Are you a travel-industry guru with research and writing skills? Or maybe you’re a seasoned reporter who enjoys traveling as much as you enjoy writing about traveling.

Northstar Travel Group, the owner of Travel Weekly, is hiring two editor positions for the travel-industry publication — one freelance, contractor position and one full-time, senior-level position.

As a freelance editor, you will work on a four-month project that ranks top U.S. travel agencies by sales volume. The position is expected to last from late February to mid June. Applicants should have knowledge of the travel industry and AP style guidelines. The freelance editor should have no qualms with “following up aggressively” with executives and CEOs.

The senior editor position is full-time. Basic qualifications include five years of reporting or business-writing experience, a four-year degree and “close proximity to an international airport” for extensive travel.
