I'm looking for a smart, organized, proactive, web-savvy personal assistant with excellent writing and communication skills to free up my time and allow me to effectively pursue my life's mission: providing education tools, software, and services that positively impact the lives of millions.
I'm the CEO of a large online education firm based in New York City. Due to the growth of my business, I have about 300X more to do than I'm capable of doing in a single day.
I'm looking for a full-time "right hand" that will allow me to spend all of my time on strategy, product development, and writing. Tasks will include everything from editing my articles, managing my calendar, and optimizing my new published books on Amazon Kindle to managing web projects, overseeing design of new software initiatives, and arranging dinner reservations and networking opportunities. The only specific skill required: the ability to rapidly and proactively learn about any new project or skill when assigned.
The job will be roughly 40-50 hours a week, sometimes more, sometimes less, and largely project based. I need excellent web skills, fantastic writing skills, and a level of organization that will eventually anticipate my needs before I even know I have them.
This position will offer enormous opportunity for growth, learning, and training. Expect to gain significant expertise in marketing, education, web development, and more. I will provide extensive training and around-the-clock support. I'm looking to spend years or perhaps decades with whoever fills this position. Enormous opportunity for long-term prospects, salary and responsibility growth, and more.
This job will begin with a two-week trial period to see if there is a good fit.
Please send your traditional resume and questions along with the following:
1. A letter explaining why, in 300-400 words, you feel you would make the best possible personal assistant for an extremely busy CEO in the web and education space.
2. An example of three things you've done to enhance someone else's productivity or improve a project by at least 3X.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
