4. (See flyer)  A firm in Wilsonville, the machine shop, badly needs a book keeper to do entry-level accounting work. I have been doing it since graduation but it’s time to trim the workload before I go crazy.  Starting wage is $15/hour. Workload 15 hours/week but negotiable either way. Lots of growth potential, including steep wage increases. Complete flexibility on work schedules. I would train them and gradually pass more responsibility onto them as they settle into the position.

Looking for a sophomore/junior who will be in Corvallis over the summer. Please feel free to disperse this however you deem appropriate. Just wanted to give a fellow Beaver a good opportunity before selling out to professional book keepers.
