How to Apply to Portent:

  • Rule #2: Email your resume and cover letter (less than two paragraphs please with Rule #4), to [email protected].
  • Rule #3: Misspellings, bad grammar, and requests to work remotely, will land you in the auto-reject pile.
  • Rule #4: To apply for this position, send us your cover letter, resume and include a PPC ad that sells yourself with a 25 character headline, 70 character body, 25 character display URL. Excessive punctuation will immediately send your ad to the reject pile, so avoid those triple exclamation points.
