VA for International Career Coach: You will help me with my fast-growing USA based coaching business (200+ clients)
Salary Type: Monthly
English - speaking English - writing
I need you to keep me on track.
I am an international career coach and owner of CareerNerds (www.CareerNerds.com) and have coached 200+ executive clients over the past 2 years.
Although I live in Prague, I work only with USA clients, since I grew up in the U.S.
I show my clients how to take control of their next career move through 3 phases: 1) Focus 2) Personal Branding and 3) Networking
For example, I've helped 15 clients get jobs during the worst economic downturn in USA, April-June 2020.
I know what to do to grow my brand and reach. I have lots of content to share, I am creative and constantly come up with new ideas.
However, I am not the best when it comes to structure, organization, repeating tasks and finishing projects. Especially routine, tech issues and details distract me and slow me down.
Will you help me reach as many people as we can, by helping me create structure to share my content, execute my ideas, message my clients and future clients, move things forward and pay attention to the details?
I need a person who delivers the content I create, who executes the standard tasks that need to be done, who follows up on the things I put into motion. I need you!
When I can concentrate on the areas where I have most added value, I can perform miracles and share my insights with the world. But I can only do this when I have somebody besides me who excels in the areas where I lack, so we can do miracles together.
I write my own content (LinkedIn posts, messages, videos, newsletters), so you do not need to do any content creation/writing yourself, but good English and great communication skills are essential.
You’ll be a valued team member of my small team supporting me in delivering great content to my followers. My remote team consists of 2 VAs that do my LinkedIn Lead Generation, video editor and a designer, so you’ll have lots of support and we hire specialists where needed.
You will be the first full time person in my team, working with me long term to grow and develop my business. There is room for growth in your role, too, as we expand and work together.
This job post and the application process are very detailed, because I am serious about my business, this job, finding the right person and the best match. I assume you want to know what you are getting into as well.
