Required Experience:-

*You should be an avid reader. If you are the one who loves to read storefront names, signal signage, bumper stickers and much more while driving or sitting next to driver, then you might fit the bill. *Additionally, we will ask you few questions in interview like: What's your fav youtube video, what's your fav book, fav website etc. Be prepared.
*You should be tech savvy. We don't want you to code websites, but you should definitely know about latest smart phones, using MS Office, and latest apps out there. Knowing few tricks about using wordpress sites, html etc is not necessary but good to have skills.
*Flair for writing is added advantage.
*Fluid intelligence. What the heck is this! Check it out on wikipedia. If you don't have it, make sure you prepare well for interview. If you can clear the interview means you got it!
*You got to be attention to detail person. No mess ups while writing emails. Please double check your emails, reports before submissions. If you do it, you are in!
*Result oriented. Creativity and ideas are awesome, but what gets us all paid is: Results. So bottom line should be, whatever you do, should either take you a step closer to the expected result or atleast should be a mistake enough to generate enough learning experience.
