Want to be hired by Donald Trump’s business empire? It could cost you.

For the next week, you can bid on a summer internship with the Trump Organization, which carries an estimated value of $100,000, according to a listing on CharityBuzz.

The internship will give a well-heeled recipient the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to answer phones, run errands, and do administrative work for the Trump Organization starting in June.

The intern also gets 15-minute sit-downs with Trump and each of his oldest children, Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr., to “pick their brains about how to be successful in the real estate & business world.”

The current highest bid for the internship was $40,000. While the listing says the role is paid, it wasn’t clear how much the intern would earn during the 10-week program.

Among the usual job requirements, the intern “must be comfortable working in close proximity & communicating effectively with high-net worth [sic] and/or high-profile individuals,” the listing said.

The proceeds from the auction will go to the Eric Trump Foundation to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
