Description

We are a start-up healthcare company composed of 1 CEO, 2 full-time employees, 4 equity partners, 1 fundraiser/COO/Chairman and a number of internal investors that will eventually become shareholders. We have identified a gap in the highly competitive healthcare market and we are looking to identify and refine our product description in an effort to "cement our pitch" to VC/Angel/Seed investors. In short we are looking to identify 'the pain' felt by healthcare providers (doctors/dentists/ healthclinics/specialties doctors(cardio, plastics, ortho, spine etc.) and how we will reduce that 'pain' by providing a seamless piece of software that will become intrinsic to each medical practice in the USA as it utilizes information from other websites. We will provide a key revenue-generating product to healthcare providers across the US however we need you to interview these individuals and compile a list of 20 answers that will assist us in defining this product and illustrating that there is a verifiable and valid need. Once you complete this you may be offered an intern for a summer job that may be paid if you show the tenacity and intellect that we are looking for.

Responsibilities

- ability to knock on doors and be lively and introduce yourself
- ability to ask questions in a purposeful way that will elicit the correct answers
- ability to follow instruction and canvass a pre-determined list of individuals
- ability to follow up if asked to by the healthcare provider
- be able to commit at least 20-30 hours over a 3 week period.
- be able to travel from your home to the city or to work from your home town and file the answers to us using a company email that we will provide you.
- if you are not working, have graduated and can show the enthusiasm and inventiveness we are looking for we may offer you 2 weeks of a paid job whereby we will give you a list of healthcare providers and ask you to canvass them and ask them questions. In this case we may pay you for each one you complete or we may pay your for the two weeks and give you a target.

Requirements

Ideally you can have a medical sciences/business degree or be studying towards any degree, or may have graduated and be looking for experience. You would not be afraid to knock on the doors of dentists/plastic surgeons/internists etc on the UWS, UES, Park Avenue, Wall Street area. You would use your personality to gain access to their offices and get past the gatekeeper (receptionist). You will be allowed to offer them an incentive (free website for their practice with built in CMS that will allow them to change and content and add any pictures up to 10 pages). This should be enough to at least get you talking to healthcare provider. We will furnish you with a list of healthcare providers that you can offer this to and we will furnish you with the list of questions. It will be important that you stick to the questions that we ask you to ask them and that you are able to record their answers in a clear and concise way.
