P.S. This is not a corporate type of structured job. We are entrepreneurial small business owners.  We move quickly to capitalize on opportunities. This is not the type of job where just showing up is enough. Performance is everything to us. We want nothing more than to find a person who takes real interest in doing good work and contributing to the clients success and the growth of the business.

With all that said, enthusiasm and a positive attitude go a long way in our books. We are a very positive, upbeat group and appreciate those qualities in others. Send us your resume today!
