Jobsfinderplus is hiring short-form writers with a passion for nature, food, sports, business or technology. This is a remote-work position; applicants need not live in New York City.
The ideal applicant will be comfortable writing short, accurate news items in rhythm with the pace of the social web. We are looking for writers who can help us add perspective to news as it happens. How does a news event help paint the larger picture of a trend or an evolving philosophy? What does it mean when one company acquires another? What has happened in the past that can help explain what is happening now? We're looking for writers who can do more than just rehash the news from other websites--writers who are not only great curators, but know how to get on the phone with sources and learn more about a story firsthand, as well.
Think you might apply? You should:
Be able to provide us with links to your past work
Be able to provide us with at least one professional references who can speak to the quality of your work as a write or provide some work samples.
Have a proven track record of using your social media accounts to find, improve, and distribute your stories
Have a strong interest in either nature, food, sports, business or technology news
Be committed to accuracy in your reporting
Feel comfortable working in a fast-paced environment, where you will be expected to meet short deadlines
Enjoy working both independently and with others as a team
Be a nice person. Our work environment--both in the office and in our virtual workspaces--is pretty friendly and cooperative
