Please read this section carefully. Compared to some other Assistant jobs you may see, this job is more fast-paced with an emphasis on making many phone calls, plus a variety of errands and random tasks mixed in. We are a small company, so there is less of an emphasis and need for much time spent on organization, paperwork, etc. The more frequent the task, the more the ability to do that task is valued in a candidate.

The approximate frequency for each type of task is listed below:
