Warning for English journos- Avoid Middle East Affairs
This is for any English speaker, editor and writer seeking a job in journalism.
If you see a job posting for Middle East Affairs- avoid.
Recently took a position with Middle East Affairs, an online newsroom - which at first seemed like a professional legit company... until it didn't. Manager told me my position was disappearing and moving to Barcelona with a week's notice, insulted me (called me crazy) for asking if (when) I was getting paid. As the funding is coming from unknown whereabouts in the Middle East, pay was under the table.
Do yourself a favor and don't bother applying.
