This Online News Site Will Pay You to Summarize the Day’s News





Writers and news junkies rejoice: If you’ve been looking for remote writing jobs, this is an opportunity you won’t want to pass up.

Newser, a news curation website, is hiring a full-time editor with a knack for writing news round ups covering everything from President Donald Trump to weird crimes to — currently on the front page — an obituary for the wildly famous feline Keyboard Cat.

The full-time position includes four shifts during a 32-hour work week during which you’d be responsible for churning out 250-word stories.

One word of warning: The application requires you to turn in two of your own 250-word summaries of a couple news articles, so there is some time investment to the hiring process.

We left a message with Newser CEO Patrick Spain for word on the pay and specific job responsibilities, and we’ll edit the post as soon as we hear back.

If writing about current affairs gives you anxiety (like it probably does for so, so many of us), don’t forget to check out our Jobs page on Facebook. We post new opportunities there all the time.
