Happy New Year and New Beginnings
Wow, time surely does fly and as today ushered in the New Year it also ushered in my new website and the job that came with it.
In collaboration with a friend, I am proud to announce InTechno.co, a tech website that strives to provide you with the best technology news there is. I would also like to announce my new role as its Managing Editor.
As to what will become of altIdeas? I will continue to post interesting stuff I find on the interent, but not on a regular basis. This will become more of a personal blog, then actually delivering news as I originally intended it to be.
That is all.
May all of you have a great year ahead of you!
Salary will be in the $40,000 – $50,000 range, depending on experience, and include full benefits.
Requirements: This is not an entry-level job. Applicants must have a minimum of 2 years of book production experience. They should also be proficient in InDesign and have some familiarity with book manufacturing. A strong interest in working in independent publishing, and a familiarity with our books is also strongly recommended, as is a sense of humor.
A Word from the EiC: Lookin for a Managing Ed
With two issues successfully published and trying to find the right time to transition into print, the editorial responsibilities are building up. Keeping in mind that I am also a postgraduate student with academic responsibilities, the time has come to siphon off some of those (editorial) responsibilities onto a set of capable shoulders. Apart from the academic side, there is also the advertising and publishing side of the equation to focus on and if I am honest: I do need the help.
If you’re interested, please know that after the preliminary CV stage, the ‘interviews’ will be held over Skype: this is an important position and as we move towards a paying structure, you will play an instrumental role in ensuring a smooth transition. You will be integrated into an already well-oiled machine that will only continue to become more formidable as we spread out our wings. Your focus will be on usurping the managerial editorial responsibilities: working with me to streamline a central theme around which the issue will be constructed, following up with Articles Editors and Senior Articles Editors, Poetry and Fiction editorial teams and Contributing Editors along with the Film and Book critics to ensure all deadlines are being met. Your ideas and suggestions on improving editorial content will also be put into practice and should come fairly often. It will be your responsibility to coordinate editorial meetings and collaborate with me to find the right time to meet.
So if you’re interested and you think you can handle the position fairly and justly, have the required dedication and an ability to see the bigger picture, send in your CVs / resumes to email@example.com. You can be located anywhere in the world: we’re a cosmopolitan editorial team; nationality isn’t important, dedication and loyalty are.
Hope to hear from you guys soon!
“I think I have done enough journalism that I would be a really good serial killer. ”—Managing Editor, Overheard in the Newsroom
so much editing!
i’m about to take over as managing editor on an international, quarterly-published psychology magazine. i’ve been heading-up advertising for the publication since day-1 but stepping into this new role comes with a great deal of extra responsibility… including reading/editing 18 submissions before tuesday!
umm, i thought i was on vacation?!
It is almost a month since the last time I visited my blog, and surely I missed a lot of funny things, the reason is that I have been chosen to be one of the Staffers for our Student Paper,namely Aeronautica. I’m the Managing Editor of our student publication and for me it is a very tiring job…
People’s perception when they hear the title Managing Editor…
What other’s think I do…
What my Parents think I do…
What my Classmates Think I do…
What I really do…
during Classroom Discussions…
During Office Hours…
You see it is not Easy but still Enjoyable LOL
Managing Editor, at your service
The Squire Publication 2012-2013 announced in its latest post at this latest hour that I am the managing editor AND lead broadcaster. I know what lead broadcaster means, it’s the managing editor I have no clue about. Seriously. How can I keep some people, numbering almost 30 hard-wired writers into doing work? Leadership is not my skill and it is needed in this position.
Broadcasting is a skill that I’m familiar with. Almost all broadcasters mastered the science of speaking into an unknown audience, but the only problem left is mastering the art. Now with Kuya Angelo, and Kuya Marvin, our gold-medal head broadcasters, and Kuya Gab, and some girls, all the risk depends upon me, Jillian, and Jericho Aguitan, an incoming 3rd year veteran with a golden voice. Jillian Librodo has been my companion in the frontlines, with her American accent voice she bagged the division category last year but lost in the Regionals (as what the story goes from the founding of our school.)
But you see, we have our goals, the Letran Broadcasting Team and I. The goal is simple: NATIONALS. To rise and conquer our regional background, and compete in the NATIONAL level, with every energy, that is for NATIONALS only, that we can muster. We must try, or else the legacy of our batch would be never seen into light by the next-generation broadcasters.
Already the sudden imagination of that gives me chills.
And now I’m expected to become a more time-shrewd man, since I got much more things to do, and the schedule that is normally free is already clogged with deadlines, meetings, and such.
So help me God.
