In order to be considered:
Every applicant must do complete “homework task” in order to be considered for this position.
Your assignment is as follows:

Assemble a list of the TOP 50 Graphic Novels/Trade Paperbacks that “Any Good Comic Store” should always have in stock. This does not have to be ranked in any specific order, it is just a list of 50 total and should include a mix of all kinds of graphic novels/trades.

Also put together a TOP 10 list of Graphic Novels/Trade Paperbacks that “Any Good Comic Store” should always have for each of these four sub-categories —> Mainstream Publishers / Indy Publishers / Kids Graphic Novels / Manga

You may research this however you choose —> creative internet searches, your personal opinion and asking your friends are all good options.

Please send the “homework” in the body of an email  or as an attached text doc or PDF format please. It does not need to be fancy at all.

Please also complete a TATE’S job application, which is available here: http://tatescomics.com/jobapp
The application is a PDF file. Resume can also be attached, but is not required.

Send completed assignment and application via email to –> emailus@tatescomics.com
Do not drop it off in-person, you must email to be considered. We will reply to let you know that it was received and contact the top contenders for an in-person interview. There is no deadline to submit, but ASAP would be wise since we are looking to fill this position immediately.

Please direct any questions to us via email! In-Store Staff will not necessarily have answers for you.

At this time, this is the only job position we are looking to immediately fill. If this is not the one for you… keep an eye out for future postings!
