Write for JoBlo.com?
Do you love movies? Do you have time to spare? Do you love dishing the scoops, researching news stories, scouring the Net for all things movie-related (and porn) and writing about the latest and greatest to come? If so, you may just be the ideal candidate to help fortify our MOVIE NEWS SECTION (the section that you are in right now), so take a look at the requirements below and see if you're ready, able and wanting to join the JoBlo.com team.
Position: News Editor
What is it exactly? You would be in charge of finding, writing and putting together movie news stories every day of the week-- pictures and all. The person we hire for this gig would be asked to scour the Net for scoops and news, put them together in an entertaining and informative manner (natch) and provide for a MINIMUM of 3-4 stories a day, most likely for the "night shift", after 12pm/midnight (EST), but those hours aren't set in stone just yet (flexible hours would be ideal).
Do I need to be living in a certain area to get this job? Not at all. This job is open to anyone from any country, any city, any street, any gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse... ;) As long as you've got a solid connection to the Internet, email and can surf...you are a likely candidate.
How much does this job pay? Believe it or not, the gig actually pays some money! I say this because up until a while ago, we couldn't afford to pay anyone squat, but a quarterly "bonus" is now in the cards. Nothing that would make you quit your day job, of course, but some cool drinking allowance money (read: lap-dances), I suppose. Oh, and you'll also get to display your writing skills to the world (close to 100,000 unique visitors/day), slap the gig on to your CV/resume, receive an extra cool new email address which ends in @joblo.com and plenty of groovy real-life Internet company work experience (read: handjobs).
What is required of this post?
You must be serious about your application, the vacant position and be, at least, 21 years old.
You must be an excellent writer, bar-none. If you send us an email with spelling and grammatical errors, it will not be considered. Our kind of humor helps as well, but professionalism is most important.
You must have basic .html skills since they are required to enter the stories into our system. No elaborate skills, just the basics, but you also need to have some Photoshop experience as you would need to crop and insert pictures into your stories, etc...
You must be able to commit to this job for at least a period of 6-12 months. You might not be covering the "trade" write-ups, so make sure that you know of some alternate cool movie news items to write about every day.
How do I apply?
Send me a direct email at email@example.com titled NEWS EDITOR and include in it why you think you would be ideally suited for this post (you gotta really sell me with shit to back it up as as well!) MAKE SURE COVER ALL OF THE ABOVE REQUIREMENTS!
Also, include your full name, age, resume (if you've got one), geographical location as well as a few writing samples, preferably short news stories in the same vein as our articles here. Don't write me a f*ckin' book though or send me your English term papers...we get over 100 applications for these things, and succinctness is a definite "plus" in my eyes. Furthermore, if you've already worked on any other website, please provide us with the required URLs so that I could check those out as well.
