You have:

  • A flexible, open approach to work. You thrive building clear efficiencies in unstructured environments. You approach your career like a journey, taking on any and all tasks with zero ego, learning what you love – and crushing it.
  • An obsession with details. Typo? Where? What? Not you. You’re obsessed with noticing the details that contribute to success, whether you’re drafting an email, pulling a report, creating an event registration page or making sure the setup of an event feels right. You tune in to how the parts affect the whole and how small details contribute to a successful experience.
  • Experience working quickly. You thrive moving a million miles a minute. You’ve worked in a part time role or internship where you had to turn in work on tight deadlines in an environment focused on quality.
  • Grace under pressure. You’re comfortable with balancing acts, managing multiple executive schedules and projects with tact and enthusiasm. You have zero ego; entering each project with an open mind and a series of good, thoughtful questions that gather you the information you need to be successful.
  • An x-factor. You have prior experience in a part time role or internship where you focused on event planning, sales, customer service, journalism, social media, teaching or something else entirely. We’re less impressed by the ‘what’ and more by the ‘how.’ When we invite you in for an interview, you won’t rattle off brand names where you had a role. Instead, you’ll focus on detailing projects you contributed to in a way only you could.
