MEDIA JOB OPPORTUNITIES at GDP ASSOCIATES LTD, FRIDAY 27, JULY 2012
Can you dream of producing a publication that can rival TIME, Forbes, Ebony and GQ? Can you turn waste to wealth? That is, turn badly written scripts into award-winning stuff?
Are you as creative as anyone in the world? Can you drive your team to achieve set goals? Well, if you've got a brilliant brain and an impressive CV, then you're the ONE we've been looking for. What took you so long?
You think you can write first-class prose on business or politics or the arts? Can you conduct excellent interviews that the whole world would like to read?
Are you good at breaking the rules so that journalism can be released from jail? Have you done a bit of all of these before, at least for three years?
You fit the bill then.
Have you got potential? In that case, come and grab a job with us. We will train you. A little experience in writing and reporting helps (as if you don't know).
And good education too.
Do you see yourself as a photographer or a photo journalist? Is photography a job or an art to you? If you tick the right boxes and click the right buttons, you are hereby declared wanted. But, sorry, age must be on your side.
Don't confuse business centre planners with graphic artists. We mean someone who understands the art and science of magazine layout and design. We mean someone who can as well end up working for any magazine anywhere in the world. A good knowledge of Design is a masterstroke.
HEAD, ACCOUNTS AND ADMIN
Are you chartered? May we charter you to set up and run an efficient accounting system? A good knowledge of tax management as well as office/personnel administration will do you some good.
Experience always counts, doesn't it?
SECRETARY/PA TO CEO
The CEO does not suffer fools gladly-but he also needs somebody to organise him so that he doesn't get into trouble too often. To organise the CEO, of course, you must be as good as the CEO (okay, that's a joke, but why not?) A previous experience is better than none.
ADVERT & SPECIAL PROJECTS EXECUTIVES
How can a world-class magazine survive without money? Your job is to bring in the money creatively. If you don't have drive, cannot sniff a good business opportunity and cannot work independently, you may get arrested for applying!
HEAD, CIRCULATION & SUBSCRIPTION
How good are you at selling a new product in the media? It's tougher than selling ice to the Inuit or TVs to the blind. But if you've done it very well before, then you can do it again.
Now, that's where you come in! It is the duty of every member of staff to make sure the company prospers. We'll pay good salaries, definitely, but we'll pay even better salaries and handsome bonuses as business gets better-with your input.
Send your application plus an up-to-date CV and a 500-word biography of yourself to: email@example.com
NOTE: Indicate the position you are applying in the subject of your email.
DUE DATE: August 8, 2012
