you may have been a party; in short, anything that might embarrass the President or you if he should choose you for a position in his Administration.
Yes, be willing to speak about "anything that might embarrass" you or the president-elect because, you know, Trump has NEVER done anything embarrassing. It's not like he got caught on tape bragging about sexual assault or anything.
Trump has no government experience. He's never held elected office.
So, he's clearly going to need some help moving forward.
Even if you despise everything about him – he's not exactly the most popular guy in the world right now – this could be a good move.
Change things from the inside. Go behind enemy lines.
