Markting AssistantJob Description

I am in the beginning phases of hiring my first marketing assistant and was wondering if anyone had a job description for that position.

Easy enough to google

First you have to decide what exactly you want your marketing assistent to do.

Do you mean someone who’s going to go to offices? Make phone calls?

Or do you mean someone who’s going to update your website and post to social media for you?

If you’re not clear on what you want, you won’t find someone who knows what you want them to do.

You will get 1001 people sending you resumes telling you how great they are at sitting on their couch and posting to Instagram.
