Dream Job: Social Media Intern for Phnom Penh Post
Jul 2, 2009
Southeast Asia’s most awarded newspaper this year by the Society of Publishers in Asia, The Phnom Penh Post, needs a Social Media intern to start as soon as possible.
This job is not for everyone. It will be hard work, does not pay and life in Cambodia can be an adventure (The Internet can also be quite slow). You will, however, be joining a team working to build an independent media in a country in need of independent voices and reporting.
Similar to the Ogilvy internship I posted earlier, the requirements are based around social media skills, so you must have:
- At least 150 followers on Twitter
- At least 200 Facebook friends
- Administrator or creator of at least one Facebook group
- A blog with a Google Page Rank of 2 or higher
You must be self-motivated, self-organized, creative, entrepreneurial and have a burning desire to bring a prestigious traditional media brand into Social Media.
If selected, you will be working with a great deal of autonomy, but in close coordination with the publisher, editor and some of the world’s leading thinkers in Social Media (and also me).
Please send over your CV with a cover letter ASAP to thomas at crampton dot com.
