Description

Greetings 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.

Responsibilities

Interview 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.

Requirements

Great 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. Having some face-to-face communication on a weekly basis is good, especially if you would like to help keep this organized. But much of this can be done from school or home. A virtual internship could work if you just want to write about a topic.

Interns love THE LATEST!

Thanks for your interest.

Required - Article Writing, AP style writing, AP Style, Social Media Blogging, Video Editing
