I am in the process of starting up my speaking practice and am in need of someone to assist me with landing new clients.
This job posting is to find someone reliable that can work with me for 10 to 20 hours a week.
You will need to have good writing skills and you need to be very fluent in English. Any past experience in working with speakers will be an added advantage.
You will be presented with a few tasks to hand in with your application for this job. If you are successful, this job will be the trial run in which you need to secure three (3) clients. These 3 clients will need to have paid a deposit of 50% for this job to be considered complete. You will have two days to do this in. It is a tough task and if you are successful in it, we can move on to a permanent basis.
You will have access to an email address on my domain. You will also have access to a SIP account on my PBX for use in calling clients. Attached is a flyer that details a bit more about what I speak about and offer my clients.
My country is South Africa so bear in mind that the time zone is GMT+2 and that most businesses here have working hours from 8am to 5pm so you will need to be available for a portion of this time.
Now for your application. I need you to answer these three questions. When you submit your application you need to answer one question in writing, one in audio (mp3) and one in video (mp4, mov, flv etc). I will leave it up to you to decide which question to submit in which format.
Question #1: Do you set goals for yourself? If so, how do you set goals and explain why you set them in this method. If you do not set goals, explain why not.
Question #2: How would you go about to find potential clients for this job and how you would close the deal on it? Are you prepared to call clients and speak to them on the phone?
Question #3: Why should I consider you to join myself? What do you think you can bring to the table? What hobbies do you enjoy etc? Essentially tell me more about yourself as a person. Do you have a family?
I am looking for serious candidates only that are willing to make this an adventure and are in it for the long haul. I want people that will go the extra mile to get the job done. I want motivated individuals that are prepared to work with me for the foreseeable future.
