FL, FORT LAUDERDALE – ASCA National Office – 2 Administrative Positions (with some coaching on the side) – Listed 05/16/2017

2 Administrative Positions (Part Time On-Deck Coaching Also Possible)
FLORIDA, FORT LAUDERDALE
ASCA National Office
Listed May 16, 2017

The ASCA national office is seeking to enhance the quality of our member and partner services with the addition of two new positions.  (Pardon the lack of TITLES on these positions – we’re opening the front doors of the bus and looking to get the right people on board.  Right people first, titles second.)

The first position is for an incredibly detail oriented person – and we’re not just saying it:  we mean it — details, details, details.  If you have a provable history of near OCPD attention to details and you possess a “serve rather than be served” approach to your work then we would like to hear from you.

The second position requires a different personality type:  it’s about sales.  It’s about providing our advertisers, sponsors, and partners with what they need and without the used car salesman’s pitch or the faux Madison Avenue shallow and insincere rhetoric.  Our partners are long term, and they are down to earth people, and they trust us, and we care for them.  We learn their needs, we find solutions, we provide world class service.  If you have people skills, and excellent sales skills, and a resume with RESULTS rather than activity then we want to hear from you.

Because we are a small office, titles don’t mean a lot.  We all work at everything from stuffing envelopes to major project planning, follow through, and earned results.  We have office hours of 8 – 5 but on just about any day you’re going to find people here before 6 AM and after 6 PM.

Also, if you love to coach we have a part time coaching position available.  It’s a small local USAS swimming team of ages 6 through high school aged swimmers that is coach owned and run for love of children and love of the sport.  If you are qualified and interested in this coaching opportunity, that would be an added asset – but not a requirement of the administrative positions.

Apply for either of these jobs only if you LIKE to work, and you are capable of working effectively, and if you get a sense of satisfaction from helping others.  Send us a tuned-for-the-position resume and a well-crafted cover letter explaining why you would like to work here, why you are qualified to work here, and your salary expectations.  Send to John Leonard at jleonard@swimmingcoach.org.  Our timeline is:  as soon as possible but only with the right people on the bus.

FL, FORT LAUDERDALE – ASCA National Office – 2 Administrative Positions (with some coaching on the side) – Listed 05/16/2017

2 Administrative Positions (Part Time On-Deck Coaching Also Possible)
FLORIDA, FORT LAUDERDALE
ASCA National Office
Listed May 16, 2017

The ASCA national office is seeking to enhance the quality of our member and partner services with the addition of two new positions.  (Pardon the lack of TITLES on these positions – we’re opening the front doors of the bus and looking to get the right people on board.  Right people first, titles second.)

The first position is for an incredibly detail oriented person – and we’re not just saying it:  we mean it — details, details, details.  If you have a provable history of near OCPD attention to details and you possess a “serve rather than be served” approach to your work then we would like to hear from you.

The second position requires a different personality type:  it’s about sales.  It’s about providing our advertisers, sponsors, and partners with what they need and without the used car salesman’s pitch or the faux Madison Avenue shallow and insincere rhetoric.  Our partners are long term, and they are down to earth people, and they trust us, and we care for them.  We learn their needs, we find solutions, we provide world class service.  If you have people skills, and excellent sales skills, and a resume with RESULTS rather than activity then we want to hear from you.

Because we are a small office, titles don’t mean a lot.  We all work at everything from stuffing envelopes to major project planning, follow through, and earned results.  We have office hours of 8 – 5 but on just about any day you’re going to find people here before 6 AM and after 6 PM.

Also, if you love to coach we have a part time coaching position available.  It’s a small local USAS swimming team of ages 6 through high school aged swimmers that is coach owned and run for love of children and love of the sport.  If you are qualified and interested in this coaching opportunity, that would be an added asset – but not a requirement of the administrative positions.

Apply for either of these jobs only if you LIKE to work, and you are capable of working effectively, and if you get a sense of satisfaction from helping others.  Send us a tuned-for-the-position resume and a well-crafted cover letter explaining why you would like to work here, why you are qualified to work here, and your salary expectations.  Send to John Leonard at jleonard@swimmingcoach.org.  Our timeline is:  as soon as possible but only with the right people on the bus.
