Executive Assistant Application

Join a diverse team led by a Woman Entrepreneur Helping Make People’s Dreams Come True

How would you like to be with a company that helps people get into their dream graduate schools with scholarship funding that is at the very beginning of a significant growth phase?

A company that is willing and able to teach you everything you need to know to succeed?

A company that is more concerned about who you are as a person than about your job history or your experience?

A company that wants to give you the training and the opportunity you’ve been looking for?

A company that has twice-yearly all expenses paid company retreats? Our last retreat was in Austin, Texas in January 2018 and included beating a difficult Escape Game, touring the city, one-hour massages, and eating the world’s best BBQ. Our next retreat is in Austin again in November 2018.

With hard work and a willingness to learn, you will have the opportunity to build your skills, contribute to an amazing mission, and have fun with like-minded people.

The Art of Applying is a fast-growing education company that helps people from all over the world get admitted to their dream graduate schools with funding to pay for it.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, reliable self-starter with excellent communication skills and a willingness to learn user-friendly technology such as WordPress, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Basecamp, and Zoom to join our diverse, international team as the Executive Assistant to the Founder & CEO.
