We are looking another assistant (we hired one a few days ago) to do various tasks on an exciting new project.
Tasks would include:
i) Research (mainly internet) and then explain findings
ii) Hiring and managing other oDeskers if necessary
iii) Other routine tasks including talking to people via Skype
In your covering letter please tell us:
a) What hours do you want to work? Do you want to work weekends? Do you have any part-time job or any significant freelance jobs?
b) Why are you looking for work on oDesk? Are you a full-time freelancer or have you recently resigned from or lost your job? Are you staying at home to look after your kids?
c) Where do you want to be in one year's time? What kind of pay do you expect to be earning?
d) Please tell us how good you are at maths. If there were 9 other people chosen randomly do you think you'd be best at maths? 2nd best? 3rd best? ....9th best? Worst? (Be honest as we'll test you).
e) Your skype ID and whether you have a working headphone.
We are not sure if this is a long-term position but we are hoping it turns out to be.
