The football season is upon us, the San Diego Chargers are less than a week away from playing a meaningful football game and BFTB is looking for ways to expand to handle all of it. At the behest of my superiors, we've created two (paid) positions on the staff that we're looking to fill.
- Beat Writer - We've been over this one before. Basically looking for someone that can make their presence known at Chargers Park, in the press box at games, etc. We want someone that knows how to get quotes, build relationships and file daily progress reports. The more availability and experience with covering breaking news, the better. The pay is very low, so we're mostly aiming for students that are looking for experience and exposure rather than professional journalists.
- Social Media Manager - Lots of opportunity here. You'd be in charge of running the BFTB Facebook page, the Google+ page, our YouTube page and doing some stuff on Twitter, as well as making sure we're getting all of our stuff in front of the right audiences on Pinterest and Reddit. This is more than just copying and pasting links, we're talking genuine interaction with the crowd. It is "social" media after all.
