You will be joining my other executive assistant in doing the 101 tasks I don't have time for. This will be everything from writing marketing competitive analysis, to web research, to boring repetitive tasks in XL, to creating powerpoint presentations, to video editing, to transcribing. You will be doing the occasional sales call, in particular inviting special guests to come onto my TV show. You might even be asked to interview some special guests yourself. You will also be responsible for the management my team of 20 staff on odesk, so teamwork and leadership skills are important.

To prove you actually read this job description and aren't just applying to every job that looks good...... to be given an interview you MUST (no exceptions) provide a 300 word answer to the following question.

What is the difference between a good marketing campaign and a great marketing campaign?

Interview will be on skype, so you need a working microphone.

Very nice to meet you.... and I look forward to our interview.
