So we’ve (excitedly) hit that mark in our growth where I looked around and thought, “Holy crap, I need more hands on deck.” More hands to blog, brainstorm ideas, help on photo shoots, curate our Love List vendor directory, write/edit issue features … you get the idea.
That being said, I’m now on the hunt for a truly amazing editorial assistant. Starting out, it will be a part-time freelance opportunity for 10-15 hours a week, but as the company grows, so will the position with the right person. First and foremost, I’m looking for someone who is eager and wants to truly be a part of the Love Inc. team for the long haul — after all, you can’t teach passion. Secondly, they’ll have a recent college degree in their back pocket (ideally in a creative field such as journalism, communications, photography or design), an internship experience at a website or magazine, be fluent in social media and have a borderline obsession with weddings.
Primary responsibilities include but not limited to:
- Writing blog posts
- Editing issue features with the potential opportunity to write them
- Assisting with photo shoots (obtaining products and contributing on set)
- Social media management (namely Instagram and Pinterest)
- Assisting with growing and managing our vendor directory
Candidates must be based in New York City and available to work at least 10 hours a week. This freelance position pays $10/hour and starts immediately. To apply, send me a quick note via email ([email protected]) telling me about yourself along with your resume and any clips you may have or link to your personal blog to give us an idea of your writing style.
