This help-wanted advert is a sign of the times and should be a lesson to all young people looking to enter journalism. You NEED those multimedia skills!
Shanghai-based photographer Sharron Lovell, who has a great portfolio, seeks a part time fixer/assistant/translator to work on an assignment in Shanghai from as soon as possible until early September. (2 to 3 days a week)
The project has been funded by the London School of Economics and combines a practical photography/multi-media project with an academic slant. It’s a global project looking at media representations of poverty. It should be very hands on and interesting to work on so I need someone who can really move with people. A journalism student or graduate or someone interested in journalism would be perfect. Multi-media experience, knowledge of Final Cut Pro or audio editing would also be a big plus.
Please if anyone knows anyone suitable please pass this mail to them or their details to me,
