Are you looking to see what startup life is like from the inside--and you're willing to do just about anything to get a foot in the door? A very cool early stage startup is looking for a Chief of Staff--someone whose mantra will be "I can help with that." You'll need a strong work ethic, great organizational skills, a knack for details--but probably most importantly, a high EQ. You'll often be called upon to research things, to find out the best practices that other startups use, and to make tasks now being done by the founder your own. If you're interested, please send a description of what people in your life count on you for, 3-5 examples of when you've taken on things you didn't know how to do, something you've learned recently, and two references to email@example.com. "Chief of Staff" must be in the subject line otherwise it will not be looked at.
A very creative retail/commerce founder friend of mine is looking for a new gig. She's incredibly hard working, has a sharp eye for consumer preferences and branding. Most importantly, she knows what it is like to own a business and run it--so she treats everything she does like an owner, not just an employee. This could be everything from setting up a pop-up shop, working with outside agencies, pitching, selling--she's a great communicator and connector.
