It helps to have some familiarity with basic finance, but the work is personal finance rather than highly advanced, so you can learn as you go.

Work when you please! I take vacations a few times each year. FQF is understanding though they aren't paid vacations because we're all independent contractors. At least for now. Perhaps we will transition to employee status one day.

Yes, that is our policy. In the past, we would only let applicants know either way only if we had a dialogue going with them. Now we let everyone know.

Hello! Great question. It depends mostly on the role and the number of applicants. We review applicants generally every other business day. We understand you value expediency so we work hard to review as soon as possible. We're sorry we're unable to give a simple answer. In general, days, but do not lose faith if you don't hear back for weeks. Most importantly, if we see a mutually beneficial relationship, we will get back with you. So whether it be days or weeks, every single applicant is considered.
