Che cosa bisogna saper fare per lavorare nella redazione on line del New York Times
Fiona Spruill, responsabile della redazione Web (60 persone) del New York Times risponde in questi giorni sul sito alle domande dei lettori. A uno che chiede quali conoscenze e attitudini deve avere chi voglia lavorare nella newsroom Web del Nyt, Fiona risponde così:
Our Web newsroom is closely integrated with the print newsroom, so I am looking for people who can flourish in both worlds and who I could see fitting into many different jobs at The Times. Among other things, producers are responsible for packaging the news online and for creating original multimedia. As a result, they need to have solid journalism credentials and strong technical skills.
On the technical side, we want people to walk in the door with a proficiency in Photoshop, HTML and blogging software, and an understanding of Web publishing systems. Experience in the production of multimedia — including the use of audio and video editing tools — is strongly desirable. For our more specialized multimedia positions, we expect to see an extensive knowledge of Flash and an understanding of how to integrate databases into multimedia presentations.
