Mediaplanet is seeking an editorial assistant to join our freelance team working on a long-term, but intermittent basis. Must be based out of the New York metro area and be able to work in-house during normal work hours. Suitable candidates will have a familiarity with writing original content, line editing for both print and digital platforms, and also be comfortable working at a very fast pace. 

The right candidate: 

  • Boasts 3 or more years of professional experience, ideally, working for an editorial website or magazine
  • Has a background in writing copy, line editing and proofreading for multiple platforms
  • Can package stories with a tone that is clever and conversational, yet highly informational and accurate
  • Is well-versed in a wide range of topics (health, business, technology, lifestyle, cause, etc..) and a wide range of voices (B2B vs. consumer)
  • Loves the thrill of a tight deadline; must be able to enforce deadlines and track the progress of several projects at once
  • Is an excellent writer with an understanding of how to write for brands (sponsored content)
  • Has experience in web publishing and can navigate a basic CMS with ease
  • Lives in New York and is available to commute to our office in the heart of Manhattan (this position is project based; each project is on average three full work days.)

To apply, please submit the following:

  • A resume 
  • A cover letter that explains why you are perfect for this position (Be creative! One-size-fits-all submissions won’t be considered.)
  • 3-5 links to examples of your online writing.
  • A link to your blog, website, or a social media handle. (LinkedIn and Google+ don’t count!)
