Requirements for the gig:
-This is not intended to be a full time job, and the work can be done around a conventional, 9-5 schedule.
The primary tasks the gig will entail:
-Transcribing audio and video taped interviews into text. This will be the primary responsibility and take the majority of the time. I estimate about 40-50 hours of total tape will need to be transcribed.
-Researching, collecting and organizing information (mainly biographical information about famous people). All research can be done from a computer using public, internet accessible sources.
-Other “assistant” type tasks, for example: scheduling travel, finding and vetting various freelancers (camera operators, designers, etc), or setting interview appointments.
What the job will NOT entail:
-Partying with me, hanging out with me, or having sex with me.
-Meeting me in person is not even required to do the job, and may never happen.
Reasons NOT to do the gig:
-If you think this will make you Tucker Max’s best friend for life because you are just so similar to him and wouldn’t that be fun lol?!?!

UPDATE: Due to overwhelming volume, the gig is now closed to new applications.
