New York Observer’s New NYO Magazine Wants a Managing Editor with Zero Experience

Trying to break into the media job market? It’s not easy. If you’ve just graduated, it seems like those cushy managing editor-type jobs are years and years away, only available after slogging through unpaid internships, endless freelancing, and mountains of aggregation. But actually! New York Observer‘s as yet unlaunched NYO Magazine, we learn from Business Insider, has posted a want ad for a managing editor which requires ZERO experience. But you have to accept a $30,000 dollars a year salary to, well, build and run an entire magazine. Hmm.

This is what you’ll have to do:

“The Managing Editor will be primarily responsible for Observer Media Group’s newest editorial product, NYO Magazine, but will also oversee various other publications and sections including Observer Philanthropy, The Educated Observer, real estate magazines and travel magazines… [You will] manage a crew of five interns… New graduates are encouraged to apply…”

Business Insider says this “sounds like a situation set up to fail,” and we can’t say we totally disagree. But we’d be impressed by any recent graduate who had the self-confidence to think that they can run a new magazine on almost no experience, and control an unruly crew of 5 interns on top of that. Takes some nerve. Click through to Business Insider if you’re interested in accessing the listing.
