You read it right. This is a job advertisement.
Of course it isn’t for you. You’re one of those kicks-ass-and-takes-no-names entrepreneurs. You’re proudly unemployable. However, this may be a job you can connect someone to in a suave and sexy networking master move that wins you a loyal friend for life.
