- Extremely detail-oriented; prefer to complete tasks carefully + accurately, and double (or triple) check everything to ensure there are no mistakes.
- The opposite of a procrastinator; you would much rather complete tasks way before the deadline than be rushing to finish them at the last minute.

- Exceptional written and spoken English skills; native or fluent speaker
- Excellent verbal processing skills; able to quickly and easily turn spoken instructions into written text or into a to-do list of specific tasks to complete

- Good eye for design; enjoy making an effort to create things that are beautiful and functional
- Excited by the idea of being part of a small, growing business that has a positive impact on the lives of students and their families, and helps young adults in reaching their full potential (You’d love to feel like your work is making a difference in the world!)
