Healthy relationships break out worldwide (East Village)


You might be thinking, healthy relationships breakout world wide? Is this a joke! Oh no, it’s not! I’m a relationship coach with a web-business based in the East Village. I also give lectures and workshops. I work with singles and couples around the world using a very unique approach to the challenges of relationships. Over the last year, I have been presenting my work at a top rated high school in Manhattan. The program is ready to go on a larger scale and will likely become newsworthy in the process. This is an exciting position for someone who has good writing and research skills as we will be exploring and making sense of one of the most challenging areas of life. We spent 12 years in school preparing for a good job. How much time was spent preparing for a healthy relationship?

You must be able blog as that is a significant part of the job, but I am also putting up content on the website and if you can maintain and update the website that’s a plus as well as putting together email announcements using Photoshop. There are also research and writing projects.

The job includes assisting with email correspondence, helping to maintain and update spreadsheets containing client information, typing, and generally helping with organization. You must be able to type a minimum of 75 wpm.

The skills I seek in an assistant include knowledge of Microsoft office programs, including Word, Excel, and Outlook, an ability to easily grasp software dealing with internet marketing (e.g. constantcontact.com), and a strong attention to detail. The qualities that are essential are punctuality, patience, and a good nature. Are you a self starter? If so continue reading.

1. Please attach your resume as a Word document

2. Include a brief paragraph that addresses the specifics of this posting.

3. You must also include how many words you type per minute.

4. Please put something eye-catching in the subject heading, so I know you’ve actually read the entire ad. Otherwise, your application will not be considered.

The job involves multiple projects so you must be focused and accountable. Again only self-starters need apply. The office is spacious, clean and gets good light. Dress is casual and the atmosphere is relaxed even though this ad is quite complex. There’s a working kitchen as well.

Until funding arrives it’s $10 per hour to start. 15-20 hours a week. Times and days are flexible.

Great opportunity for students and anyone who wants to become part of a developing project that’s exciting and meaningful.
