Torque (Singapore) - - CONTENTS -

IVAN TAN  Based on the ar­ti­cles I have read from Torque, be it news sto­ries or car re­views, most of the writ­ings are a bit of the “6am news” with more of the “Larry King news”. From my point of view, it means that the sub­stance of these ar­ti­cles gets more peo­ple talk­ing about the past, present and fu­ture of the car in­dus­try. Since young, I have been in­ter­ested in mo­tor­sports and cars. I look for­ward to the changes each and ev­ery year in the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try.

Last but not least, I have re­cently got­ten my driv­ing li­cence. I’m qual­i­fied as a pro­ba­tion­ary driver un­til De­cem­ber 2018. I would like to take this year as an op­por­tu­nity to learn the role of a mo­tor­ing jour­nal­ist – han­dling dif­fer­ent tasks and li­ais­ing with the mar­ket­ing/PR de­part­ments of the car show­rooms if needed. Could the Torque ed­i­to­rial team add my name to your list of po­ten­tial job can­di­dates? A copy of my re­sume is at­tached.

Torque Thanks for ex­press­ing your in­ter­est to be­come a mo­tor­ing writer with us. How­ever, our ed­i­to­rial en­gine room is fully oc­cu­pied by a V12-strong team, made up of three staffers and nine core con­trib­u­tors. So there is no po­si­tion (or rea­son) for an­other writer to join the Torque team, whether part-time or full-time.

In any case, Ivan, if you wish to find out more about Sin­ga­pore’s mo­tor­ing me­dia in­dus­try, you can con­tact our edi­tor David Ting (davidt@sph.com.sg) and ar­range for a chat over cof­fee when you come to our SPH News Cen­tre of­fice to col­lect your Post­box prize.
