Internet journalists (BB-966D8)

Found in: Talent IN

Description:
Job DescriptionInternet journalists Another small breed of Internet professionals are Internet journalists - people who develop content exclusively for a content based website. Rediff On The Net is the first Indian publication on the Internet without a corresponding print counterpart. While most publications in India put their printed content on the Internet, Rediff On The Net has a team of journalists who work exclusively to report news and write features on , as and when stories break. Making the switch to Internet journalism requires the traditional journalist to be conversant with HTML to be able to directly file his story or news as a webpage, allowing news to be instantly updated on the Web, instead of introducing delays via a separate team of people who convert news items to webpages. While all the job profiles mentioned above have varying requirements, one common requirement for anyone applying for a job in the Internet industry is exposure to the Internet. Shailesh Joshi, VP, Operations, Rediff On The Net, goes a step ahead and looks out for people with a passion for the Internet, besides expertise in their respective field. All said and done, a job in the Internet industry is not for everyone. A passion for the Internet is a must - and that love is what makes the long hours (often 10-12 hours a day, some all-nighters), and unreasonable deadlines worth it all - that's job satisfaction for you. As for salaries - well that's another area that's vague and covers a wide range, depending on the size of the organisation, and the applicant's experience and expertise. Suffice to say that salaries are usually in keeping with the average salaries in other industries - an Internet programmer would earn as much as he would in a software development firm, while a sales marketing person would earn as much as his counterpart in say, the consumer goods industry.,
