OPENING: PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE

Are you ‘absolutely rapid’ like Usain Bolt? Do you have ‘unbelievable tekkers’ like Neymar? Can you hit a cross-court winner like Maria Sharapova? Are you a multi-event maestro like Jessica Ennis? More importantly, do you have the drive, ambition and natural talent to make it to the top of your sport?

If the answer is ‘yes’, you just might have what it takes to become a professional athlete.

We're looking for candidates with natural talent, determination, strength, fitness, technique and self-discipline.

Job Requirements: You will be required to travel all over the world to compete in sporting events, which may involve working weekends and national holidays from time to time. Training will be a daily occurrence. With the guidance of your coach, you will train almost every day of the year, refining your technique, building your strength, increasing your stamina and working on tactics.

Compensation: Commensurate with experience and talent; team agents will assist in procuring endorsement deals as well. 

To apply, send your resume and cover letter to Coach Earls, aearls@mercyhurst.edu

OPENING: PRESIDENT 

Are you a dynamic mediator who can work with people from different backgrounds? Can you hold your own in a debate, take advice from and delegate to an enormous staff of professionals and aids, and rock a tiny flag pin? Do you have the stamina for 24/7, four-year service to the greatest country in the world? Are you proud to be an American? Then you should apply to be President of the United States.

Requirements: Must be an incredible leader. No education or previous employment can truly prepare you for this position, but governing experience of some kind would be nice.

Basic compensation: Base salary of $400,000 per year, as well as $50,000 per year for expenses related to job functions, $100,000 for travel, a pension for retirement, and full room and board at the White House. 

Risks: Premature aging, exposure of all the skeletons in your closet, possible assassination (especially if you're someone who shakes things up), and making terrible decisions that will be scrutinized by the public and historians for centuries to come.

To apply, send your resume and cover letter to White House Manger Dr. Averill Earls, aearls@mercyhurst.edu
