Oh My Blog: GOOD Seeks Motivated Staff Writers

If you have a your own WordPress, Tumblr or Blogger account and love to write out of sheer passion, GOOD needs you. The company is on the hunt for full-time staff writers to pump up the volume on its business, design, environment, food, cities, politics and technology coverage for print and online. Do you consider yourself an expert in one of these areas? Keep reading.

As a staff writer, you’ll be responsible for creating, aggregating and editing your content, which includes a potpourri of short items, straight links, slideshows, lists, original reporting, analysis and opinion pieces. You’ll be expected to publish 175-plus posts per month (that’s about 8-9 items per day, people), so you should be full of ideas, and be able to bring a consistent level of enthusiasm to work each day.

To be considered, you’ll need several years of reporting and writing in a breaking news environment for both print and the Web. You should be able to churn out impeccable copy quickly, understand GOOD’s mission and voice and have sound news judgment. A little social media know-how wouldn’t hurt either. Interested?
