How To Screen A Potential Creator

Part 1: Start the screening process


At the beginning of the call, introduce Odyssey’s mission for democratizing content creation and what our vision is for our platform.


Tell them Odyssey is one of the fastest growing social properties in the world, and our thousands of Creators are a diverse array of millennial influencers and respected leaders across the U.S. They are writers, photographers and videographers who believe they have stories worth telling that aren’t otherwise being told by traditional media. They hold various leadership positions in their communities and have social followings that they bring to our platform to drive conversations.

Describe what an Odyssey community looks like:

In an Odyssey community, content Creators contribute at least one piece of content per week by a deadline— typically Fridays. After a piece is submitted, the local Editor-in-Chief of the community edits it, followed by a Managing Editor in Odyssey’s New York City headquarters edits the content and posts it on our site on Mondays or Tuesdays.



Part 2: Ask Culture Questions

  1. What do you think an Odyssey Creator looks like? What are some qualities a Creator should have?
  2. If you were to talk about our platform online, how would you describe Odyssey?
  3. As a member of an Odyssey community in your area, what types of stories would you want to share on our platform?
  4. What questions do you have for me?

* If the Creator is interested in video content, ask these additional questions:

  1. Have you produced video in the past? If so, how and where?
  2. What type of video content would you be interested in creating?
  3. Are you interested in the Video Producer position? Would you like to hear more about it?

Part 3: Onboarding

After the call, determine if there is a fit. If approved, accept their invite in the system. New Creators will receive an automated welcome email with a link to complete their account. Make sure you follow up with the Creator to ensure he/she has done this!

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.

If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month.

For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
