SAIPUA INTERNSHIP


We need some serious administrative help around here, and I'm just going to say it.

I'd like to hire an intern. this person would be:

*HIGHLY ORGANIZED
*Know computer programs like Excel, Photoshop, MacMail
*Very good on the phone, polite
*Very eager to learn about running a small business, flowers, wedding industry, etc
*Fluent in fleetwood mac discography, no adversions to Prince in all his incarnations
*Can spell well. can edit well. has an eye for detail

I can offer:
*lunch
*endless knowledge of flowers and beautiful things; how to make them, were to find them, etc.
*Potential for advancement in the Saipua empire after 1-2 months, i.e. eventual salary
*free soap and flowers

Ideally this intern would help me 2-3 times a week on administrative stuff like managing my email, transcribing my notes, editing my wedding bids. Schedule would be very flexible, but you must be available for some time during the week. If you're interested please email me some things about you, any questions you have, and maybe a resume to sarah@saipua.com
Thanks for your consideration, and please pass this on to anyone you may know.
Thanks for reading my blog too. I know it's been a sort of lame lately, but maybe with some help I can start to beef it up again.

If only I was in your neck of the woods, I'd help you out just for the fun of it...:))

BUT If you ever think of expanding into the southern Massachusetts area (I live 50 minutes south of Boston and 20 minutes north of Providence), let me know!

I wish I could do this, too. If you need editing and writing help from afar, I'm down.

If only I lived near you. I would be there.

omg, i was just saying a few weeks ago (when i saw the hellebores on design*sponge) that i'd be willing to move to nyc and live in a hostel to be an intern at saipua (i'm very good at mac mail and photoshop, btw).

and now look. opportunity knocks. totally chickening out.

Lana said...

i wish! hope you find your intern soon sarah!

Bonbon Oiseau said...

I wish I could apply. I would bring every Fleetwood Mac cd and even some Lindsey/Stevie gossip. Have lots of pals near you, will pass this on...

i would be so happy working with you. it almost makes me give up my job as an architect and move from norway to new york... L

P. said...

Can I be your slave? I do a real good version of "I Would Die 4 U."

So sad, I went to the Flea on Saturday and must have missed you somehow. Maybe I was too early? I wanted to come by to say hi because it's been ages, dawg.

If only... another dream job slips through the net.
Hope you find a fellow lovely person

Flora said...

OOps I meant to leave that comment ^^ but was signed in weirdly with my husband's account! Although I am very tickled by him wishing it was his dream job!
He did used to be a florist and used to do the flowers for 10 Downing Street!

josh said...

let me know when its filled; i'll stop telling ppl.

Tracey said...

Sounds amazing but I think the commute from the UK to NY would be a little exhausting. Hope you find the perfect person. x

The Fab Miss B said...

If only I weren't just about to move to Hawaii! (Well, actually, I'm pretty psyched about that, but I'd also love to come work with you!) I know you'll find the perfect person! Good luck!

Kelly Wilson said...

I'd die to work for Saipua. WHY CAN'T I LIVE IN NEW YORK? i'm only 2 hours away, does that count??

prettygoblin said...

I sent a message to you on facebook but I'm really interested and I live in Red Hook. I will try to stop by today or over the weekend. Seriously would be my dream job right now.

Ashley said...

Wish you were in Atlanta, I'd L-O-V-E to do that. Maybe for free.. well.. almost for free. Good luck finding someone! *jealous*

Pats Mikicic said...

Sign me up for chicago too!
(Cause it'll happen)

Peonies and Polaroids said...

I want the job! I want the job!

Do you offer travel expenses? I don't think that commuting from Scotland would be *too* ridiculous.
