Part-time job opportunity

An Edison-based company, where former church member Lois Hines works, is looking for a part-time (approximately 25 hours per week) executive assistant.

The job entails administrative and editorial work. It can be a remote (work from home) position; the applicant does not need to live in the Edison/Metuchen area. The role requires organizational, computer, and writing skills. Familiarity with the Zoom virtual platform would be a plus. The company is hoping to fill the position by the end of November/early December, although the start date is negotiable.

Lois has worked for the company for almost 10 years and can answer most questions. Please reach out to her at lois@weidenbaumdevelopment.com if you are interested or know of any potential candidates.
