Cushy gig at taxpayer expense

|
Joan Mower

USAJOBS posted an ad for a “senior executive” at the U.S. Agency for Global Media, which oversees the Office of Cuba Broadcasting.
The ad gives few details, but Joan Mower gladly fills in the blanks on Twitter:

Great USG job @ fun, small agency. Good salary ($176,500), no education needed, no heavy lifting, virtually no supervisory resp., Extremely unusual posting — given the easy duties. & international travel! Apply!

Mower is development director for the media agency, formerly the Broadcasting Board of Governors. Her Twitter page says she “loves Africa, tennis, horses, Corgis and my family.”

BBG Watch, which first reported Mower’s tweet about the job, said her description of the position on LinkedIn was even more over the top. It read:

Looking for a GREAT U.S. Government job at a tiiny [sic], fun agency — pays up to $174,500 a year with NO HEAVY LIFTING. This SES position is probably the cushiest SES out there — no educational requirements, mainly handholding for a couple of executives. Virtually no supervisory duties, an “advisory” board that rarely meets and international travel!

No heavy lifting. Woof, woof!
