This will probably be the longest, most honest and detailed, employment ad you will ever read.
We did this so that you don't waste your time applying for a job that you know, deep down, is not for you.
We want to lay it out from the get go - what type of person we are looking for and what we expect from you.
If you are up for a job that is as demanding as it is rewarding, please continue reading the rest of this ad. If you are up to the challenge, we look forward to receiving your application, resume and cover letter.
To those of you who read this entire ad and apply for the position, we thank you in advance and look forward to meeting you.
We are looking to hire offshore talent for the Bookkeeper position.
This is not a temporary position, the successful applicant will become an integral part of our team.
We are looking for a hardworking, detail-oriented individual to be part of our staff.
What will you do?
Bookkeeper job duties include working closely with our accounting team to create and analyze financial reports and ensure legal requirements compliance, process accounts payable and receivable, and manage invoices and tax payments. Our ideal candidate holds a Finance degree (preferably followed by accounting CPE courses) and is familiar with accounting software such as QuickBooks.
You will handle direct interaction with clients and parties to transactions here in the US once you have been trained and established your proficiency in the English language.
What are some characteristics that you should have?
You will need to speak and write English clearly.
You must be a positive person. If you see the glass as being half full, you are the type of person we are looking for. Our office does not do well with toxic or negative attitudes, complainers or victims, and you will not fit in if you even think that you may fit into one of the above categories of negative people.
You must be competent and proficient in the use of MS Office (Word, Excel, and Outlook) at a minimum. The more computer experience the better.
We prefer people who are not afraid of computers or learning new things that will make their jobs easier.
If you lose stuff, are not organized, and get easily distracted, please don't apply.
You need to be detail oriented and willing to go the extra mile to get the job done right the first time. In our practice getting it done right the first time for our clients is very important and we need everyone to work with this goal in mind. If this seems too much to ask of you, don't apply for this job. As a way to test your attention to detail we have included a question on our application which reads “Do you feel attention to detail is important?” Please answer this question by placing the words “Apple Pie” and nothing else in the space provided for your answer.
You must be a team player. We are strong believers in the team approach, so if you are not a team player, this is not the job for you.
You need to be able to interact with people in a manner that is polite, educated, and puts them at ease.
You cannot talk down to anyone that you deal with in our office. You need to have compassion when dealing with those you meet as part of our team.
Your ability to listen to what you are being told and ask follow up questions is very important. If you cannot listen, understand, evaluate and interview someone, this is not the job for you.
You MUST be able to handle working with several different databases of information. If you aren't 100% confident managing data and people, you are not the right person for this job.
At times, you will also need to know how to figure things out on your own, creatively problem solve and come up with solutions.
To put it simply, we want you to earn what we are paying you. We don't want to pay you to socialize, surf the Internet, e-mail friends and family, work for another company or any other non-work related activities while you are on the clock for us. This does not mean it is not fun to be on our team, it just means we know when we have to work and we know when to have fun.
If this sounds harsh or unfair, then this is not the job for you.
At this point some of you may be thinking that this job will be the worst job in the world. If you are, this is not the job for you.
If, on the other hand, you realize that such a team will help you get your job done efficiently and also have a life outside of work, then you are the type of candidate we would like to meet to discuss the opportunity we are offering.
If you are hired, you will be part of a wonderful team of people, who work hard to get the job done right the first time and take pride in the work that they do. You will be part of a team that is rewarded for their hard work.
Regarding compensation, the starting pay range is $800 US Dollars a month during the first 15 months. If you prove to be invaluable to the team, your pay will increase even further after the first 15 months.
You will be challenged but you will have fun and you will enjoy helping our clients.
If you have gotten this far, you are truly an exceptional worker looking for a professional team, as most people will have stopped reading this ad a long time ago. You want to be part of a team where your hard work and efforts are recognized, appreciated and rewarded.
HOW TO APPLY:
Thank you for taking the time to read this entire ad. If you decide to apply we look forward to meeting you.
