Want Ads, Part II

Here's a little tidbit: The poor soul who replaced me at my last job has already been shown the door. I hear he lasted a little over two weeks.

Thus, the search continues. Following is the latest Craigslist posting. If you'd like to see the previous ad, to see how this job has evolved, click here:

Experienced Personal/Administrative Assistant needed for 2-person office. Ideal candidate must be professional, have superior computer skills (ability to trouble-shoot, work with constant contact, databases and outlook, update websites, organize email blasts), superior writing and editing skills, positive attitude, self-starter, and experienced in assisting executive level positions (a must). Obsession with organization and attention to detail big plus. In addition, must have knowledge of an entire office operation from ordering supplies, handling phones, fixing the copier, maintaining electronic filing systems and resource libraries, to being the contact for building emergencies.

Candidates must have over 5 years experience as a personal/executive/administrative assistant. Must be able to work independently (owner travels extensively), take initiative on determining what needs to get done, high level of understanding how to prioritize, and sincere appreciation of supporting a small office team. Abundance of common sense required. Marketing experience a plus.

We are only looking for serious applicants who are willing to put in the extra effort in helping a small business grow. No two days are alike. Superior customer skills are a must. Individuals who are immature and need a lot of direction and recognition need not apply. This job is for the experienced only; individuals who understand a personal errand is as valuable as meeting a deadline and have the wisdom to prioritize.

If you think you meet the above qualifications/requirements, enjoy assisting fast-paced individuals with tendencies of "Devil Wears Prada", then this might be the new home for you.

Please have at minimum bachelors degree. For the right individual, we are willing to be flexible on schedule.

Only serious apply. Position available by the end of July.

Send cover letter, salary history and resume. PLEASE, only apply if you meet above requirements. Thank you.

  • Location: Long Beach
  • Compensation: $35,000 + Bonus depending on company growth
Maybe the posting should say simply: Servant wanted, other professional duties may be requested.

*Health benefits appear to be gone, too.
