Now that your dreams of buying MGM are over, it’s time to set your sights on a different profession – but you don’t want to leave the world of film. Luckily for you, a position just opened up with the MPAA that might pique your interest.

According to Variety, Dan Glickman will be vacating the post he’s held for 6 years as Chairman and CEO to become president of the displacement advocacy and aid group Refugees International. Glickman presided over the MPAA during the height of internet piracy, watching it become a full blown migraine for the film and music business.

I’m sure you have a pretty comparable resume. Mail it in to:

Office of the Chairman and CEO
1600 Eye Street, NW
Washington, DC 20006
