You like to work with others who might think differently than you, are open to new ideas and can change course as needs shift. You also must be comfortable working “undercover” by calling businesses as if you were a small business owner.

In addition to being able to write product/service reviews, we also need you to write shorter, less research heavy articles including news and features. Newspaper writing experience is a plus. Because you will be creating content across the B2B properties, you will need to be able to communicate and work with multiple site editors.

 

Responsibilities:

  • Conduct market research on products, software and/or services
  • Explain the features of a product or service and how they benefit the consumer
  • Write authoritative, credible content that is approachable and engaging as well as professional and impeccably well-researched

  • Ability to assimilate information from a wide variety of sources
  • Strong organizational, analytical, research and writing skills
  • Excellent grammar, punctuation and spelling
  • Ability to manage data and organize work
  • Attention to detail is critical
  • Demonstrated ability to produce quality content while managing multiple priorities and meeting aggressive deadlines
  • Ability to receive, absorb and act on critical feedback from copy editors, peers and supervisors
  • Proofreading – for self and peers
  • Aptitude for building effective working relationships and accomplishing tasks in a collaborative team environment
  • Adaptability toward ever-changing processes and approaches to reporting
  • Microsoft Office-basic formatting and organization in Excel and Word, understanding of Outlook

In addition to your resume, please write a brief (on or two paragraph) review of a product or service you like or use and submit in your cover letter.
