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 100% remote team (yes, you’d get to work from home!) as the Executive Assistant to the Founder & CEO.

How would you like to be with a company that helps people get into their dream graduate schools with 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 and included beating a difficult Escape Game, a dessert reception with some of our clients, touring the city, one-hour massages, and eating the world’s best BBQ. Yeehaw!

With hard work and a willingness to learn, you will have the opportunity to build your skillscontribute to an amazing missionhave fun with like-minded people, and do it all while working from home.

  • manage the company’s business Facebook and Twitter accounts using a tool such as Edgar

  • people afraid of technology or who are proud to be “not computer savvy”
  • people interested in a remote role so they can travel several months out of the year
  • people who want to start their own business or build their own brand
