About Career Outcomes Matter LLC (melissallarena.com)

Career Outcomes Matter LLC is a New York-based talent management consulting/career-coaching firm.  Our mission is to provide firms with strategies and tools to support successful employee transitions, and help high-performers use their “superpowers” to propel career leaps. Launched in 2011, we are looking for a business development/marketing consultant who appreciates highly strategic thinking, works well when faced with few resources, and would love to bring out the lead generation whisperer in them. This engagement is for 10 hours a week.

Work will include, but is not limited to:

Helping the CEO of Career Outcomes Matter LLC directly to:

  • Inform, create, and manage a project plan outlining the firm’s B2C/B2B strategy
  • Manage Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn social media posts via HootSuite
  • Audit and repackage materials to create marketable offerings that sell themselves
  • Grow CRM database, manage its segmentation efforts, and focus on conversions
  • Identify newsletter partnership opportunities and lead their well-planned execution
  • Automate or streamline existing manual processes
  • Complete other ad hoc assignments as necessary

What’s in it for you:

  • Build your resume by adding value to an entrepreneur through tangible results
  • Test out business development ideas that larger organizations would not let you test nor lead
  • Gain expertise around how to squeeze the value out of resources in a limited resource firm
  • Access to a manager known for empowering consultants with highly marketable skills
  • Gather social media experience that any organization would desire in an aspiring digital market
  • Work remotely and around your school/work/life schedule


Ideal candidates are:

  • Type A professionals who thrive when given goals
  • Exceptionally responsive (i.e. deliver quality work)
  • Meticulous (and like using that word)
  • Strong communicators, self-starters, sharp, energetic, and well-organized
  • Resourceful (able to find a way)
  • Able to sense big opportunities and jump on them
  • Able to prioritize well-thought out ideas (i.e. not just addicted to brainstorming) and are willing to take them all the way through execution


• $10 an hour + BONUS potential based on leads generated that are closed
