What does this client’s business do?

The client sells reusable face masks in North America. They promise maximum protection and excellent breathability for their reusable face masks, used by frontline workers and regular people alike. To date, they have sold hundreds of thousands of masks during this pandemic.

Who was hired and what was their role?

Since the business is growing, they needed an admin operation assistant who can help them with their daily operations as they grow their two e-commerce brands. They were looking for someone who takes pride in getting things done and can prioritize tasks while assisting their CEO. The company is an e-commerce site, so the ideal candidate they had in mind also needed to be familiar with various platforms such as Shopify, Asana, Slack, Google Docs, Excel, Dropbox, and Google Drive.

At Shepherd, we helped them hire seasoned project manager Elaine Kae. Now their admin operation assistant, her daily tasks include:

  • Providing comprehensive administrative support to ensure smooth daily operations
  • Ensures that deadlines are met by keeping track of timelines through Asana
  • Managing the team’s schedules and tasks

What is the salary of the individual they hired?

Elaine now works full-time in the client’s time zone for $1,000/month.

What was the candidate’s background prior to being hired?

Just as the client required, Elaine is proficient in Shopify, Asana, Slack, Google Suite, and Dropbox. Prior to joining the client’s team, Elaine was a project manager handling end-to-end marketing and advertising campaigns. She has almost 10 years of experience, only losing her last job because of the pandemic. Thankfully, her work background matches what the client was looking for in an admin operation assistant.
