Successful Vacation Work Candidates to Undergo Practical Assessments

by | Nov 22, 2019

Earlier this month, gsport had received exceptional proposals from students keen to work as Vacation Reporters during the December 2019 to January 2020 festive period and from the pool of candidates, 10 have been selected to undergo practical assessments in the second phase of the process.

The successful candidates who boast impressive applications will be taken through a practical assessment to test the skills that they had listed and will be given the platform to showcase their talents as well as their passion for South African women’s sport.

How Will the Practical Tests Be Set Out?

According to the candidates’ natural strengths and interests, gsport will be setting out different tasks to each student on various sporting codes.

The students will be required to complete a feature story, explain and provide a detailed report with relevant questions on how they would approach an interview process with a female South African athlete of their choice, as well as how they would plan and execute social media content to drive articles that have been published on the website to gsport’s social media platforms.

After going through the practical tests, the gsport team will thoroughly check the content provided by the students and will then decide on four ladies who will be chosen to be gsport’s Vacation Reporters.

The Vacation Reporters will work closely with Celine Abrahams who manages gsport’s editorial strategy and implementation.
