With our impending move and the arrival or our son in late Spring, I'm looking to add another member to the EA/Lauren Loves team in the Raleigh area! If there's one thing I've learned in the last couple years of business, it's that asking for help and utilizing said help is 100% necessary. I currently have an assistant that runs all things EA social media (Hey, Melanie!) and another creative assistant that helps flesh out blog post ideas and creates many of the graphics you see here on the blog (Hey, Rachel!)! Since my current in-office assistant is in VA, I'm looking to fulfill that role with someone new! I'm seeking someone who wants to be a part of both of my businesses and is willing to do a whole host of tasks in any given day or week. There are many things that go into running a business, let alone two, so I need somebody who is willing to jump right in and get involved - from packaging up jewelry orders to rounding up sale picks to snapping an outfit photo for me! The details of the job itself can be found below, as well as how to apply.
Title of Role: Assistant/Creative Assistant (a true number two, like Dwight Schrute)
Hours: 10-20 hours per week, depending on needs (closer to 20 hours per week during holiday season), must be available for weekday hours -- M-F 10-5, availability around holidays
Compensation: will be discussed at interview!
Start Date: The goal is to start onboarding mid-late March
Location: Our office will be located on the Southwest side of Raleigh, NC, (Cary/Apex/Holly Springs area) so you must be able to travel there on a weekly basis.

Characteristics of a great candidate: Creative, organized, detail-oriented, quick learner, interest in fashion/personal style and accessories, flexible -- willing to wear many hats and jump around from task to task, someone who is excited about EA and blogging, someone that wants to be a part of a small business and helping it grow!
Previous experience is not required, although always a benefit! Experience with: Shopify, Photoshop, Quickbooks, Photography - DSLR are all a plus! Most everything you will be tasked with will be on-the-job training.
What I want to know about you:

- Any photos/graphics that exemplify your personal style and creativity
Please send your application (doesn’t have to be formal, I just want to get to know you a bit and see if you might be a good fit!) and the information to the bullet points above to firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Only apply if you are local and available for weekday hours. Not currently looking to hire anyone for evenings/weekends or remote work.)
