DescriptionThe United States Department of Defense is looking for a Personal Staff for the newly promoted Cadet General. The Cadet General is the highest ranking cadet int the world as well as senior to all enlisted and warrant officers in the military.
ResponsibilitiesChief Of Staff: In general, a chief of staff provides a buffer between a chief executive (a CEO of a corporation or even the President of the US) and that executive's direct-reporting team. The chief of staff generally works behind the scenes to solve problems, mediate disputes, and deal with issues before they bubble up to the Chief Executive. Lots of politics, egos, and issues to deal with. Often times Chiefs of Staff act as a confidante and advisor to the Chief Executive, acting as a sounding board for ideas. Ultimately the actual duties depend on the actual position and the people involved.
