Project Description

Looking for the right candidate to help us on our web content side. This job may be light editing/posting or potentially writing as well.
Currently, we maintain a news website in a niche category that is updated 7 days a week, multiple times a day. We are the market leader.
Two editors maintain and run the website, but we are looking for additional help.

The right candidate would be responsible for (potentially) the following things:
• Posting things we send to you, with photos, provided to Joomla platform and following our style guide for posting. (this item is relatively minor)
• Editing press releases into web updates (taking out adjectives, meaningless paragraphs, urls, etc).
• Formulating own stories (potentially) from leads we find on the internet.
• Generally available during the day (US time) and occasionally on weekends for breaking news.

• Internet savvy – able to resize photos, add line breaks, fix formatting. Light HTML knowledge is preferred.
• Writing skills – must have very good writing skills/reading comprehension/able to proof read yourself.
• Research ability – using Google and the internet to track down more information, etc.
