The journalist of the future: must want to stay at home

Kristine Lowe kindly translates this Norwegian job advert (with the proviso that it’s a quick translation) for us on her blog:

“Are you dreaming of travelling? Do you want to write long feature stories? Do you enjoy writing comprehensive profile interviews? Are you interested in writing about international politics? Do you think printed newspapers are more exciting than the web? Then you don’t need to apply for a job at Varden.

We are looking for a competent journalist for our newly created central news hub. You have to understand what readers are interested in; have good journalistic instincts and comprehensive local knowledge. High speed, a good attitude and an understanding of new media is a must.”
