That's right, as reported yesterday, the star analyst, wife of a wrestler and head of her eponymous advisory group is interested in you -- if, that is, you'd like a job in security analysis.

Whitney, who previously revealed plans to start a ratings agency to rival (and eventually cream) S&P and Moody's, has now revealed -- through a business plan available on the Fortune website -- several details of the plan, such as "hiring up to 650 analysts at an average salary of $225,000," which trumps the $215,000 per year that Moody's pays its analysts.

As for Whitney's selling point to potential clients, her business plan states that her "reputation has not been tarnished by the credit crisis" (an obvious dig aimed at S&P and Moody's for stamping their approval on some extremely shady securities) and that her "brand is associated as [sic] being early to identify risks and protecting investors" (a well-played nod to her own highly-publicized call back in 2007 that Citigroup was about to nosedive).

Again, if you think you have what it takes to work under Whitney, and consider yourself to be an "intelligent, passionate, self-starter," you can apply online here via the Meredith Whitney Advisory Group website.
