Intellext.com is considering hiring Jeeves to help its own search tool, Watson, and is asking folks to vote on what the butlers duties would be if he should take the job.
Intellext CEO Alan Wasserberger isnt sure if Jeeves is ready to resume being a corporate icon because the Ask.com gig got him away from his butlering skills.
As he puts it, He always knew what his boss needed before but wasnt proactive. For a while, he just sat there on the website waiting for someone to tell him what to do.
Wasserberger thinks Jeeves might be a good intern and would consider hiring him as a receptionist IF hes willing to lose the suit.
If Intellext doesnt hire Jeeves, Wasserberger says Jeeves might be able to find work with Google China since hes used to being told what to do.
