Beyond the Paycheck: Jobs With Great Perks


One of the most memorable lines from the movie "The Devil Wears Prada" is, "A million girls would kill for this job" -- the job in question of course being aspiring journalist Andy Sachs' role as an assistant to the editor-in-chief of Runwaymagazine (a character supposedly inspired by Vogue matriarch Anna Wintour). The rest of the movie is basically a series of scenes in which assistant Sachs runs around Manhattan with coffee, Chanel and the occasional fully grown St. Bernard, all while taking orders from her crazy boss and trying to stave off a mental breakdown.

So why on earth would a million girls kill for the chance to work tirelessly for a demanding boss and a measly $25,000 a year?

Two words: Job perks.
