Nintendo's Reggie needs an assistant


The ultimate seat of power is currently available for Nintendo fanboys and fangirls everywhere: Assistant to the president at Nintendo of America. Unless there's been a major shift over at Nintendo HQ in Redmond, that means working directly for Reggie Fils-Aime. Imagine the power, which any office worker will tell you lies with the assistant. You'd be the hand of Reggie, unleashing Nintendo of Americas salvation or wrath. You'd never want for Wii again, product would flow for you like the Nile.

Only problem is the job description is the stuff high-powered positions that own the ear of a company president are made of. Eight years of related experience, ability to relay information with tact and diplomacy and a preference to someone bilingual in Japanese and English. The full job description can be found after the break. Wonder how Reggie takes his coffee?
