Professor at Chicago Business School


Hi there I'm a professor at a Chicago business school and I've realized that there aren't enough hours in my day for the number of things that I have to do. So, I'm looking for someone who is willing and able to take as many things off my plate as possible.Key details------------ I estimate about 15 hours of work per week, on average.- I'm offering $500/week. For an extremely well-qualified candidate who will be around for a long time, this could be more.- I live 5 minutes south of the UIC campus. Being nearby would be a plus.Examples of tasks------------------I own multiple properties in the city and you will be managing them. This will involve:- Being the main point of contact for tenants and addressing any concerns that come up. If you're handy enough to fix minor issues yourself, that's big plus; but if not, no worries - you should be effective at finding good contractors on Yelp and coordinating service.- For empty lots, coordinating things like snow removal and doing periodic check-ins.- Categorizing expenses and other tax-related tasks.- Etc.There are mundane things like:- Dropping off dry cleaning.- Returning packages.- Making photo albums out of trip photos (a plus if you would enjoy doing this).- Etc.There are more fun things like:- Planning and helping decorate for live music events that I host frequently (and hopefully attending them too).- Planning trip itineraries.- Making short lists of gifts.- Etc.There are also some one-off things that come up:- Right now I need help with interior decoration/organization because I just moved into a new place. If you are someone who thrives on Marie Kondo-style organization, it would be a big plusHelpful qualities----------------Some things that I think would be helpful to excel in this role:- Strong writing skills are essential. I expect most of our communication to happen via email and Slack. And, for many of your tasks, I expect you to do research on available options (i.e. if you're planning a trip itinerary or finding a Yelp contractor) and then send me a write-up about your findings so that I can provide input before you then go out and execute.- Being detail oriented. Someone who naturally measures twice before cutting once.- Probably having a car will help, but if not it's okay because I have one and rarely use it. As long as you can easily get to my location, which is near a Halsted stop.- I also do a lot of technical and A/V work, so if you happen to have experience with that please mention it.When responding------------------When responding, please tell me why you'd be a great fit for this role.- What are you studying, and where? In what program - undergrad, grad?- Do you have any writing samples you can include?- Do you have any of the "pluses" I mentioned above?- Are you located nearby?- How many semesters or years would you hope to work in this position?- Do you have a personal website, LinkedIn, resume, or CV that you can attach?- Anything else I ought to know?- Anything else about me or the role that you'd like to know?If your application fits the initial criteria, I'll be in touch within 5 business days to set up a Zoom to chat. Thank you for your interest
