If you would like a rewarding position helping people achieve their dream career, we invite you to apply to work with IAP Career College, a division of FabJob Inc. All of the positions we offer are flexible, part-time, or work-from-home positions and most 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 20 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. So it’s important to us to work with people who are low-maintenance and don’t require constant supervision.
If IAP Career College seems 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 with experience in one or more of the 100+ careers for which we offer courses.
These part-time positions involve providing teaching assistance by responding to student questions via email, and Zooming or 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 our parent company, FabJob Inc., the leading publisher of career guide books on how to get started in a dream career. Our career guides have been used as textbooks for more than 20 years, 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 per hour.
If this sounds like a potential fit for you, please submit your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 business is an asset.
All applicants will receive an automated reply, and we will contact selected applicants when a position is available.
This position has been filled.
If you would like a rewarding editorial position with a pioneering independent book publisher and online career college, we invite you to apply to become an Editorial Assistant for FabJob Inc., the parent company of IAP Career College.
Named “the #1 place to get published online” by Writer’s Digest, FabJob is the leading publisher of guide books on how to get started in a dream career. FabJob has helped millions of career changers on six continents over the past two decades. You can find FabJob guides in the library collections of many respected colleges and universities — from the University of Texas to the Fashion Institute of Technology — and in numerous public libraries.
About The Position
Reporting to a senior editor, your work will involve updating FabJob career guides which are used as textbooks for the International Association of Professions Career College (IAP Career College). You may also help prepare new FabJob guides for publication, and research and write material for major updates to older guides which are being revised and expanded.
This is a flexible work-from-home position that pays $25 per hour to start, with a negotiable number of hours per week. This can be either a full-time or part-time, short-term or long-term, contract position for the right person.
About Our Ideal Editorial Assistant
Our organization is lean, so we need someone who is self-directed and will work quickly with minimal supervision. Our ideal editorial research assistant has the following traits:
- Exceptional academic and online research skills
- Excellent writing skills with an engaging style
- Some experience editing non-fiction, preferably how-to information
- Strong independent work ethic (consistently strives for excellence)
- Highly empathetic (can easily identify with our readers and students)
- Intuitive (notices if information does not seem correct or complete)
- Focus on the big picture (understands that readers care more about content than commas)
- Responsible (if something needs to be done, you jump in and do it)
Please note that the focus of this position is research with some writing, not copy editing. If you love to look for grammatical errors in everything you read, this is not the job for you. Believe it or not, our books are conversational in tone! We use “they” instead of “he or she” even when writing in the singular. (We use too many brackets.) And sentence fragments. But we produce exceptional career guides that help people’s dreams come true. We not only tell readers what to do to get started in a new career or business, we tell them how to do it.
Throughout our over 20 years of publishing and online education, we have found those who do well in our editorial positions were top students in social sciences fields, typically with advanced degrees and exceptional GPAs. We have found our editorial workplace culture fits best with workers who identify as NFs on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, especially INFP, INFJ, and ENFJ types.
About Applying for This Position
We typically receive hundreds of applications for every editorial position we advertise, but please do not let that discourage you if you have the qualities we are looking for. If you have a history of academic excellence (such as a Master’s degree in a social sciences field with an exceptional GPA), are highly intuitive (according to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator), and go the extra mile (i.e. you include an application letter that shows you have the qualifications we are looking for, that you are a fit with our workplace culture, and that you’ve learned more about our business than what’s in this ad), you will already be ahead of 90% of applicants.
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 20 years ago are still with us and our best contractors typically return to work with us again and again). Plus, whenever possible, we reward our people with flexible work hours, opportunities for advancement, and increased compensation.
If you feel you are a good fit with what we are looking for, and want to be considered for future openings, please submit your resume and cover letter to email@example.com.
