Internet Assistant Needed – Thrifty Thursday

by on June 25, 2009

assistantI need an assistant. Come to think of it, don’t we all? Imagine all the projects you could complete if you had an assistant. Imagine all the mundane and annoying tasks you could pass off to him or her so that you could focus on the stuff you want to do. Well, are you willing to pay for it? Because, I am.

So, here’s the deal. I’m looking to hire an assistant to help me with various project that I have underway. Now, the job will pay $10 an hour, but it will NOT be full time. At best, it might be part-part-time. Basically, if you’re looking to make a little side dough to take you guy or gal out on a date night, or to buy a new game for you Wii, then this is for you.

So, here’s what I’m looking for:

  • Computer and internet savvy
  • Strong knowledge of WordPress
  • Basic knowledge of Microsoft Excel
  • Ability to navigate websites and find specific information
  • Preferably a Mac user
  • Knowledge and efficiency in editing images

Right now I have two projects that need to be done and, depending on your performance and my ability to come up with more projects, there will be more work down the road. For my projects I will give you details on what I want done and a realistic deadline for completion. Within those bounds you’re welcome to work when and how you want.

So, if this sounds intriguing and you’d like to be considered for the job, send an email to Make the subject: I can COpy and Paste. In the email, all I want you to include is 2 sentences telling me why I should hire you and one link to any seminary that is on twitter (the link should go to their twitter page).

So, there you have it. It isn’t exactly a thrifty tip for everyone, but it might put a few bucks in someone’s pocket.
