I think craigslist joined CareerBuilder in trying to send a subtle message that it’s time for a career change, because this is the second ad for a nanny that I’ve found while looking for writing/editing jobs.
Here’s the ad, untouched, and if you don’t chuckle at the part about “a school that’s at least decent,” then you clearly have no sense of humor:
High-end Nanny. (Norwalk)
Childcare position for three children that leaves time for other things. You would: function within an upscale household with 1-2 other staff; cook; drive; run errands including grocery shopping; buy things for the children; and do some sporty activities. You should have: excellent judgment (no telephone, personal distractions while with children); an undergraduate degree from a school that’s at least decent; interpersonal judgment, not just with children but with the adults in household; several years’ experience working with children; a clear sense of self and maturity no matter what age.
Full-time hours unevenly distributed so that you have several days off/week.
