Work From Home as an Executive Assistant for the American Red Cross

If you dream of making a difference with an organization like the American Red Cross but have an aversion to blood and gross stuff like that, this could be the job for you. 

The disaster-relief humanitarian organization is hiring a full-time executive assistant for its training services division. You’ll guide volunteers as you provide administrative support to the Scientific Advisory Council, a team dedicated to ensuring Red Cross programs are based on the most current scientific research.

Although the organization would prefer someone based in Washington, D.C., the job listing indicates it will consider candidates from anywhere in the U.S.
