Please note: if you applied for a position with Myers Law through Indeed.com in the past calendar year, it was not a position with us, nor was it our posting. It was a scam posting from someone else trying to take money from job seekers. You should NEVER pay money to someone as part of any job seeking or application process, and you should always look up the company and its staff first to see if the people hiring even work at the company.
This position requires task-oriented team members who have excellent organizational skills, are detail oriented, are able to solve problems and have a working knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel, and experience scheduling with Clio and/or Google Calendar. Email and technological proficiency (laptop use, Microsoft Office software use, webmail, social media use, and ability to learn new programs, systems, and other software) is a must. Candidates must be self-driven and be able to work from home, as this position is, after initial training, is primarily a work-from-home position, some days in the office.
