Opening in Magazines/Publishing
10 Missions Media, LLC is looking for a business-minded journalist with sharp reporting and writing skills to join our award-winning team producing two national magazines serving the automotive service and repair industry.
We are a youthful, progressive and growing business-to-business publishing company. Our publications are FenderBender, which serves roughly 50,000 owners and operators of collision repair facilities, and Ratchet+Wrench, which serves roughly 100,000 operators of mechanical auto repair shops. We tell inspirational, informative stories about the successes, struggles and strategic growth of auto repair facilities, with the aim of helping our readers grow their businesses.
Before you draw any conclusions, we do not produce stodgy, outdated shop magazines. Our publications are the most progressive in the industry, featuring fresh, modern designs and high-quality editorial content that blows away the competition.

• Experience in business journalism, including qualified internships at business publications
• A B.A. in journalism, English, business, or related field
