Trust-Fund Baby Hires Frat Bros To Ogle Women

Jezebel has got hold of an email mass-forwarded to a fraternity's listserv. An anonymous trust-fund baby, known and loathed only by Jezebel, kindly offered up the following opportunity to his all of his bros back in 2011. Read it and weep. (Underlining for emphasis is our doing.)


As some of you may already know, I have been interested in the world of finance for some time. After a series of summer internships, however, I have somehow found myself without a full-time job offer for the upcoming year. Fuckin' Obama's fault for strangling this economy.

Luckily, due to the tough job market, my dad has agreed to let me access my trust fund early (mid 7-figures) to start a relatively small hedge fund, ___ Ventures, after graduation. I'm emailing you guys today to let you know that, for the rest rest of the year, I will be recruiting 2 full-time employees and 1 intern to help me get this off the ground.

With my financial expertise, help from my powerful father and connections, and a skilled team, I have no doubt that this fund will rise quickly to prominence. We'll all get filthy rich and, inevitably, bag hot slampieces. If possible, I'd love to give all 3 of these positions to my brothers.

Although you would technically be working for me, I like to think of it more as a team effort. I know that my education and background qualifies me to lead a venture of this sort, and I would really appreciate your support. Below are the job descriptions. If interested, please email me a resume, cover letter, and paragraph describing why you would be excited to work with me.

Position 1: Lead Investment Analyst-Because I will spend most of my time networking, raising money, and handshaking with industry bigwigs, I need someone with a strong quant background to take care of the majority of actual analysis.-Finance experience preferred but not required-Compensation: Low six figures with benefits

Postion 2: Office Manager/Secretary-Although this may not sound like the most prestigious role within a fund, someone needs to hand the day-to-day operations and while I and my Lead Investment Analyst conduct strategies to make us all rich. This person would also be in charge of hiring hot secretaries for us to ogle (and possibly slam) during the workday.-Detail oriented person needed-Compensation: $70,000 base with benefits (like working close with a slampiece)

Position 3: Intern/Pledge-This position is available to all sophomores and juniors. Think of it like pledging my hedge fund (so xxx and xxx need not apply)-I will judge this position primarily based on how hard you pledged and how I rate your slampiece pulling ability-Compensation: $25/hr with a good opportunity for full-time employment post graduation.

I'm really excited to get this going, and I hope some of you will be joining me. Let me know if you have any questions at all.

Firstly, on an objective note, if you have to dip into your trust fund to start your own business because nobody will hire you... you possibly shouldn't be running a hedge fund.

But if you're going down a road devoid of logic or common sense anyhow, it totally makes sense to hire a lead analyst who doesn't necessarily have any financial experience. Your average McDonald's worker is more qualified than these guys.

We're not fuming too much about this one, mostly because, somewhere, this guy is licking his wounds and looking sadly into the abyss of what once was his trust fund, muttering "Fuckin' Obama."
