Job at Campus J

Our friends at CampusJ.com are looking for an associate editor. Here are the deets:

At CampusJ.com, we have two goals: providing comprehensive coverage of Jewish news on campus, as well as training and opportunities for the next generation of Jewish journalists.

Last semester, we had a staff or 26 beat reporters located at campuses across the United States and Canada, and we hope to significantly increase that number for the coming year. The associate editor position is an extremely rewarding one that gives you the opportunity to watch these students grow as writers and reporters, and turn them from aspiring journalists into professional journalists.

In an associate editor, we’re seeking an extremely strong writer and editor with at least 3-5 years’ professional journalism experience and an ability and willingness to learn — if not actual experience with — Web publishing. Applicants should be good teachers of the craft, and patient with young writers. Familiarity with Jewish life on campus is necessary.

To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, and relevant work samples to mail@campusj.com.
