For the past 17 years, Iâ€™ve worked full time as a content manager for an educational publishing company. I recently left that role to pursue a more flexible and part-time career that will better suit my family and personal needs. The Ollin Group mission really resonated with me because Iâ€™m on a mission to make positive changes in both my personal and professional life, beginning with a better work-life balance, and Iâ€™m excited by the resources and support that your company offers.
As youâ€™ll see in my resume, I have a pretty diverse educational background with many years of editorial experience and web-based content management. I have skills in writing, copy-editing, and proofreading, as well as research and general project management in a deadline-driven environment. Iâ€™m a proactive leader and I thrive on getting things done accurately and efficiently. I also have a background in psychology, which I feel might be useful in this role.
I see from the job description that you pride yourself on having a creative mind with somewhat of a weakness in grammar and spelling. I, on the other hand, am the exact oppositeâ€”I donâ€™t particularly love to write (though I can) and creativity is not exactly my strong suit, but I do love to read and edit.
Iâ€™m very interested in learning more about this role. Aside from my professional interest, I think I would very much enjoy reading this content on a personal level. I see that the post says this is a part-time position, which works well for me, so Iâ€™d like to learn more about the hours expected, as well as the expectations in terms of scheduling requirements.
Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon!
