In January 2017, my husband and I decided to launch a small media company to cover the world’s biggest news stories, and we decided to start with the most popular ones.
Our goal: to publish as much as we can on our own, and share it with you as quickly as possible.
It was an ambitious project and we had a lot of expectations, but the challenge was to get the right team together, to deliver on what we wanted to deliver, and to make sure we did it well.
And that meant doing things that we weren’t comfortable doing ourselves, so we had to be creative.
The team we selected for the project was a mix of seasoned professionals, like our founders and management team, and a diverse group of freelancers, who had previously done great things.
We’ve taken a look at the team we’ve hired, and the stories we’re covering.
It’s a fascinating journey.
Our first challenge The challenge for a digital journalist is that the landscape is changing rapidly, with more than a billion people online every day.
We needed a team that would understand the challenges and be able to meet them.
The challenges we faced were daunting.
For starters, there’s a lot to do, so even though we’re writing on our laptop, we needed a dedicated team to make it all work.
We also had to learn to work with people from different backgrounds.
This wasn’t a problem if we could have hired people with similar experience, but it was especially challenging if we didn’t.
It wasn’t easy to hire and train a team in digital media, because you need to be prepared to teach them new things.
A team of digital journalists at the helm When I arrived, we had two full-time staff members and a small team of freelancer writers and designers.
Our budget for the first year was $5,000.
In 2017, we doubled the budget to $10,000 and increased our number of people from 10 to 15.
Our initial hiring process We started by interviewing people for roles we wanted them to fill.
We interviewed them on their work experience and interviewed them for the roles we felt most comfortable with, which in this case were the ones we felt were the most suited to our vision of the future.
We invited everyone in our team, as well as potential candidates, to an online interview.
It turned out that most people who applied weren’t qualified to be a freelancer journalist.
We learned that they had to have a degree, be able do work in a professional environment, and be comfortable working in a team environment.
At this point, we also had some people who we had hired who didn’t fit our vision.
These people had experience working with freelancers and were not well-versed in digital journalism.
We realized that, at a time when we needed to be ready to adapt to the changing media landscape, we couldn’t hire people who weren’t experienced in digital and weren’t ready to be freelancers.
This led us to the second challenge: adapting to the demands of the rapidly evolving landscape of digital journalism, where people work from home, access to social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, and mobile devices are becoming a mainstay.
Digital media is a global industry.
It involves people all over the world, with different skills and different motivations.
For example, our team members had previously been freelancers for some of the world´s most popular media brands, but we needed them to be digital journalists first.
This meant that they’d need to understand the nuances of their respective media platforms and the needs of their audience, while also being able to work independently and with other people who were able to get in touch with them on a daily basis.
To meet these challenges, we hired people from outside the company, from all different backgrounds, and they quickly became our team.
At first, they weren’t very familiar with the company and the news they were covering, but as we started to grow and learn from them, they started to see the value in the work we were doing and wanted to help us.
At the end of the interview process, we invited them to come work with us.
This team of journalists is a mix: freelancers who have already been published in national and international publications; journalists who have worked in other media and have the necessary skills and knowledge to do a similar job; and journalists who are new to the job, and have a strong desire to contribute to the company.
They are also able to offer the expertise they need to take on the challenging work, and get the best from their experience.
They all come with a unique set of skills and strengths, and their diverse backgrounds will allow them to work on a range of different projects.
The freelancers’ approach to the project We decided to make our own hiring process, with freelancer interviewers and writers, who are familiar with our clients and our newsroom.
