DescriptionGreetings from THE LATEST (thelatest.com).
Heard the latest?
We are a soon-to-launch website called "THE LATEST." We have an international team that is continually growing.
As part of our offering, we will produce webisodes in which we discuss "the latest" in news, sports, gadgets, gossip, wine, fly fishing, comedy, viral videos, the weather, politics, music -- anything at all.
THELATEST.com is looking to expand its editorial team. As part of this team you will be working in close contact with the Video Production teams, social media and marketing team and off-site bloggers.
PLEASE NOTE: This idea is still in the early stages and we are pre-launch, pre-funding, pre-just about everything. We do have a demo site and we also have programmers programming. We hope to launch by January 2015.
ResponsibilitiesGo over resumes we've already received.
Match those up with topics we want to cover.
Figure out who our strongest contributors will be; determine what gaps remain to be filled.
Build an editorial team we can rely on once we go live (projected summer of 2014). We could use help between now and then, but if you can only come during the summer, that can still work.
RequirementsGreat passion for, and knowledge about, a topic.
Great writing and editing skills.
Social media skills a big plus.
If you are good with technology (smartphones, apps, uploading, downloading, etc.) that's another big plus.
We are in West LA. These particular internships must be done here, out of our office. A virtual internship wouldn't work for this assignment, but if you want to become part of our virtual blogging team, let us know.
Thanks for your interest.
