QriousLife wants to interview you!

A little publicity plug for a non-writing (but still story-telling) project I’m working on. If you’re in Beijing, please read on!

Dear friends:

Do you have an awesome job and/or 留学 story to tell? If so, I would love to have you as a guest on my pilot talk show. The first trial episode aired live last Wednesday. You can watch it here: http://www.umiwi.com/zhuanji/172

The background
I’ve been invited to develop a program for Youmi/优米网 (www.umiwi.com), a dynamic young company started by the famous CCTV producer/presenter Wang Lifen. This online broadcasting platform currently specializes in programs featuring “bigwig entrepreneurs” like Jack Ma (Ma Yun), Feng Lun, Ren Zhiqiang and other celebrities. In the future, Youmi hopes to produce more lifestyle programming that their viewer groups can better relate to.

The program I’m creating is tentatively called “留学故事” and is focused around Chinese who have studied abroad or foreigners (who speak good Chinese) who have come here to study. While viewers may be interested in the “logistics” of studying abroad (TOEFL, visas etc), I would like to get them to ask the question, What kinds of interesting career decisions do people make after pursuing higher education? I hope to inspire viewers with stories of what education ultimately can do for you.

What we’re looking for

  • People with passion who love their jobs and have plenty to say about their education/career decisions.
  • People who speak Chinese well enough to handle an interview/conversation mostly in Chinese, but with some English thrown in.
  • People who are in Beijing who can come to Dawanglu to record their segments (we target to film near the end of the workday, around 6pm, but if you’re flexible to come in during daytime hours, that also works).
  • The pilot series will be pre-recorded (not live) so if the camera-shy among you need not worry!

If you’re interested, please send me a few bullet points about yourself

  • Where did you go to school in China and abroad?
  • What did you study?
  • What kinds of jobs have you held?

Thank you!
