Pay range ($11-$15) per hour depdending on qualifications of the candidate


  • College degree or some college experience
  • Marketing experience in a simliar role

My thoughts – are you really going to get someone who has marketing Experience, highly motivated with high energy to work 25 hours per week, utilizing all of the print, social media, email grass roots & ect (sp) efforts for $11 – $15 per hour?

It’s obvious based on this posting that they need someone who can write & market for them.
