We expect our editors to be as passionate about marketing & creating content as we are! Age & experience is not a criteria – we eagerly welcome creative thinkers & self-motivated people.
What is the SOP for an Editor to join our team?
We have a 2 step process to assess interest -
1. You could submit 1 piece to us, after studying the existing posts. The format would be the same, and this submission would help us understand your skills.
The topic would have to be fresh & innovative, and preferably something that hasn’t been covered on our page yet. If you want to repeat a topic, you must provide a different perspective to it & include completely different examples
The LinkedIn posts have a written post + PPT. The written post is of 1300 characters (200 words approx). The PPT could be around 5-6 slides giving pictures along with a brief description, in a 1:1 slide ratio
This submission would be assessed on these parameters – Research, in-depth analysis, logical flow, language clarity & comprehensiveness of the article
The PPT would be assessed on these parameters – Simplicity of design, effectiveness in conveying information in crisp & clear manner, depiction of content, logical flow of slides, usage of ample number of examples to support the topic
2. Once you've submitted, we can have a conversation with all the team members where we set the expectations and also understand where exactly you’d fit in. This helps us evaluate whether you could be a part of other teams, apart from content.
