Los Angeles’ Preeminent Literary Journal Seeks Jacqueline-of-all-trades

Exchanging Pleasantries was casually formed sometime during Jeff Zucker’s stay at NBC Universal, though it doesn’t really have anything to do with Mr. Zucker or NBCU.

Do you watch Mad Men? Good, then you’ll understand this perfectly. Exchanging Pleasantries is looking for someone who looks like Joan, acts like Burt Cooper and drinks like Don Draper.

The job tasks include, but are not limited to: making a mean vodka soda with a slice of lemon, proof-reading (I’m not sure if that’s supposed to be hyphenated and it’ll be your job to figure that out), driving to obscure parts of town chasing ‘it’ food trucks, reminding The Neapolitan Mastiff to get a haircut, waking up Hugo De Naranja for his other job, making sure the founders don’t accidently commit fraud (it’s happened before) and lastly, you will be required to get psyched, I mean really psyched, every time a Hot Chip song comes on in the office.


Proficient in Word, Final Draft, Word Press and creperie

Cannot be afraid of blood. (The Neapolitan Mastiff has been known to gut a goat on occasion in the office kitchen.)

An appreciation for the music of David Liebe Hart

Multi-lingual (negotiable)

A drinking problem (a strong penchant for drinking is also acceptable)

A driver’s license

A French accent (this isn’t negotiable)

Salary will D.O.E. We are looking to fill this position before Running Wilde gets cancelled…

Please email your C.V. to exchangingpleasantries@gmail.com (cover letters should include your vodka preference and how long it takes you to run a mile. Mile times must be current)
