Always be on the alert for potentially fraudulent job postings online - never send money to a potential employer.
DescriptionGreetings from THE LATEST (thelatest.com).
Heard the latest?
We are a new website called "THE LATEST."
We discuss "the latest" in news, sports, gadgets, gossip, wine, fly fishing, comedy, viral videos, the weather, politics, music -- anything at all. We offer text, photos, videos, expert opinion and social media commentary.
THELATEST.com is looking to expand its editorial team. As part of this team you will be working in close contact with fellow journalists/editors, the video production team, social media and marketing team and our off-site bloggers.
ResponsibilitiesInterview people, write stories on topics that are all about what's new and exciting.
If you like doing videos, you can help with that, including appearing on camera.
Train and coordinate with bloggers who understand topics you'll oversee.
Help us keep our data base fresh -- the right sources, keywords, stories, etc. NOTE: Some of this can seem fairly clerical, but it's important. Computers can't read your mind, you have to tell them what to do.
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.
The ability to analyze website traffic data and communicate findings to content creators.
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.
Interns love THE LATEST!
Thanks for your interest.
