• PowerPoint and deck writing abilities REQUIRED

The grammatical mistakes alone are an eyesore (if you’re going to ask for deck-writing abilities, you’ve gotta learn to hyphenate, not hyphenhate!). But what’s really depressing is that MTV is asking for 5 years of work experience, and yet still providing freelance pay, with presumably no benefits. Don’t they have enough money these days to at least throw in some 401k/dental for their overqualified full-time staffers? Or is all the money going to Damien Fahey’s cowlick-upkeep fund?
