Gawker is once again hiring Editorial Fellows for our New York office.
This position has been filled. Please watch Gawker.com for new hiring announcements.
Editorial Fellows are Gawker's entry level editorial positions. The ideal Editorial Fellow candidate is a strong writer with a discerning eye for newsworthy stories, has a keen sense of Gawker's voice, and will be able to work in the Gawker office four days a week.
- You should want to be a journalist, reporter, writer, or something of the sort when you grow up—prior experience in media is a plus. This is a position we hope will transition into something permanent at Gawker, so a desire to write for us is a must.
- Basic knowledge of Photoshop, FinalCut, and HTML.
- You are over 18 and have the legal ability to work in the United States
- Willingness to learn. We don't expect you to know everything when you get here, but you should be willing to put the work in to figure it out. While we'll never ask you to get us coffee, there is some basic administrative stuff—transcribing interviews and research assistance—that comes with the territory.
The stuff you'll be doing:
- Research and reporting: We are looking for a very strong writer who is capable of pulling together different kinds of information from multiple sources for editors
- Spotting stories: Learning how to find and pitch stories from multiple sources and leads
- Some video editing
Editorial Fellows are paid, hourly employees. And if you're really good (and lucky), one day you could be promoted to an Editorial Assistant.
