An online teacher has an answer for those who might want to make an online career move.
An online job posting from The Houston Chronicle lists the job title, “Associate” and the job description as “Online Assistant” and “Assistant Webmaster.”
The Chronicle said that this job is advertised for “online teaching jobs,” which the site’s description describes as “in the online teaching industry.”
“We offer a variety of positions ranging from web development to video production, marketing, sales, sales & admin, and many more,” the listing reads.
It doesn’t say how many online teaching positions are listed in Houston, though the Chronicle says there are more than 20 positions in the Houston area.
Ira Tufte, the company’s executive director, told The Associated Press that the job posting is for someone who is “an experienced Webmaster” and is “currently in a paid job and looking for a great position to continue with.”
He said the job listing does not list the position as a full-time position.
“We’ve done a lot of interviews, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to be employed full time,” Tuftte said.
He said that he and other online job seekers have had a hard time finding positions in Houston.
“A lot of them were looking for full-timers and people who are looking for jobs,” Tefte said, adding that the company is “very competitive in that regard.”
He added that the website has had an online presence for about a year, and he expects the company will expand its presence as the economy recovers.
“In terms of the industry, we’re looking to expand the number of positions,” he said.
“This is going to help us more than it hurts us,” Tafte said of the company hiring new employees.
“I think this is the kind of thing that you just have to get over.
It’s going to take a lot to bring people in, but we’re very confident in our ability to do that.”
