Description

Imperative Times is an online resource for all of the latest breaking news. We at Imperative times also cover music and culture. Imperative times is dedicated to breaking news in a consolidated format making it easy for users to stay in touch with the world around them. We are looking for creative, energetic, self-motivated individuals to contribute to the site. We do not require you to have a college degree or high school diploma etc. As long as you are looking for an opportunity to work hard there is an opportunity available to you. Keep in mind there is a possibility to grow with the publication, if you prove yourself.

We are currently using aggregated content to build up the site, we are interjecting original content as well. The plan is to move out of aggregation and into 90% of our content being original.

Imperative Times is currently looking candidates to fill the following positions.
1. Writers, preferably individuals with some journalism experience. Whether it has been for a school paper or a larger company. If you do not have prior journalism experience, but you have been regarded as an efficient writer. We are willing you to bring you up to speed. It is nothing that you won't be able to handle.
2. Editor's, if you are proficient in AP writing style, we need you.
3. Audio, Video engineers. If you can handle a camera and edit video please contact us.
We will require you to be dedicated to what you would be assigned. Remember if you dedicate yourself and show promise there is potential possibilities of us bringing you on full-time. We will have deadlines, you will be required to meet those deadlines. If you are given an assignment it is not to be taken lightly. We do have occasional meetings, not everyday but at least once or twice a week to touch base. This is subject to change to to circumstances of a project you would be working on.

You will be required to have a computer with internet connection. We are a mobile work force, this is very important. If you do not have a laptop or don't have access to one. I am sorry this internship is not for you.

Imperative Times updates their site around the clock. Each contributor is expected to post up to 10 to 15 times a day. Unless you are writing original content, then those numbers might be slightly adjusted. We are currently focusing on re-posting to boost viewership, yet you still need to post original content. There needs to be a balance. For every 5 re-posts there needs to be an article of original content(written by you). Any original content produced needs to be sent to the editors for evaluation. We will edit then resend your document via email after editing process has been completed. It's going to be a lot of work, keep in mind there is room for promotion. So keep it up up. Remember the more posts you generate along with proficiency benefits YOU.

Responsibilities

We are currently focusing on re-posting to boost viewership, yet you still need to post original content. There needs to be a balance. For every 3 re-posts there needs to be an article of original content(written by you). Any original content produced needs to be sent to the corresponding emails above for evaluation. We will edit then resend your document via email after editing process has been completed. It's going to be a lot of work, keep in mind there is room for promotion. So keep it up up. Remember the more posts you generate along with proficiency benefits YOU.

DO NOT post anything until you get the go ahead from Nate, Sean or myself. Spend this time becoming proficient with squarespace and practicing writing columns within the proper format you will find within the Associated Press's guidelines. Post as much as six to ten times a day.
