What a question: Do you want a job here? Most people would jump at the chance to work for 4-Wheel & Off-Road, even for free. It’s often called the best job in the world, and we have an opening. The last time we were in this position our inbox was deluged with applications, which we whittled down to 10 and then picked Ali Mansour for feature editor. Ali had the right combination of knowledge, experience, personality, and willingness to excel in all situations. It was an excellent choice, and Ali has served us well for the past five years. But as with most quality employees, his yearning to progress and excel has led him to a big promotion. Ali is now proudly the tech editor of our sister pub Four Wheeler. While we will miss him on this title, we wish him all the best and know he will continue to learn and improve in the industry we started him out in.
This leaves a position open in our staff; the whole point of this editorial. We are currently taking applications for a feature editor, with all of the rights, privileges, compensation, and responsibility that it affords. It’s a beginning position, and you have to know how to write in our style, be adept on a computer, take killer photographs, wrench like a madman, and have your own ideas and the ability to express yourself. One day you may be slogging through the mud while taking photos and video, and the next day you might be in a suit meeting the president of General Motors. Travel is important, as is meeting deadlines and getting it all done. It’s an all-inclusive ride of your life, but it’s no cakewalk. The work is demanding, grueling, and ultimately satisfying. Interested?
As of this writing we already have a handful of applicants, and the official word isn’t even out. That’s good for us, but we want to shake the tree and see if we missed any qualified people. The easiest way is to send a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org and put “I want a job (your last name)” in the subject line. It’s that simple to apply. You can even include some examples of your work and photography too, and anything else you feel is pertinent to the situation. But remember, the job is more work than not, and at times it’s a 24/7 type of gig. You won’t be scamming a big-block for your buggy or building up your JK for free, so don’t even ask. We work hard and we work honest, and we expect you to hold yourself to the highest standard at all times. Are you up for it? Drop us a note!
