Takin’ Care of Business: Tips for Business Tasks

Business Task
Every day, more and more businesses are turning to TaskRabbit for help. Whether they need a great customer service representative, an efficient and organized office manager, or a sales whiz, businesses know they can find trustworthy and professional TaskRabbits to get the job done. If you like working in an office setting or want to expand your professional network, look for longer-term opportunities by selecting the “Jobs” filter on the right side of the Open Tasks page.

Doing a great job on a business task requires special considerations. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Write a great cover letter

To apply for the longer-term business tasks under the “Jobs” filter, you’ll need an up-to-date LinkedIn profile and an awesome cover letter. Your cover letter should highlight your work experience and relevant skills, as well as your enthusiasm to help. Do some research on the business before you write your cover letter so you can show them that you care about their mission and that you’re excited contribute.

Be mindful of office etiquette and confidentiality

We’ve all heard the saying “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” When you’re working in an office, do as the employees do. If everyone in the office is wearing a nice shirt and tie, then you should dress a little nicer as well. Be friendly with folks working around you, and respect confidentiality within the office. You may be asked to sign an NDA (especially for usability testing tasks), and should always remember to keep what you see and hear to yourself.

When you work for a business, you represent that business

When you’re working as a greeter at a company party or as a temporary office manager, you’re the face of that company for all of the guests you meet. This is an important responsibility. If someone has a question about the company that you can’t answer, kindly help them find someone who can. Your business TaskPoster will appreciate knowing they can trust you to represent them well, and will likely hire you again and again. Businesses are always coming up with new task needs, so it really pays to do a great job.
