AFC Newsroom - JOURNALISTS NEEDED - UPDATED

Postby Matt » Wed Feb 02, 2011 4:54 pm

WE ARE NOW CLOSED FOR SUBMISSIONS.

Guys guys guys!

I intend to soon launch "The AFC Newsroom" - a secret hive in the forum where a couple of AFC journalists will reside, writing and publishing news stories onto the main site, the forum and the social networking sites we use. The main page will be getting a complete revamp soon, so the news is going to become a big part of the AFC fandom (and believe it or not, Penguin might start using our news feed soon...)

I'm struggling for time at the moment to keep the site running, plan this year out and do a lot of other stuff, so I'm looking to get two journalists to help. This is how it will work: Whenever I get new information, I'll package it up and reference it, put it in a new topic in the new 'AFC Newsroom' forum, and then the journalists can write the stories and publish to the Forum/Site.

For being an AFC Journalist, you will, of course, get privileges. Journalists will get:
- Access to The Newsroom.
- New Topic Posting permission in "The Gates"
- A custom rank name of "AFC Journalist" (if requested)
- Posting Access to the News on the main site.
- Access to a Hootsuite/TweetDeck account so that they can post announcements to Facebook/Twitter.
- Access to the Tumblr page.
- After the first 20 official news stories have been posted (or after 3 months of service), the two journalists will gain access to the Shiny Room for services rendered. They can also get, if they would like, a handwritten letter detailing their achievements and services to the site to append to any CVs or references.



APPLICATION FORM:
Please PM applications to myself.

To apply, you MUST have:
- A minimum of 4 months membership .
- Good quality posts (in terms of grammar and writing style)
- A minimum age of 14.

To apply to be an AFC news journalist, please fill out the following form. The final task is to write a news story based on the following information (which has been made up).

Disney have announced that the Artemis Fowl movie will be released during summer of 2012, will be starring Aidan Mitchell as Artemis and Jason Statham as Butler. The film will closely resemble the book but a surprise ending has been added.

Not off to a good start! I'm going to need all of the information I sent through to journalists read through and reported on properly! We shall see though!

I've had a couple of applications through now, so I'm going to set a submission date.

All submissions must be in by 8th February.

I am not going to be a robot. I will be laid back and chillaxed. After all, I am only human and mistakes can and will happen. :)

Reading an application form, however, is something that you'll need to start doing a bit more thoroughly. I speak from experience. ;)

So if I was the CEO of Google or Microsoft and I wanted to hire a computer programmer, I'd look for who was honest over who had the qualifications and the experience?

All Arty's saying is that he is human, so can make mistakes, and is honest. I respect him for that. He could be perfect for the job, for all you know. It's good he's being relaxed and honest about himself and this while doing this.

I would apply but I'm 14 on 15/04/11 :(

I see you too! XD

I completely accept that we're all human, and can make mistakes. My point is...

Yes, be honest, I highly respect people who tell it as it is, but in the situation he's referring to it's not what counts.

it is good he is being the way he is - he's doing the right thing, and the right thing may not be the perfect way to get the job, but doing what's right is more important that what is best. Arty's being genuine, which is very good, and he's got a sense of humor. Don't be so cold and robotic. You're too business-like.
Also, you need to judge him on his work, but his charater is also important, and so far I've seen nothing but good from him. :3

Where have I said that he shouldn't be the way he is? And I'm in no way being cold or 'robotic,' I'm simply saying that in order for you to get a job, telling your 'would-be' employer that you couldn't be bothered to read the application wouldn't help your case in applying for a job. Whilst being honest about it would at least rectify the situation, you'd be much better off reading the thing in the first place. ;)

Basically, don't take it so seriously/personally. Matt was just making a helpful comment that people should keep in mind when looking for jobs in the future.

Now that's enough, let's stay on topic please.

I have had some bumps on the track but I am sure you have overcome worse. I am sure you all have noticed improvements in my behaviour anyway. :)
