The Devil Wears Prada fans can now live out their dreams of working as an assistant in a fashion magazine.

A job listing posted on Condé Nast's careers site is seeking a real-life Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway) for Vogue's editor-in-chief and chief content officer Anna Wintour. 

The ideal candidate for this "critical role" needs to be "extremely organized, efficient, deadline-oriented, and able to multitask and prioritize in a fast-paced, matrixed, digital media environment."

The primary responsibilities of the future assistant include providing support with a wide range of administrative, coordination, and communication tasks, including managing her meetings, events, and other engagements.

Aside from making sure her presentations are on-point, the hopeful may also contribute content assignments, research, and/or special projects to Vogue.

The position, which "a million girls would kill for," requires a college degree and one to two years’ worth of experience in a similar field, along with “confidence, enthusiasm, and a can-do attitude balanced by humility and a willingness to learn.”

The candidate must also have "an ability to think on your feet and demonstrate personal accountability, initiative, and follow-through." Experience working with multiple countries/markets is also a big plus.

The coveted job pays up to $80,000 (P4.4 million) per year, and the office is based in New York. The deadline to apply is July 15, 2023.

The Devil Wears Prada was inspired by author Lauren Weisberger's personal experience as an assistant to Anna. It was adapted into a film in 2006.
