1) Administrative Repetitive Task Help

Questions:

  1. Are you extremely detail-oriented?
  2. Do you enjoy performing repetitive tasks to perfection?
  3. Are you well-versed with using your own computer, and happy to be spending most of this job time using it, wherever you may be?
  4. Are you very, or at least quite familiar with social media?
  5. Are you looking for permanent, long-term part-time work -- not just a fill-gap until you have a different job or school begins, etc.?
  6. Would you very much appreciate having flexibility in your part-time work hours?  (We'd need your help initially approximately 1 to 3 hours each working day with room for growth, but which hours during the day would be up to you).
  7. Do you have a kind heart and warm, friendly demeanor?
  8. Do you have a passion for disaster, travel, street, and/or wilderness medicine?

Answers:

Duties:

Collaborate with teammates Deanna (her job description is below) and Matt to administer and advertise courses.  Possible duties include performing advertising tasks, fielding or redirecting prospective students' questions, processing course registrations, communicating with students before and after classes, and more.

 

Benefits:

  • Choose-your-own job title (within reason :)
  • Pay will start at Living Wage for one adult, with opportunity for bonuses.
  • Enjoy work wherever you want, so long as you have an internet connection.

Update 5/25/17:  the application deadline has passed, and position filled.  Things change, MEDIC is growing, and needs are expanding, so please still feel free to reach out to us with your resume.

 

Questions:

  1. Are you a social media guru?
  2. Do you enjoy advertising / word-spreading?
  3. Are you extremely detail-oriented?
  4. Are you looking for permanent, long-term part-time work -- not just a fill-gap until you have a different job or school begins, etc.?

Duties:

Duties start with taking on MEDIC's current word-spreading tasks and connections (facebook, Meetup, Craigslist, contacting / listing in specific likely-interested groups, newspaper calendar listings, etc.) and grow word-spreading from there including instagram and perhaps more.  Rough guess 3 to 5 devoted (not multi-tasked with other non-MEDIC things at same time) hours per week, with growth opportunity for more advertising as well as for email general administrative work.

 

Benefits:

  • Choose-your-own job title (within reason :)

3) Wilderness Medicine Instructor

Do You Have:

  • a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) or higher certification, or other medical certification plus a desire to become a WFR?
  • a super-strong passion for wilderness medicine, and endless desire to learn more about it?
  • a sharp mind, and attention to detail?
  • extensive experience with outdoor adventures, disaster relief, or emergency medical care-giving?
  • the ability, warmth, patience, and thoughtfulness to work well with all kinds and ages of learners?
  • an always-upbeat attitude?
  • a good sense of humor?
  • punctuality, dependability, reliability, and loyalty as some of your core values?
  • weekend availability?
  • a desire and plan to live and stay in Virginia or surrounding states for many years to come?

 

If Yes:

  • MEDIC may be interested in training you (apprenticeship model, plus possibly SOLO Instructor Training School) to become a top-notch SOLO wilderness medicine instructor
  • Once you're accepted and trained (an on-and-off process that typically takes at least a few months), both MEDIC and SOLO will be interested in hiring you to teach 2-day Wilderness First Aid certification classes (usually on weekends) on a part-time basis.

 

Interested?

  • Please email matt (at) solowfa (d0t) com with (1) a cover letter illustrating how you have what's listed in the "Do You Have" section above, and (2) your resume, including noting your GPA from the last educational institution you attended.
