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.

Article – Transcription Outsourcing

Outsourcing is not something new. In fact, this has been common practices among businesses for years, but with the increasing number of businesses sending work overseas, and our economy in a declining state, are we being robbed of our jobs?

When I say robbed, of course, I don’t mean in the physical sense, but it’s really sad when a transcriptionist who made $.08 cents per line more than 20 years ago is now being offered the same if not less to work today. Depending on what side of the fence you’re on will determine how you look at the situation. If you are a company trying to stay in business you have two choices – offer lower rates or go out of business – BUT, you can send your work outside of the country and for mere pennies a day, you can get your work completed and returned.

I’m all for trying to cut costs to stay afloat, but there are two major concerns with this. One, is my private information being sent across the seas for any and everyone to see, and two, why are those left jobless being offered editing work to correct the mistakes for a measly 2-3 cents per line? Is it really cost-effective when you have to pay someone to transcribe and then pay someone to edit and has quantity surpassed quality here in the U.S.?

On the other side of the fence, we can’t blame workers overseas for trying to make a living. If the shoe were on the other foot, I’m quite sure we all would be dancing a jig and thankful for the abundance of work coming our way. It’s not like they said, “Give me all your work right now, or else.”

I do have to say that there are quality workers overseas and the stereotype that people in foreign countries have no skills is in fact just the opposite. Just as with any geographical location, you have a mixture of those that can and those that try. My argument is with those companies who suddenly have no work and without notice, you no longer have a job. Why? Because they are secretly sending work overseas. This has been a big debate in the transcription world and many have expressed their disgust with the situation in private and public forums. What do you do in a situation like this? Do you keep quiet and pray that your job isn’t eliminated even if you are making half of what you use to? Do you demand hire pay rates and talk yourself out of a job? You do what most people are doing and leaving the field completely because they cannot possibly make a decent living unless they are glued to their computer praying for jobs to come up so they can grab them before anyone else does.

This is a serious problem and it appears there is no simple solution in sight.

Let’s keep the transcription here in the U.S. SERVICES AVAIL.
