Powell Lawson Creatives needs a rock star virtual assistant to complete administrative, research, social media and some basic writing tasks. The ideal candidate needs an anal, creative, friendly, go-getter, hardworking, honest personality. PLC needs a virtual assistant with specific traits, including: detailed-oriented, follows instructions, loves cats, punctual, organized, and well scheduled. The candidate we hire should have the following vital skills: appointment setting, basic copywriting, e-mail correspondence prowess, fact checking, great grammar, journalism, proposal writing, research, scheduling, social media management, web analytics and basic web design. It rocks if you know AP style and either Chicago or Turabian, but neither of the latter is a must.
The right candidate for PLC has either a Bachelor's degree or is in his/her senior year of college. Candidates need at least one year experience in each skill. (We count internships.)
You work from wherever you live or travel. All communication takes place here in Upwork. You'll speak with PLC on at least a weekly basis, but be on your own otherwise. You may not sub-contract any work assigned by PLC. We hire you. You do the work. We have set methods and procedures for social media management and correspondence. You may use your own appropriate, legal research and writing methods for blogs. You set your hours, but you must meet all deadlines. Our clients depend on us for that. PLC is widely known for its 24-hour turnaround on short creative pieces. We take on work from many major publicists and public relations firms throughout the world. You must a "don't blink" mentality and a never freak attitude over the clients. Also, you'll sign a confidentiality agreement that applies to every assignment or piece of communication from or through PLC legally mandating that you do not discuss or share in any way one iota of its or its clients information. Our creative products range widely and you should read our (in the works) Web site for more information (creatives.powelllawson.com). Until about 3 years ago, PLC functioned under multiple smaller firms, all owned by the same individual, Carlie Lawson. Lawson remains sole owner of those firms, now organized under Powell Lawson Creatives and Powell Lawson Consulting. Since reorganizing smaller companies like TechGrrl Services and Design Girl under a single umbrella, PLC has grown. We're hiring a rock star to keep growing.
Please, apply with a formal cover letter, resume, three references and please, include in a natural way in the cover letter the name of Miss Lawson's cat to show you did your due diligence research before applying.
