Expectations: What we’re looking for

Friendliness and Professionalism—At Esultants, our top priority is our clients. You don’t have to always like people or be popular, but can you be polite when talking to people? Will you dress professionally for an interview or meeting?

Self-starter—We don't have time for micromanagement. Because this is a part-time position, every hour you are at work needs to be productive. 

Grit—Sometimes tasks aren’t fun, and people aren’t always pleasant.

Adaptive Learner—The web is ever-changing, consistently fluctuating. To make it in this field, you have to be willing to research and adapt to evolving rules and regulations.

Team-player—Esultants is a tight-knit community where each employee is counted on by the rest of the company to do their work well and on time.

Detail-Observer—When dealing with code, even a misplaced space or comma can change everything. How is your attention to detail? (This question could be answered by showing a detailed school planner, a checklist for a big project, or a high score on a grammar test, for example.)

Digital Familiarity—Know how to use Microsoft Office products, Outlook email, and social media. We can teach you the rest, but any experience in coding or blogging is a plus.

Transportation—We are located south of the State Fairgrounds on Como Avenue in Saint Paul, one block east of the Como Ave & Cathlin St bus stop on Metro Transit route 3. We also have a free parking lot for employees.
