Park & Fine Literary and Media is looking to hire an assistant to support Theresa Park and to help run the 15-person office. Responsibilities will include reception, office management, and a lot of travel and calendar scheduling: at least two years of office experience at a talent agency, literary agency, or publishing house is a plus but not necessary. The right candidate has impeccable administrative chops and thrives in a high-drive environment. The role requires attention to detail, self-direction, organization, and high standards. We will want this person to anticipate needs, get ahead of problems, and coordinate with hundreds of commercial fiction and nonfiction clients and a dozen colleagues. Expectations are high, and the right person values the opportunity to be a vital part of our energetic team in small ways and big and will love the work. If you are interested in this position, please email a CV with names of references, along with a cover letter.  Please visit parkfine.com for information about the literary agency.
