Philosophy Behind our Working Arrangement
(A note from our owner, Corie Farnsley)
This is a part-time position, but it is a fully professional one. I expect our new hire to have a strong work ethic, be committed to professional ethics and have a desire to do her or his best work.
Those applying for this position must WANT to work part-time. Candidates who plan to immediately or continually looking for a "real," full-time job while employed by CorComm Creative should not apply.
If the applicant plans to hold another job simultaneously, that job should not be for another company providing communications, writing, graphic design or website services.
A working parent is ideal for this position, as is a professional with other desires and commitments outside of work.
As a working mother myself, I understand that parenthood must sometimes trump the working world. Kids get sick. Appointments must sometimes be scheduled at less-than-ideal times. Field-trip chaperoning opportunities occur on regularly scheduled work days.
That's all understandable! And we'll work around those commitments. Flexible scheduling is one of the best things about working here.
However, it is also important for me to be able to count on my staff to be available and committed to working a minimum number of hours per week. Ideally, one will work a predictable schedule in the office, with occasional exceptions.
In addition, I require a certain number of documented billable hours per week.
Productivity, passion and work ethic are essential. If you fit the bill, please apply!
I thank you for considering this opportunity and look forward to hearing from you!
