Virtual Assistant Job Description
Hi, I'm Dr. Shannon Wong Lerner, Communication Coach / Consultant & Cultural / Digital Storyteller focused on helping diverse professionals with career-related and other communication needs. I provide 1-1 services to a variety of different early to late-career clients within multiple industries including but not limited to government, finance and banking, the food industry, academia, the arts, counseling, IT/Tech, health and medicine, the sciences–and beyond. I have exciting new projects in the works–so many that I need to find some good people to join my team.
I am looking for a Virtual Assistant who can proficiently complete the following duties:
🌈 Blog management including image editing and formatting
🌈 Social media scheduling and management
🌈 Graphic design for social media and other promotional posts using Canva
🌈 Produce, and if needed, edit podcast videos, audio, and promotional material
🌈 Transcribe audio files and make sure they match the recordings
🌈 Light administrative work related to scheduling, customer service, accounting and lead generation, sales
🌈 Familiarity with ZOOM, MS Word, Excel, Google Docs, and Canva and enough technical skills to help troubleshoot a tech problem
This is a part-time role (independent contractor, to start) that reports directly to Dr. Shannon. It is a remote, work-from-home position. The hourly rate is $20 an hour. With up to 25 hours a month.
This position will also require flexibility, including working occasional evenings and weekends. Additionally, I run several events and/or live courses each year which will require your attendance online.
WHO I AM
Dr. Shannon Wong Lerner is a solo entrepreneur who has run her heart-centered communication business since 2016.
My mission is to empower diverse professionals as communicators, thought leaders, writers, and speakers. I help clients who seek entry into graduate school, a new job, to enter a new industry, to receive a promotion, and to level up to become industry leaders. I consider myself to be a unicorn because I don't know of another queer BIPOC / API communication coach / consultant who provides a full-service ONE STOP SHOP for diverse people. I know what it's like to be silenced. And to feel invisible in the academic and professional world. It is my life's calling to share what I've learned in the last 20 years. But I can't do it alone. I seek another unicorn to help me continue this work.
SEARCHING FOR A UNICORN 🦄
I am looking for a highly motivated, curious, hard-working, virtual assistant who prides themselves on being a good communicator, detail-oriented, and a self-starter. If you believe in my efforts and think your core values and skill set fit with the goals and aims of my business. Contact me. I would love to hear from you.
My mission is to empower all diverse people including but not limited to: BIPOC, API, LGBTQIA+, genderqueer, non-binary, and trans individuals. And most especially I am always inclusive of BIPOC / API genderqueer, non-binary, and trans voices.
If you are interested in this position, send me:
🦄 a cover letter,
🦄 a resume,
both no more than 2 pages each,
🦄 and explain why you would like to work for me.
🦄 And how your experience makes you a good fit.
🦄 Send your best examples of the digital work I've listed in the "duties" section including blogs, podcasts, etc.
