earth-1149733_1280

Are you a motivated, committed, detail-oriented person who can work independently? Want to use your love of Korean popular music for something important? Then it’s your lucky day! The 2016 KPK Global Recruitment is open!

Fostering a fun and engaging environment, KPK is the oldest aca-fansite and only community of scholars who work together to curate information about modern Korean popular music (K-pop) and offers the opportunity for student research assistants to learn how to do the same.

As research assistants, students create discographies and videographies for mini-profiles on K-pop artists using Google Slides and YouTube playlists. Using these digital tools, they develop information literacy skills, particularly the ability to locate and verify information. As members of a community of practice, they also receive valuable e-mentorship from experienced scholars and get to participate in scholarly discussions about K-pop in a supportive environment.

Applicants must have some knowledge of K-pop and should be able to write well in English. All positions are voluntary (non-paid).   All successful applicants undergo a one-month training and probationary period. Subsequent appointments are three months and may be renewed.

KPK now recruits once a year, so this will be your ONLY opportunity to submit an application this year. 2016 RECRUITMENT ENDS JULY 15, 2016.
