One of our beloved clients has just emailed you about a project they MUST have before your weekend starts. Do you:
A) pretend you never saw the email and hope that it really wasn't that important
B) send them an email back asking them if they're serious and tell them it will have to wait
C) tell Shannon and hope she say's "Don't worry, I'll handle it"
D) let the client know you're on top of it and get them what they need
If your answer is anything but D, we want to let you know that monster.com is a great place to find a job and wish you happy hunting.
If you did answer D, and were genuine with that response, keep reading.
While the above scenario is far from a regular occurrence at WhirlWind, we pride ourselves on our staff's dedication and passion for their job. We know that if any of our clients did send in a last minute request that was truly urgent, that each of us would be willing to help them out.
WhirlWind is a fast-paced, highly demanding, and incredibly fun place to work. Most companies like to say that they're like one big family; and we're one of them. However, we bring in only the best. If you're up for the challenge and think you have what it takes, submit cover letter, resume (plus design or writing examples if applicable) via email to: Careers@WhirlWind-Creative.com. No phone calls please.
