This is a full-time, permanent position available to individuals eligible for the Graduate Student program.
In this busy environment you will be required to diplomatically and clearly answer telephones, handle inquiries and forward messages. The majority of your time will be spent on data-entry, but you will enjoy a myriad of tasks that include, but will not be limited to filing, photocopying, creating correspondence, and checking the mail. You will be expected to take initiative, be independent, request assistance whenever necessary, and show up for work.
You will be required to work in a professional manner. You will know how to use 'spell check' and/or a dictionary. You will know the difference between 'Board' and 'bored', or 'there' and 'their', 'cent' and 'sent' or - well, if you don't, you will ask before you forward any such correspondence. You will not submit or offer sub-standard work and hope that nobody wil notice.
You will not keep your cell phone next to your keyboard whereupon you may send text messages to boy/girlfriends, parents, siblings, friends, ex-friends and ex-boy/girlfriends on a continuous basis. You will not pout if you are told to turn the cellphone off.
You will not spend six hours a day 'creeping' your friends on Facebook, nor will you make numerous phone calls to your boy/girlfriends, parents, siblings, friends, ex-friends and ex-boy/girlfriends - unless a true emergency is upon you.
You will not expect any co-worker to cater to you in the event of a headache, tummy ache or toothache. You will not bring a heating pad to the office in case your belly hurts. You will stay home if you're sick, and come to work if you're not.
And you will enjoy working in a small, casual office, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday thru Friday, where we understand the value of integrity, diligence and hard work.
Please apply if you are looking for and would like to spend some time in a stress-free entry-level position - notwithstanding the above limitations, of course.
