Job: Busted Coverage Assistant Editor (full-time)
Responsibilities: You’ll be a blogger.This isn’t a newspaper. You must be able to write, but I’m not looking for a Northwestern J-school grad who needs to dazzle me with big words. You’ll be blogging on a variety of subjects from Kate Upton stuffing her face at dinner with Justin Verlander to interviewing Ozzie Smith. You might write about an athlete’s wedding registry at 10 a.m. and interview a Playboy Playmate at noon. You might be blogging at 11:30 during Monday Night Football. If you’re lazy and get up at noon this won’t be a good fit.
Qualifications: Do you have a blog? That would help. Looking for a blogger who understands what that word means and how to work independently; should understand Busted Coverage style and recurring themes; must understand WordPress. We’re looking for someone who won’t need his/her hand held. Able to develop own story ideas. Opinionated. Internet writing experience would be nice. Must have a sense of humor without thinking you’re a comedian. I don’t give a shit if you have a college degree. Couldn’t care less.
Software skills: MUST UNDERSTAND WORDPRESS or be willing to teach yourself in a couple days
Relocation: Unless you live in NY/NJ, you’ll be working from home
Compensation: We’ll discuss that later
