At the moment, all positions with Extant are done on a volunteer basis. This includes all of our writers and columnist. The goal of Extant’s publisher, David Showers, is to one day turn Extant into a full fledged self sustaining company where a full time staff can be hired, and of course, paid.
However, the overall goal is to provide a site to the Christian community where spiritual growth and conversations about everyday life can be discussed in a friendly and safe environment. We want to help “grow” the kingdom of God.
So, why would you want to work with Extant for free?
Well, hopefully you share our vision of growing the kingdom of God. In addition to that, some of our team are inspiring writers that are looking for more exposure and experience. Some are college students wanting to start building their resume’s while working with a rapidly growing online publication.
What ever your case or motivation may be, if you’re interested in being part of a new and exciting venture, we have some openings that might appeal to you. All we ask for is that you have a passion for your craft, love God, and consider yourself to be somewhat dependable. Please look at the positions listed below and if you find something of interest, please let us know and we can discuss things further.
Social Networking/Marketing Specialist
This position would be the outward facing host/hostess for Extant. You would represent Extant on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. To date we have done a fairly good job of growing our social networks, however we need assistance in growing our user/reader interaction and engagement to help build and maintain our site traffic.
Movie Review Writer
Do you have a passion for movies? We’re looking for a movie buff that likes to see all the latest movies and then tell all their friends about them. All you need is a passion for movies and writing. Of course the reviews would be written from a Christian perspective letting our readers know if the movies are family safe or for adults only and why.
This position is all about the music. Would you like to write about the newest music on the scene? How about getting chance to interview some of the biggest names in the Christian music world. Extant has relationships with some of the largest Christian music promoters and can get your foot in the door for interviews and free music to review. In addition to interviews and reviews, you would need to keep your ear to the ground and be on the lookout for news and press releases about the music scene.
