My beloved assistant, Cindy, is retiring after 7 years of top-notch customer support. She’s going to be hard to replace, but as I would advise any of my clients after a relationship ends, I’m staying positive and proactive about moving on. That’s why I’m writing to you.
I’m looking for a responsible, dedicated person who combines the warm, patient demeanor of a concierge (to best serve our clients), moderate command of technology (to best serve the business), and the communication skills of a therapist (to best deal with me.)
You will be working behind the scenes to ensure that my business runs smoothly and that my private clients are handled with the utmost care and delicacy.
You should have a disciplined work ethic, an eye for detail, and the desire to both learn from mistakes and suggest improvements to our existing systems.
The ideal candidate is on the West Coast, preferably Los Angeles, so we can meet in person, but I’m open to the possibility that you’re in a different time zone.
This is a part-time position that begins with 10 hours per month but has the potential to develop into a full-time position if you have the ability to expand your duties and demonstrate your value to the company over time.
- My calendar and administrative duties
- Private client support
- Sorting through and choosing questions for my blog.
- Managing e-Cyrano writers and workflow.
- Potentially helping to moderate an online community of women.
- Customer testimonials
If you’re interested, please fill out the questionnaire below. Based on your answers, we’ll move on to the interview process which begins immediately.
Once we hire, you’ll get trained by my current assistant from April 23-April 27th and then we’ll start with 4-week paid “honeymoon” period on April 30th. By this point, we should have a regular working rhythm, and we’ll know how well we work together.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and for your thoughtful response.
I look forward to getting to know you and building a close personal and working relationship with you over the years.
Warmest wishes and much love,
