We’re looking for someone who has a friendly phone voice that knows how to ask great questions. As part of our process for creating a Bookmercial, we often interview our client’s customers to create examples and case studies for the client’s Bookmercial. These examples help to illustrate certain ideas and help bring a sometimes complicated topic to life in a real life situation.
This is a project based role. You would need to be available during some business hours but have some flexibility as to which hours. You would be responsible for scheduling your own interview times.
You would need to be able to asking probing, follow up questions. Recognize interesting human interest related information that emerges during the interview and ask follow up questions to obtain more information that might make an interesting, humorous, or easy-to-relate to story.
Someone with a journalism background that has done a lot of interviews for publications would be a good fit for this role.
By the end of the interview (which we record so that we may transcribe it), the interview recording should contain a comprehensive and complete set of factual information. Who was involved in the situation? What did they do? When did this happen? Why did it happen (what was the motivation)? Where did this story/situation take place? How did it take place? (These are of course the classic 5W’s and 1 H journalism questions)
In addition, the recording would need to have interesting anedotal tidbits so that we have the option to communicate that factual information in the form of a story or interesting anecdote.
To apply for this position please do the following:
1) Write a brief cover letter on why you want this position and why you’d be good at it.
2) Send your cover letter and resume with compensation history to jobs (at) bookmercial.com. Please make sure your cover letter is in the main body of the email so that we do not have to open an attachment to read it. Your resume may be included as either an attachment or pasted into the email body itself following the cover letter.
