Wanted: freelance international contributors

PRESS RELEASE FROM JEFF YANG: We are looking for part-time freelance international contributors, what we call Cultural Fluents. Candidates should be based in Europe, Asia, Latin America for now, and should be culturally and linguistically fluent in their regions of residence.

This job is intended as a second job for someone who already has a full time job—ideally in media, journalism, or marketing.

We want people who have a keen eye for the culture they live in, a native curiosity about consumer behaviour, and a certain affinity for analyzing the world and interpreting emerging trends around them.

People who are active and smart bloggers are nearly perfect candidates; our Fluents will be expected to essentially blog for us, by participating in a Global Insights Community we’re launching, submitting observations and commenting on observations submitted by others. Being up on the local media is key, but we also want primary observations—walking around with a still/video camera and potting interesting things is part of the gig.

If this sounds like fun to you (or if you do it for free anyway), and you live in any of the following countries—UK, Germany, France, Russia, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Japan, Korea, China, India, Canada—eail me at jyang@iconoculture.com with your resume for more details.

Compensation is a fixed monthly rate, and is proportionate to market standards in the target countries. There is also an initial allotment for equipment purchase or upgrade (e.g., digital camera).

  7. Hey, I realize that this is about a year late; but are you still looking for writers? I’d really really like to get involved with this…

  8. Dear colleagues,

    I’ve been in the media business for some two decades and now I’m happy to offer you my expertise you’d likely regret if missing.

    My major areas of expertise have been business news, economy, socal & cultural trends and political affairs. Therefore, my writing is not simply mechanical a process but it’s coupled with the in-depth awareness of the topics I work with.

    As you see, I actually know the ropes in journalism/writing, and you’ve got a perfect opportunity to test it soon.

    I’m going to Moscow, Russia in mid-May for at least one-year period, so I’ll be happy to cover the events in the 12-member Commonwealth of Independent States plus 3 Baltic countries on the regurlar basis.

    Once again, I am pretty sure our co-operation is a rare win-win situation one can’t afford to miss.

    So don’t look any further; contact me ASAP. I hope to hear from you soon.

    Best regards,

    Igor SEREBRYANY
