Earlier this week, I asked Freelance Writing Jobs readers if they want to see some editing job listings on the site, and the answer was yes, yes, yes! Therefore, I’m sharing what looks like a good one. It’s a work from home position as a local Chicago editor for Yahoo!. I do think it’s a full-time position rather than freelance, but since it’s a telecommuting job, I thought many readers here at Freelance Writing Jobs might be interested. Feel free to skip it if it’s not for you.
The main job description says:
“Yahoo! is looking for an expert online editor to raise the level of our content served to the citizens of Chicago. The ideal candidate will be a seasoned editor with a passion for news, new media, and their local market. He or she will synthesize content from a number of sources and publishers into a relevant, addictive offering for residents. You should be flexible, quick-thinking, energetic, efficient, and able to work independently under pressure while maintaining attention to detail. Real-world journalistic experience managing digital news on deadline is a must.”
You can get all the details, skills requirements, and application instructions on the Yahoo! Careers site.
