纽约时报招聘记者,首先要求会玩

成为纽约时报的记者或许是世界上最好的文字工作之一。这个世界数一数二媒体的记者可以世界各地到处走,有的地方繁荣似纽约香港的,有的地方危险如叙利亚刚果,除了有丰富的报酬,说不定拿个什么奖成名也是未可知的。如果你喜欢写博客,喜欢摄影,喜欢旅游 ,喜欢玩,当然一定要热爱学习,你就可以去应聘纽约时报记者职位。这篇文章本身有点华而不实的样子,但作者列出的纽约时报记者要求的五点,再结合那个图表,倒是非常有意思的。

首先第一点,要有一本被充分利用的护照,表示你有世界各地游玩的经历;第二,有能力认出各种建筑地标,证明你有一定的学识;第三, 在运用语言上(英语)要很流利,在社交网络上要很流行;第四,要活到老学到老的学习精神;最后一点才是和记者技能具体相关的,要有能力快速到达事发地点,抓住事件本质,用文字和图像营造出一个令人信服的故事,这个是见功力的要求。总结这个应聘条件,需要应聘者要家庭稍微富足,因为旅行要花钱,晒贴要有资本;有社交影响力,Instagram上没有5000个粉丝就不用去应聘了;接受过良好教育,会写文章,基本上理科男就不用做无用功了。实际上看来,在美国,还是有很多人认为自己具有以上的条件的,虽然申请截止日期是10月31日,到28日已经有超过3000人提交申请了,说起来现在的年轻人谁不是那样的?旅行,晒图(炫富),写博客,这些都是现代日常生活的必做的啊,只是能把所有这些都做到super的就不多了。

For avocado toast eaters everywhere: A definitive guide to THAT New York Times gig

Molly Hunter Korroch
Want to know if you’ve got what it takes to land the best job ever in the history of the world? Scroll down to the flowchart.
If you’re a journalist and haven’t been under a rock for the last few days, you likely noticed the implosion following Monday’s New York Times job listing:
“The New York Times wants to hire a journalist to travel the world”
Qualifications include:
A well-worn passport
Ability to recognize starchitects
Fluency in both English and social media
Must be a permanent student of life
“The ability to parachute into a place and distill its essence and to render a compelling tale with words and images.”
As of this morning, over 3,000 people have applied. It remains to be seen if this is some sort of Suzanne Collins-esque social experiment. Either way, applications are due on October 31, 2017. May the odds be ever in your favor. (And can we all say a quick prayer for the poor souls who are currently wading through 3,000 applications?)
