Exclusive: Virginia’s Standards

We don’t quite know where to start with this help-wanted ad from one of Virginia‘s consultants, Leonore Blitz, who is “seeking an intern to work full-time at a consulting firm and assigned to work with a client who is a New York City Mayoral candidate, the only female running in the Democratic primary.”

Blitz, who was a major fundraiser for John Kerry, certainly has high standards: The job-seeker should be “an undergraduate or a 2005 graduate, preferably from an Ivy League or comparable caliber institution.”

And that’s not all: “Skills required include…poise and self-assurance.”

But what really caught our eye was a certain lack of confidence in Fields’s own prospects of making it to November:

“Length of internship would ideally be through September 20, 2005.”
