(Newser) – Need a job? Well, as long as you don’t mind working 72 hours a week, being on call 24/7, and not having a significant other (or a pet), you can be Jennifer Lopez’s assistant! The job also requires you to, not surprisingly, “have a thick skin,” be able to “travel at a moment’s notice and know how to adjust in each city,” and, oh, “you may not get off for weeks,” a source tells Life & Style. Sounds like a piece of cake!

What else must you do to pocket the $55,000 to $65,000 salary? Not much, just "change diapers, work on little sleep, and cook if the butler is away," the source continues. Oh yeah, and you also have to be telepathic: "You have to know when J.Lo has her snack time. She won't say she's hungry, you're just expected to have food waiting."
