What I am looking for is very special for

If you consider yourself to be Sharp, Proactive with projects, with a high level of Organization, Communication, and Computer skills I am looking for you!

I am in need of a Executive Assistant to take our company into the future. While my business changes throughout the year and promotional & operations staff is hired as needed I am always in need of a right hand person who can wear many hats, and change responsibilities as needed.

This is a remote position, we might go weeks without seeing each other and most likely we will only plan to work side by side once a week from a coffee house or restaurant since I work from a home office myself.

The hours for this position will grow, they will most likely start out at 5-10 hours a week for the first couple weeks to make sure we can work well together. After that 15-20 hours a week, and if possible 20-40 as I would like this position to grow into Executive Officer!

Pay is $20 an hour with profit sharing if the position becomes continual.

Some of the projects you will be working on:

* Client Relations- (Taking dictated notes and contacting clients)
* Client Management- (Creating reports, invoices, inventory)
* Placing hiring ads and reviewing contractors
* Compiling client hours & contractor payroll
* Auditing contractor projects for quality
* Business Development- (Researching contacts for specific leads)
* Managing administrative contractors (Sales, Operations, etc)

PLEASE REPLY WITH- Why you feel like this would be a good fit for you?

We will be working very close together and have daily contact most likely so it is important I find the right person! I am sure you also want to see if I would be a good fit to work with you. I would love to set up a call and after that a in person meeting.

Thank you for your time!!!!

The Executive Assistant (DEFINED)

Executive assistants aren't put off by uncertainty. They can take an unclear assignment and actually figure out, within certain boundaries, how to make it work. They can handle tasks that are sketched out instead of being engineered out.

Engineered assignments - the kinds of assignments with which administrative assistants feel most comfortable - are really well processed-through. The necessary steps are laid out clearly in advance.
By contrast, when you give an executive assistant a sketched-out assignment, you'll usually say something like,  "Here's what I'm trying to accomplish. Here are a couple of variables at play. Here are some things you might want to take under consideration. You figure the rest out."

Executive assistant are highly autonomous; they just need help understanding the context of your requests. They need a certain base amount of information to help them make good decisions on your behalf. They need you to communicate your expectations and preferences.

For instance, when it comes to travel, you'll want to let them know under which conditions you like to upgrade to a higher class of airplane service, what kind of hotels you like and what kinds of neighborhoods you prefer to stay in.
That context can also go much deeper. For my part, I like to have my executive assistant inside my inbox. Partly that's helpful because it reduces the number of emails I need to handle: if I get a hundred emails a day, I'd say that my executive assistant handles, redistributes, or deletes about fifty to seventy of them.

But having them there is also helpful because they see the context of my business. Because they know what I'm working on and with whom, they can make better decisions about who should get meetings with me. For instance, if they see that I'm exchanging a lot of emails with Joe about a particular project and then Joe asks for a meeting and says that it needs to happen before a certain deadline, they can determine that the project is really important to me and that the meeting probably is too. So they will take the initiative to set up that meeting for me and just drop me a note to the effect that, "Joe said he really needed to meet with you in advance of this deadline, so I fit him in for half an hour, from 2:45 to 3:15."

Executive assistants can really help you leverage your time, just so long as you give them good context.
