If you’re reading this, you’ve been shortlisted. Yay!
What do I need to write about?
Trending news, curated stories from Twitter, Reddit, Instagram or any social media, entertainment listicles, bollywood, pop culture, movie reviews, etc. The most important thing is the human touch to your posts, should be hilarious and slightly informal.. like the way you talk to your friends. If you’re an internet junkie, you probably know what I’m talking about. But I’ll still attach a few category samples here:
Or basically anything relatable or funny stuff people would like to read.
You can also hunt down videos that are different and funny. Standups work the best.
How do I make it attractive and fun to read?
We don’t need to tell you how important photos are these days, but with recent change in social media, memes have become an important way to attract and make audience read your stories. Gifs make the page heavy, so only 1 gif per post is allowed. If you lift something off the internet, make sure to give the due credits. Time to meme up!
Can I choose my own categories?
Of course, you can. But in the beginning, posts will be assigned to you based on your interests. Later you can pitch in new post ideas.
Okay, but how frequently do I need to write?
Well, you can write as many posts as you want without compromising on the quality. But we expect at least 3-4 posts a week. You can choose your area of interest, or if you wanna switch to different categories, that’s also fine by us.
What’s the word limit?
That depends on what you’re writing about, really. The more, the better. But let’s just say 300 words is minimum.
How much would I get paid?
On top of your 1000 rupees per month, we are offering a performance based payout. 30% of whatever Adsense money we generate through your articles on our official page. So, if your article were to go viral, you’d definitely make money. But here’s the deal, we’re still in transitional period and not going all out with posts on the page, so our editors might be very choosy with what they share with people.
What about certificate?
The Indian Idiot is under the parent company called Vanity No Apologies pvt ltd. You shall get a certificate after completion of your internship. But if you like working here, we would be glad to offer you a better position after your internship, given that we like your work.
