What it’s like to work here

We work hard to be great at our jobs. We’re passionate about what we do and why we do it. We love the entrepreneurial spirit of our growing company that encourages all of us to show initiative and to find our own ways to make an impact. And none of us needs an arm twisted to attend the annual company meet up. We all want to be there when we raise our glasses and toast to how hard we’ve worked, how many kids we’ve helped, and how we plan to get even better next year.

So, that’s us. We’ve created a place where we can work hard, be creative, and have our voices heard. If we sound like the kind of place you might like to work, we would love to hear from you.

If your interest is piqued, get to know us a little better on our website at collegewise.com. Find out more about what we do, who you’d be working with, and what we believe. If you like what you read and think you could find a professional home here, please email a résumé and cover letter [email protected], and use the subject line, “Executive Assistant: Orange County.”

An effective cover letter should help us get to know who you really are. Don’t be afraid to be yourself—smart, thoughtful, or maybe even funny. Just don’t be generic.

This position starts at $30-33K depending on experience, with room for future growth in both salary and responsibility. We’d like new hires to start in January of 2017, but we will adjust the start date to accommodate the right person. If you have questions about the job, please email us at the above address rather than call us. We promise to respond to you quickly.
Thanks for reading our post. We’d love to hear from you, but if we don’t, we hope you find the perfect professional fit someplace else.
