The tasks involve the following:
1. Using 4 research portals including: LinkedIn (especially for Creative Agencies and Professional Organizations); Craigslist (especially for Creative Agencies and Professional Organizations); Idealist (especially for Non-Profit, Research and Higher Education); Chronicle (especially for Research and Higher Education).
I'm interested in jobs that fall into 4 categories: Creative Agencies: like VIVA Creative in Washington, D.C.; Hip technology-savvy companies like: LivingSocial or FiscalNote; Non-profit organizations (as long as they meet my salary requirements), especially those pertaining to research, education or social entrepreneurship like Ashoka; and Non-teaching positions within Colleges and Universities like Director of the Social Entrepreneurship program at the University of Maryland, College Park. Basically, I'm interested in creative opportunities, research opportunities, business development opportunities, non-profit opportunities and directorial higher education opportunities.

6. Note, some positions must be applied to directly through an online job portal. In that case, please keep a record of which companies you applied to through a job portal, not via e-mail in an excel sheet.
7. Also, create profiles for me on career matching sites: Hired and Jopwell. These sites are "career matchmaker" agencies.
The thing is, the positions that I'm applying for require extremely professional looking resume's and cover letters. A typo means you will not be considered. So, I need someone who is meticulous and hard-working.
