I wrote this article late last year for Blu Ghana. I thought I had posted it on here, but just realized I hadn’t. The gist of it is that when I was 18 years old, someone took a chance on me and gave me an opportunity to learn, improve and explore, and that set the pace for many things to come. It’s been almost a decade since then and I’d like to offer the same. Alors, Circumspecte is hiring! The key prerequisite? Be willing to learn and be challenged.
I will share full details next week, but this is a heads up to watch this space. The final candidate will be Circumspecte’s representative in Ghana and will undergo intensive training. There will be a stipend, but I hope that the ‘compensation’ from this opportunity goes beyond monetary gains. This is not simply a “follow your deliverables” opportunity – I’m hoping it will be more of an apprenticeship or grooming. I will teach all I know and have learned about writing, editing, communications, branding, marketing, and related areas. You will have your work published with due credit given, you will also have the opportunity to embark on creative projects of your own design.
If you an avid reader, identify with what Circumspecte stands for, and especially if you believe yourself to be a writer, I encourage you to apply once the job posting is up. This is a learning opportunity so don’t worry about being the “best writer out there” – BTW, there’s no such thing – we’ll work on honing your skill together.
I encourage you to read the article and please feel free to peruse this website as well as my blog. Looking forward to this, it’ll be fun ;)
