Who is Jennifer

I am a very hard worker who is committed to excellence and impatient with inactivity. I am kind but driven. My Myer-Briggs personality type is Mediator (INFP-T) or Diplomat (INFJ-T), depending on when I take it. I appear organized and I get things done, but I do not schedule my time in a traditional way. These are my top five strengths:

Things You Should Know About Me Before You Consider Applying

I'm one of those "march to the beat of a different drummer" creative types. I dislike set schedules, meetings, and appointments. I vastly prefer to chat in texts, FB messenger, and email, and I avoid voice calls. I like to experiment with my blog, FB groups, and mailing lists, and am likely to make changes without much warning. I like to deep dive into things, whether it's product creation or home renovation projects for my blog, and I will hyper focus on it for several days. I have specific core values that matter to me and my team. I treat others as I want to be treated which means I won't be micro managing you nor offering a lot of feedback if you're doing the job right. I am fiercely independent and cherish my freedom. My ideal day is one without any meetings or set activities, where I can just work on my One Thing and then various projects as I am inspired to do so. If you are the type of person who needs constant contact and feedback from me, you won't be happy working with me. This position will report to our Video Content Manager.
