Industry Conference Online Reporter

Job Description:

We are seeking an erudite wordsmith to join our blogging team. Candidates must have a knack and love for business and financial news. Our financial publication is looking for a part-time reporter to cover industry conferences for its Web site. The Industry Conference Reporter will watch live or recently recorded presentations by C-level executives of publicly traded companies and report highlights from each presentation.

Each report will be a short (approx. 300 words), hard-news piece in the publication’s style, and will appear in the publication’s blog. These pieces will be linked internally to related articles on the website, and must include the appropriate metadata. It is vital that they be written quickly, proofread and be free of any factual errors.

Compensation is per article written. Each conference lasts one or two days, and provides the opportunity to write 20+ pieces.  No travel is necessary as all relevant materials can be accessed remotely.  Reports will be submitted electronically via e-mail, WordPress or Google documents.  Target compensation is from $280 to $500 per week depending on the number of posts written and conferences covered.

Please send resume, cover letter and writing samples. No phone calls please.
