Description

Greetings. My name is Jeff Hall. I’m a former VP from the Los Angeles Times.

I’m spearheading an online startup called “THE LATEST” (I nabbed the URL, thelatest.com, way back in 1996).

Last month, 55 million Google searches included the word “latest” (the latest news, latest justin bieber, latest iphone, etc.).

THE LATEST has the potential to become a world-class brand. Everyone wants to know the latest. But keeping up is hard. We’re all drowning in information.

Several smart people (media executives, PhDs, student interns from all around the world) and I literally spent the last few years tackling the issue of “information overload” head on. I’m happy to report we’ve come up with something pretty darned useful.

THE LATEST seeks to launch in June of 2014. There is much work to be done between now and then.

We have a need for maybe two marketing research interns who can help us with branding, competitive analysis, identifying potential strategic partners, vendors, etc.

Since we don't yet have a site, you will have to be pretty smooth to get your foot in the door, but what we hope you can accomplish is to get a dialogue started so that when we do launch, we can slide right in and see what we can do. If you create a relationship for us that pays off, we'll happily pay you a percentage for your efforts.

It's possible this will turn into a real (paying) job soon after we launch, which we hope will be this June.

Interested? Send a cover letter and resume to: hr@thelatest.com.

Thanks for your time and consideration.

Jeff Hall, CEO

Responsibilities

We'll sit down and go over a fairly long list of marketing research assignments.

You will take it from there.

We are a startup, so we are inventing this as we go along. We can't "tell you how to do this." So you have to be fairly comfortable figuring out the best way to find and package the information we seek. There is no right or wrong way to do this.

Requirements

Analytical mind.

Good at presenting data/findings.

Good with PowerPoint, Excel, other such programs.

Writing skill.
