Want to be Reggie's assistant?

11:17 AM on 01.29.2007

Well, do you? Nintendo of America is currently hiring! Looking at the list of responsibilities and requirements, it seems like being Reggie's assistant would be one hell of a hard job. What sticks out at me especially is the one requirement: "Ability to relay information with tact and diplomacy." So does that mean that if you give Reggie any bad news, you might end up the victim of a vicious wiimote beating? Sincerely doubt it, but it's funny as hell to imagine.

Hit the jump for the requirements for the job.
