This job requires someone to extract and categorize information about the different news sections* on various news websites (see example site here: [url removed, login to view]). A list of 100 news sections has been compiled that includes Titles and URLs. Each news section is being converted into a news feed so we need to create additional descriptive information for each of the feeds.
For each of the different news sections we need to add a Subtitle, Keywords and Categories.
• Subtitle - Create a subtitle to describe the news section in more detail.
• Keyword - Create keywords that describe or are related to the news section content.
• Categories - Select the relevant categories that are associated with the news section to help organize the content in a directory.
* The phrase "News Section" is used to mean a news topic like sports, opinion, or business news and, sometimes the word is also used to mean an individual URL ([url removed, login to view]). Keep in mind that each section has its own URL.
A web application will be used (see attached screenshot) to input the additional information. Various utilities have been created to make developing and entering this information easier. For instance, you can review similar news sections from other news websites that were previously entered into the application. This allows you to repeat the same entries for the different fields with only minor changes. The application also provides a Keyword Search tool to make it easier to think of new keywords. Entering category data is also simplified with a Category Selector tool. Detailed directions are also provided for each data field in an online manual.
A person bidding on this job must be thorough, as that is a key aspect of accomplishing this task. It is very important to create accurate and complete data entries. This job requires someone that can quickly grasp the subject matter and then summarize and categorize the information efficiently. This is not a very difficult job, but it does take someone who is familiar with U.S. news topics. Candidates for this project should be able to follow instructions but also be able to think on their own (we don't want to be emailed every 5 minutes with a question). Be prepared to use your creativity, intelligence and best judgment in making your decisions.
If you are accepted for this job, you will be asked to first complete the required data entries for just 5 news sections and then check back with us so that we can confirm that all instructions are clearly understood before proceeding. We have dozens of websites that we need to do this same work for, the goal in offering this job is to find qualified candidates that do a good job so that we can then engage them for the rest of projects. Time frame for completing the job is 1 week from today. see attached documents for additional details on the project.
