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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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).
