Project Description

We need a self-motivated candidate with strong Spanish language skills to create two weekly products. One is a weekly news roundup from digital online newspapers in Aguascalientes, Colima, and Nayarit states. The other product is a summary of social media trends in Aguascalientes, Colima, Jalisco, and Nayarit. For the news roundup, we have a list of online newspapers to consult, but would be happy to include other suggested news sources; for the social media trends summary, we have a list of pages to start with, but the job would definitely include doing social media analysis in this geographical area and the suggestion of other pages to follow. Both products will be no longer than three pages each (can be in Spanish or English), so synthesis, brevity, and prioritization will be key skills for whoever takes on this project. No formats exist, so designing an easy-to-read, eye-catching format will also be crucial.
