INTERESTED? Here’s how to apply:

2. Submit your Resume w/ Picture and mobile phone number in Microsoft Word 2003 Document format
3. Append to your resume a page answering in a bit of detail these questions:
- What is your primary computer and internet access? Owned? Shared?
- Can you do image editing? If so, on the scale of 10, how do you rate your skills.
- What keeps you busy on a regular basis? Work? School?
4. As a test to your creative writing and research skills, write an article (max one page) with the following scenario/instructions/idea.

Setup:
You have a website about Davao City at the URL DAVAO.com (example only). The website is aimed at attracting tourists to the City. While it contains some vital information about Davao City, its government, economy, history etc, it does however focus and feature the different tourist attractions of the City such as its natural riches such as beaches, wild life, and others. It also has some guides, tips, recommendations and such at the visitor’s disposal.

Task:
Write a short article, that sums up the website as described above. Being a tourism driven website your article must be creative and alluring.

This article is not about promoting the website, it’s all about promoting Davao City, backed up by the collection of information presented throughout the website.

Your readers will be potential guests from different countries all over the world. Your article must have enough details to give a good idea of Davao, but must not be too long that’d bore the readers.

Attached an image (any image, from internet, your own, edited or untouched, anything) that would go nicely with your article. Put it in the header, or inline with your article.

Lastly, time yourself, and log at the bottom of your article how long it took you to do this – from concept, to research, to actual writing, checking etc. (speed is not the point of this question). Feel free to add remarks about your work, your time, etc.
