As many of you know, I hired a temporary office assistant in late October 2015. I needed someone who could add value to my business and give me some of my life back. Hiring an office assistant was one of the best decisions I ever made.
It is with great excitement that I am once again hiring. Photoshoot season is officially underway and things here at Emily Dobson Photography are picking up quickly! I am opening back up the position of Office Assistant: a temporary part-time position that will help to efficiently service my clients and further grow my business.
A little bit about me…
I operate a full service photography studio serving high school seniors for senior portraits as well as brides and grooms on their wedding day. My business is known for its professionalism, communication and organizational skills, high-quality products and an overall amazing photography experience. I am a one-man show based out of Godfrey, IL. I photograph weddings, high school seniors on-location and run all of the behind-scenes business stuff from home. In my home office, I work in a casual and comfortable atmosphere in my PJs or my yoga pants and sweatshirts with a snot and boogers as my accessories. Though I may not always look the part, I am working my living tail off!
Information about the position…
