It's True! We NEED Help!
ANN is looking to fill TWO upcoming
positions... one fairly quickly and one for early in 2004. ANN
is preparing to offer a number of new services and increased
coverage... and doing it with the same old crew just isn't going to
cut it... we're going to need (more) help! ANN is
(first) looking for a solid aero-writer/editor to handle
a demanding four day work week and
occasional special event coverage.
Yup... Having beaten our current
staff black and blue (a good color on a few of them...), it's time
for new blood--we're looking for a person to handle a
permanent four day a week gig (Monday-Thur or Tues-Fri), in
coordination with our weekend news-gnomes.
The qualified respondent needs the following… SOLID
aviation/aerospace writing and journalism credentials/abilities,
SOLID photographic/graphic web smarts, Good basic web skills (light
HTML know-how and some grasp of photo-editing) and E-Mail skills, a
strong work/journalism ethic, and an ability to meet and adhere to
tight deadlines;as well as RELIABLE full-time access to a
fairly speedy Internet connection (DSL, ADSL, T1, Pipeline to the
Almighty, etc...), a computer with the ability to keep up with
a number of graphic chores and editorial efforts, and the ability
to work with a very strange crew of ANN weirdoes. Since this job is
computer based, it does not matter where you live and we are, of
course, unconcerned about your workspace so long as the job gets
done (and the less info we have about someone working in pink
shorts and fuzzy bunny slippers, the better).
The hours are long, the pay sucks, and the management is pretty
short on people skills… but you can join an intriguing group
of people that are continually setting the aviation news business
on its ear and be part of some VERY exciting upgrades and
capabilities that are on the fast track for introduction in the
coming weeks. We WILL hire for at least one position ASAP
and another fairly soon thereafter. Respond with writing samples,
background and CV to Help Wanted!
We’re also looking for the
following… an experienced web/print-conversant graphic
artist to help us with a number of small projects ranging from
print ads and marketing documents, to book layout and cover
designs. Experience with animated GIFs and Flash formats are
particularly valuable. Work will be offered on a contract/fee basis
and requires no on-site work (which, of course, means you have to
have all the requisite computer assets at your disposal). To the
right person, this is an on-going gig as we have a LOT of projects
in the offing and there is enough to provide a competent artist a
fair bit of part-time income.
Note: ANN will be reviewing resumes and CVs
the first week of December... so be sure to get yours in ASAP, so
that it gets full consideration!
