Well, that’s an unusual subject, right? Yes, my lovely wife is looking for a job. (Dutch: mijn echtgenote zoekt een baan. Ik hou, gezien het reguliere publiek hier, m’n tekst gewoon in het Engels.)
She writes well. Especially Dutch, of course. She studied history, which is basically the best study for reading, writing, summarizing and gathering information. So not only writing, but also doing a sizable bit of background information search for that.
Writing: yes, also for websites, which fits my own natural public on my weblog. She maintains most of the content on a Plone website that I set up, so she’s comfy with a CMS. And she’s got her own (wordpress) blog.
For practical reasons: 12-20 hours per week max.
Bonus points if it is a job at a governmental organisation (Dutch: gemeente, bijvoorbeeld) in the educational field. She worked as a municipal educational officer, for instance.
She’s also good as a secretary. Preferrably a bit on the hard side instead of on the boring side. A former employer once asked her to come and work for the new organization that she then worked for: pretty good indication that she’s hard working and efficient.
So: need someone intelligent who can write? A good secretary? A researcher/writer? Preferrably with website experience? Get her.
Some practical points:
Yeah, 12 till 20 hours max.
We live in Nieuwegein and we don’t have a car, so either work-partially-from-home or accessible by public transport or bicycle.
Get her, she’s good.
Her Dutch CV is online.
See her linkedin page.
