FBLA was appalled when we found this ad:
Busy Production Company is looking to fill two segment producer positions immediately for one-hour High Definition National TV Special on World Poverty hosted by Bryant Gumbel. Must be able to do everything – research, field produce, write, story edit etc. Experience in Reality TV and/or with Celebrities and High Profile Public Figures (Politicians etc.) a plus.
Translation: Please be literate, as we’re clearly not.
Position(s) start Monday and go for three and a half months with a non-paid week off at Christmas. Possibilities for future employment abound. (We are BUSY!)
Translation: We are CHEAP!
Interested go-getters should send cover letter, writing samples and resume NOW for consideration. No Reels please and NO PHONE CALLS! $1000/week Non-Negotiable
Translation: We under-bid this gig, so prepare to suffer.
FBLA reminds all UPMs that you get what you pay for. Do you really want those politicians and celebrities to be handled by the lowest bidder?
