Common Sense Publications is among America's fastest growing small companies and we have a successful advertising campaign that we're marketing all over the internet.

We need help.

We're hiring managing editors, proofreaders, editorial assistants, and staff writers.

If you are interested, please review the following specific job descriptions and then follow the instructions at the bottom to start the application process.
In the interest of time and space, we could only present a thumbnail sketch of the type of freethinker we’re looking to hire.

Editorial Writer: We're looking for an amazing writer... scratch that—we won't settle for anything less than a world-class storyteller. Someone who knows how to keep readers turning the pages.
But here's the rub—this person also has a basic understanding of the financial markets. One part Hemingway, one part Warren Buffet (ok, not Warren Buffet, but it would help if the term “balance sheet” meant something to you). You'll inform your readers while entertaining them at the same time.

Editor: We have openings for ambitious, tireless, and fearless editors. What does it take to be a great editor? It starts with being a great writer. As such, you know how to reword a sentence or paragraph to make it flow more smoothly. You know that the right word choice can make all the difference. But it’s more than that.
You also recognize when an argument needs strengthening. You identify when an article doesn’t make sense logically. And you have the writing ability to fix it. You should have an incredible eye for detail and the ability to handle dozens of tasks at the same time without getting flustered or stressed. It's chaotic here, every day.

You must be assertive enough to stand up to a NYT-bestselling author and tell him how to improve his copy, yet humble enough to learn our style and fit in with out somewhat introverted writing culture…
You’ll proofread, research new ideas, or manage the process of launching new products and websites.

Editorial Coordinator: This entry-level position is a fantastic way to get your foot in the door of our rapidly-growing company. You’ll need a great attention to detail, organization, and a strong work ethic. If you have knowledge of HTML that’s a plus, but a willingness to learn is acceptable.

All our employees work from our office in Delray Beach, FL. Therefore, you must either a) live locally b) be prepared to move to the area.

HOW TO APPLY FOR ONE OF THESE POSITIONS:
If you want to apply for the job, please attach a cover letter and resume. In your cover letter tell us about yourself, what you are passionate about and how you can help us.

If you impress us with your cover letter, we'll email you with further instructions for a 15 minute video interview.
