For Job Candidates
Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email
Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Thank-you cards and emails definitely make a difference. It’s an easy way for a candidate to stand out.
Things That Impress You In A Candidate: We want people who love this work and are going to come in ready to hit the ground running. There is no question that CCTV’s culture is rooted in employees’ passion for the news, the desire to tell the story, and the love of international news. That type of energy and excitement is a must. It’s an interesting combination: You need to be self-directed and know how to solve a problem on your own. But you must be excited about the opportunity to work with others and understand that you’ll become better by bouncing ideas off of colleagues. You can’t have an ego in a collaborative environment such as this. If you have too much pride of ownership of an idea, this is going to be a difficult place for you to work.
Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: It’s important that the person have an understanding of our programming, our mission around original content and our digital properties. Anyone working here needs to have a strong understanding of what’s making news. Above all, we look for flexibility.
Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: I’d love to say that we consider all candidates, but the reality is that we have to make sure international candidates can qualify for a work visa. First and foremost, all applicants must possess a college degree. Second, they must have at least five years of post-graduate work experience. Third, candidates must be willing to relocate to Beijing for a minimum of 12 months.
