Publicity Manager (New York): You’ll be working in DC’s Marketing Department, executing “public relations projects" and providing “daily content for company news blogs.”

Executive Assistant #2 (Burbank): You’ll be working for the DCE Sales Marketing and Business Development department. They’ll probably make you fight Executive Assistant #1, and then kiss.
