About You

  1. You are not just tech-savvy but feel a personal triumph each time you quickly master a new piece of software and implement it seamlessly into already-existing programs and systems.

  2. You are comfortable working with online marketing software and programs, working in the backends of content management platforms, doing admin, content management, writing, research, social media, and organization.

  3. You are hyper-focused in your work; you dedicate yourself to the tasks and projects at hand in an orderly way so that you can sign off at the end of each day knowing that you made progress.

  4. You are OBSESSED with the details. Your brain goes into overdrive ensuring that all the dots are connected properly *before* hitting publish. Mistakes rarely happen.

  5. You are someone who can work well under pressure, does not need to be monitored or checked up on, and are not flustered by facing multiple mini fires all at the same time.

  6. You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves and dive in to solve a problem that you may not know how to solve. Google is your friend.

  7. You are not a wallflower. During our live events, we expect all of our staff to interact with our members and guests and make everyone feel comfortable and welcome.

  8. You strive to exemplify The Club's values of nurturing relationships, inclusivity, a desire to foster world-class knowledge, and belief in growing Chicago's future.
