Babble Seeks Editor for New Dad Channel

Good news, job seekers. Babble is expanding its family and launching a new Dad channel, but it needs an editor to lead the charge. To start, the gig will be remote, and will only require about 10 hours per week, but if all goes well, you could be looking at a full-time job in no time.

In less than five years, Babble has grown into an award winning online destination, and ranked among Time magazine’s Top 50 sites of 2010. “We’re probably the only parenting site that even attempts to do any real journalism, that actually publishes great writers and writes about people’s personal experiences [and] covers the news,” founder Rufus Griscom said in an interview with Mediabistro.

If you land this editor position, that’s exactly what you’ll be a part of — that is, if you have the experience, contacts and management skills to back yourself up. Those who think they have what it takes can apply here.

You Could Be as Happy as These Weight Watchers Employees Are

Weight Watchers is one of the top diet programs in the country, and it looks like the company is keeping their employees mighty happy. But when you’re talking about an organization “that literally changes people’s lives, including your own,” that’s to be expected.

According to its website, a financial analyst for the company commends its “collaborative environment,” while another employee enjoys Weigh Watchers’ global perks. “By being part of an international brand, I get to work with people all over the world, from the creative department in the U.S. to the content department in China,” a program development manager says.

Of course, the company website isn’t going to highlight negative comments about its workplace, but if you put your faith in these employees, you could be looking at a pretty rewarding career. Check out all of Weight Watchers’ media-related openings here.

Have a Heart? Get Paid to Be a Do-Gooder

You have a big heart and want to help the world, but you have to put a roof over your head, too. You can volunteer in your spare time, but you could also go the extra mile and devote your career to a do-good organization.

Chances are you have great skills that can be applied to numerous non-profits and groups that are working toward a positive goal. For instance, if you’re an animal-loving online marketing whiz, you could snag a senior manager position at ASPCA. Communications experts could find a new home at the Food Bank For New York City, which is currently hiring at the manager level.

These are just two examples. It’s important to realize that non-profits need to be staffed just as any other company. If you’re drawn to a specific outfit, head to its website and look to see if it has a careers section. Many list their available openings right on their sites. If not, you can always send an inquiry to someone under the “Contact Us” tab, or just give the organization a call. We’re sure they’ll be happy to hear from you.
