After a family member recently fell ill, 19-year-old Georgetown sophomore Charley Cooper realized he was running on fumes. His schedule, jampacked with schoolwork and a part-time job, made completing the simpler, everyday items on his to-do list difficult. Cooper's solution? Hire a personal assistant.

Cooper's ideal assistant will help him with "everyday tasks" like doing laundry, filling up his car's gas tank, and giving him rides to and from work, the Washington Post reports. Cooper's advertisement on Georgetown's student employment website says the job has flexible hours, which can range from three to seven hours a week, and good pay—$10 to $12 an hour.

The Post contacted Cooper through Facebook. Cooper tells the paper that the posting is not a joke and that the work could be appealing to a student who needs extra cash.

"I know that if I didn't already have a job, I would definitely be interested in a job that pays $10 to $12 per hour and is flexible in terms of hours," he tells the Post.
