Leading tween entertainment magazines Tiger Beat and BOP seek a talented, driven and highly organized professional for a full-time, entry-level editorial assistant position. You will be in control of running the office's day-to-day administrative duties (including phones, supplies, mail, contests). You will be responsible for light-to-moderate editorial content for the magazines — including interviewing celebrities, covering events and writing quizzes and columns. Pace is fast and deadlines are tight, so organization, self-motivation and the ability to multitask are musts. The ideal candidate will possess excellent verbal and written communication skills and a knack for engaging a 12-year-old, female audience — most importantly with funny, quirky, silly, clever and creative ideas. Some magazine experience or a degree in a journalism/communications-related field is preferred. Top candidates will be given a writing test.

Tell us why this is your dream job. Email your cover letter, resume and 3 writing samples (attachments, if possible) to: tigerbeat@laufermedia.com. Please send as attachments and not in the body of the email. No phone calls please.
