More About the Kind of Practitioners We Are Looking For:
We are looking for three very different kind of practitioners. But in each person we would like to see someone interested in the following values:
Compassionate, Energetic, Bubbly, Pro-active, and Creative
One person we need is a fire-earth type.
Likes working with people and being hands on. Clinician oriented, but interested in business somewhat. Networker. Wants to create. Has family values at his/her core. Empathetic to the public needs. A team-player and willing to represent Blue Lotus at important local community gatherings.
One person we need is a wood-earth type.
Hard working, fiercely loyal, organized. Likes tasks and running the show. Will be groomed for management of clinics and business strategy. Wants to take on the world; feels like superman/woman. Skills are important too, loves to learn, always humble and willing to button-up and let the patient speak. But fearless and undaunted by lots of work. Stable, however, without too many health conditions that will hamper reliability. Flexible, yet firm. Likes to take charge but knows how to tow the line.
One person needs to be a metal-water or other similar type.
In contrast to fire-waters, this acupuncturist can come off a bit cold albeit quite stable. But it isn’t that he/she doesn’t care, it’s just that they are introspective, quiet, and observant. Willing to go to any lengths to succeed and help the business succeed. Wants a long term career with a business that is going to make it. Solid, stolid, and tough-minded. A far-reaching willpower and yet can smile and enjoy life and bend the rules it the situation requires it. However, knows that policies are in place for a reason. Can tolerate, however, earthy people’s tendencies to be over-empathetic, or wood people’s over-domineering personalities and control habits. Can manage type A people easily.
It is not important that any one type has certain skill sets listed in the ad above, but we will be looking for three different people to fit these ideals. If YOU think you are one of the three, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your life story and why you think you’re the perfect fit, and we will set up a Skype call. Yes, we want to hear your story, read your resume’s and get to know YOU. We are interested in what makes you tick. If you wrote any essays or publications for the school or contests for scholarships, please include those.
About Blue Lotus Health & Acupuncture | www.bluelotushealth.com | @BlueLotusAcupun
We are GROWING [over 1,500% in the last year]. And we will continue growing till we can provide all of Kentucky, West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania with the complementary, ‘alternative’ Traditional and especially Oriental healthcare it needs and deserves.
We believe in working hard and serving people. We also believe in having a strong business model and being willing to adapt and grow, and try new things.
This is a fast paced job, not a cushy office job. Although the position is for treating, we are looking for partners in helping us grow this business. We will be a large office, and our new location in Lexington will be a 6-8 treatment room facility with kitchen, yoga room, and hired full time cook. We will have an herbal apothecary.
Applicants must sign a Confidentiality/Non-compete Agreement and be willing to move to Lexington, Winchester, Richmond, or Berea. Travel between cities will be required. Only one position will be Lexington only (for now); the others will require work in Berea and/or Lexington with the possibility of travel to a third Winchester location within a year.
