Help Entrepreneurs Write for Major Publications With This Editor Job

AP style nerds and grammarians, it’s your time to shine. Knowing the difference between essential and non-essential clauses is about to pay off.

The Community Company is hiring a full-time associate editor to help business owners and C-level entrepreneurs publish articles in big-ticket publications like Time, Inc., The Wall Street Journal and several others. You’ll work with a diverse set of clients at varying writing levels, so patience and the ability to provide good feedback over several rounds of edits is essential.

This position is offered at the company’s headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts, or remotely. Preference will be given toward applicants in the Eastern time zone (though it is negotiable).

The application requires a cover letter that answers these three questions:

  • Why do you want to work for The Community Company?
  • Why are you a perfect fit for the job?
  • Why are you passionate about editing?

Be sure to include your resume and relevant writing clips as well.

Candidates should have at least one year of experience in business journalism or copywriting. Qualified applicants will be asked to complete a one-hour editing test on AP-style grammar, so dust off that style book!
