Energy Inside, a Cambridge-based Internet company, is seeking engaged and enthusiastic Internet users with a little bit of free time. We’re inventing a novel mental-health delivery system which will help people cope effectively and achieve greater emotional well-being – this system will be powered by pieces of online media (i.e. videos, pictures, blogposts, Flash toys, or whatever) that YOU will track down for us. Searching through the furthest corners of the Internet, Media Curators will find emotionally uplifting and powerful content; you will be paid $1 for every approved submission, as well as several other cash incentives for specific or high-quality items. Effective curators, working just in their spare time, have made up to $100/week and climbing.
The ideal candidate is an Internet junkie – accustomed to the worlds of blogging, online content sharing, and social networking – with a keen eye for undiscovered or unique content, and a healthy emotional intelligence which will enable him/her to introspectively analyze the emotional impact of media. This person is bright, probably a college graduate (or student), communicative, and willing to take on strange challenges. This person probably already spends a fair amount of time procrastinating on the Internet, often at work or school, and is ready to channel that activity into paid work.
This is a freelance, work-from-home-or-wherever position; there is no contract, nor is there a minimum or maximum amount of submissions.
If this sounds like you, let us know! Along with your cover letter and resume, please feel free to include one link to a piece of media online (video, photo, text, etc.) that you might send to a friend to make her/him feel more positive (i.e. more optimistic, joyful, relaxed or less anxious, worried, depressed). It can be something that would be reassuring, put your friend in a good mood, make your friend laugh, etc. Clean content only, please! Contact: email@example.com
