The idea of leaving the dishes in the sink to “soak" until tomorrow drives you nuts.  In an effort to exceed client expectations and gain trust, a sense of urgency is crucial for this position.  You must be able to manage a number of tasks, and intuitively determine the order of priority.


You believe direct (but respectful) communication is both efficient and necessary to keep things moving.  Your writing and verbal communication is intentional and has a very specific purpose. In general, you strive to provide clarity for the other party you are communicating with.


You use tools to track your to-do’s and calendar appointments. You know the importance of time management when working against multiple deadlines. You focus on both the big picture AND the little picture. You use proper grammar and punctuation when communicating via various text-based methods. You are excited about a career that lets you work on numerous fast-paced projects simultaneously because you have the organizational skills to handle it.


You have never needed someone to “check-in with you.” You are driven by accomplishment and creativity. You are willing to pay your dues and invest heavily in your own career and development. You want to be the primary variable in your own success and fully understand that success will only come through hard work combined with an environment that is completely supportive, flexible, and enabling.


Good teams make you better and you make good teams better. You have experienced the magic of participating in a real team setting and accomplishing something great. There is no job too big or too small as long as it is in support of the team and a common goal. You find enjoyment and fulfillment in mentoring others. You want to work in a place where everyone is on the same team and celebrates each other’s successes and supports each other through failures.
