It’s here! I am finally writing this official job post! I need an assistant!

In fact… I need an assistant to hire me an assistant!

I actually went back and forth on whether to hire an intern OR an assistant… but I was told that if I really want to build a team, to send someone out in my name, to groom someone to take on jobs of their own someday… that an assistant is the way to go!

This will be an intimate job. You will be working with me out of my home, and although an office space would be ideal… home it is for now (maybe we can make a studio space our first goal together, no?)!

This will be an entry-level job, with errands involved… but it will also be so much more (design meetings, sourcing, planning and styling… and if you have AutoCad and sketching skills… BONUS).

The ideal candidate would have prior experience at an interior design firm, but it is not a requirement. What is required? Someone with an awesome attitude, respectful demeanor (to EVERYONE), a winning personality, and a strong work ethic… as well as what’s listed below!

You must also live in Los Angeles and have a car (preferably big enough to haul small loads of design “stuff”).

I will be starting my assistant at two days per week, and if it’s a good fit, and I see the need for more hours… I will increase the days to three!
