By: Maura / July 13, 2007

Diddy is clearly entranced by the power of YouTube, and now he’s taking that fascination one step further: Instead of looking for a personal assistant by doing something boring like asking for cover letters and references, he’s asking those looking to organize his late-night Burger King runs and complicated finances to upload videos stating their case for employment worthiness. (That sucking sound you heard was the country’s newspaper publishers, whose classified-ad revenue has taken yet another body-blow.) One tip for aspiring targets of Diddy’s day-to-day freakouts: If you really, really want the job, you may want to make sure that your interviewer can actually hear you.
