CBS Seeking 'Irreverent,' 'Hip' Journalist for Eco-Beat (No Knowledge Required)
CBS is getting desperate.
âCBS is expanding its coverage of the environment,â the ad reads. âWe seek a talented reporter/host for Internet video broadcast. We are looking for smart, creative, hard working up and comers, who can bring great energy, creativity and a dash of humor to our coverage. A deep interest in the environment and sustainability issues will serve you well.â
So you would think such a job would require a science background or years of covering environmental news? Not exactly.
âYou are wicked smart, funny, irreverent and hip, oozing enthusiasm and creative energy,â the ad reads. âThis position requires strong people, reporting, story telling and writing skills. Managing tight deadlines should be second nature. Knowledge of the enviro beat is a big plus, but not a requirement.â
Ironically, the ad shows irreverence to what kind of carbon footprint the job duties might require. The ad includes: âBe prepared to see America. Heavy domestic travel.â
That would continue CBSâs efforts across the country. In September, CBSâs âThe Early Showâ showed viewers how one Florida family went to extraordinary lengths with high costs to lower their carbon footprint.
