Update those resumes; Queen Elizabeth is hiring3/22/2012
Are you courteous and friendly first thing in the morning? OK, well can you fake it? And can you balance a breakfast tray? Then get ready to work for the Queen of England, who is currently accepting applications for a 'trainee butler.' The position pays £15,000 -- around $24,000 -- for a 45-hour work week spent carrying out "a wide range of responsibilities, from messenger to food and beverage service." The new hire will live at Buckingham Palace and "other royal residences." Unfortunately for those of us on this side of the Atlantic, the position is limited to UK residents or singing candelabras and teapots, because we're pretty sure all palaces have those.
Would you work for the royal family?
