Jobs with IAP Career College, FabJob, and zenGOT
If you would like a rewarding position helping people achieve their dream career, we invite you to apply to work with our parent company FabJob or one of our divisions. All of the positions we offer are flexible, part-time, or work-from-home positions that pay by the hour.
If we’re a fit for you and you’re a fit for us, you will join an organization that good workers want to keep working with. The first two people we hired over 15 years ago are still with us and our best contractors typically return to work with us again and again.
We hire people who can “hit the ground running”, adapt quickly to changing priorities, and thrive without micro-management or red tape.
If IAP Career College, FabJob, or zenGOT seem like the kind of “place” you might like to work, please scroll down for information about our current openings. Like others who work for us, the place you’ll be working is your own home or community — whether that’s in Colorado, Canada, or Cork, Ireland.
Could you be a faculty member for the International Association of Professions Career College? We are seeking knowledgeable, supportive people with business experience to serve as faculty members for IAP Career College courses. Although we have a full roster of faculty for many of our courses, we are always interested in hearing from prospective faculty members, especially those with personal experience in the careers for which we offer courses.
These part-time positions involve providing teaching assistance by responding to student questions via email and Skyping with students who want to communicate by video call, voice call, or instant message. We ask that faculty members respond to students within one business day when possible. Because these are online positions, we are happy to hear from applicants living anywhere in the world.
We expect faculty members to give advice from their own experience working in the career or as a business coach, however, information provided to students must also be consistent with the course textbook. The textbooks for all courses are from FabJob Inc., the leading publisher of career guide books on how to get started in a dream career. FabJob guides have been used as textbooks for more than a decade, and you can find them in the career centers and library collections of many famed colleges and universities – from the University of Texas to the Fashion Institute of Technology.
The faculty member positions are flexible, part-time, work from home positions that pay $30.00 US per hour.
If this sounds like a potential fit for you, please submit your resume and cover letter to email@example.com. Before applying, please review our career certificate courses so you can tell us which of our courses you could serve as faculty member for. In addition to relevant business experience, any experience with organizations such as the Small Business Administration, SCORE, or as an instructor of courses related to starting a brick and mortar business is an asset.
All applicants will receive an automated reply, and we will contact selected applicants when a position is available.
Public Relations Coordinator for zenGOT
Imagine having a creative and fun part-time job doing public relations for zenGOT™, a new sister company of a well-established business, offering household services that people need and want.
Similar to Uber and Airbnb for the services industry, the zenGOT™ platform (an online and app based community) matches consumers with pre-vetted, independent service providers known as zenGivers™ who provide various quality home services including: cleaning, handyman services, professional organizing, yard work, tutoring, pet care, errand running, and more. You can learn more about zenGOT™ at https://www.zengot.com.
Offering “Peace of Mind with the Gift of Time”, the obvious benefit of zenGOT™ services for consumers is freeing up their time. As The Guardian reported: “Time, not money, is the 21st century’s most precious commodity.”
According to CBC, “A study by the University of British Columbia and Harvard Business School, published [in July 2017] in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, has found buying time makes people happier than buying material things.”
As Public Relations Coordinator for zenGOT™, you will get the word out to consumers (especially Baby Boomers and Gen Xers), about this valuable service that can make their lives happier by freeing up their time. As our forthcoming video asks: “What would you do with your free time?”
You will do hands-on public relations work in the first Canadian cities where zenGOT is launched in late 2017, primarily in B.C. and Alberta. Then, as zenGOT rolls out in additional cities throughout North America in 2018, your role could evolve to full-time overseeing a team of local PR people.
In addition to social media and traditional media relations, your work will be at the grassroots community level and involve guerrilla marketing. You may submit weekly articles to community newspapers, have a team handing out postcards at festivals and fairs from the PNE to Pride Days, have tables at local markets and community events, arrange to put up lawn signs, and more. You will come up with – and, more importantly, carry out — creative, low-cost public relations and marketing which could range from contests to coupons to classifieds, partnerships to press releases to podcasts, banners to blogs to bulletin boards, and more.
The Public Relations Coordinator position pays $25 CAD per hour to start. Preference will be given to applicants living near Vancouver, B.C. or Calgary, Alberta.
The ideal person for this position is highly productive as well as personable. You have a track record of success getting local media coverage and concrete results for your employers and clients. If you believe you are the right person for this job, please write an engaging letter of application to zenGOT’s Chief Creative Officer telling us why we should hire you, and email it to careers@zenGOT.com.
If you can provide household services, you could earn $20 to $50 or more per hour through our sister company zenGOT™, a website and app connecting consumers with people like you who are paid to provide services.

As a zenGiver™ (a service provider with zenGOT™), you will be a self-employed, independent contractor. That means you will set your own hours, set your own rates ($20 to $50 or more per hour), and be your own boss.
The benefits of providing your services through zenGOT™ include: getting more clients, finding jobs you love, making more money, getting insurance coverage, having customer service provided, plus fast and easy payments for you.
It’s free to join so go to http://zengivers.zengot.com to register today as a zenGiver™.
