Slate's Hiring

We're looking for an energetic newshound to write for the "Slatest."

Job description:Slate seeks a smart, quick journalist to revamp the "Slatest," its news aggregator. The job will be to write circa 15 items a day for Slate's news blog, keeping our readers abreast of breaking news throughout the day. Posts should be pithy, clear, and offer an insightful take on news as it breaks—like your smartest friend giving you a pointed and illuminating summary. Candidates should be sharp writers, voracious readers, and newshounds, preferably with a good understanding of SEO. The position is a full-time contract position without benefits. Working out of our New York City office is preferred, but Washington, D.C., would be considered.

We are looking to hire ASAP. Candidates should send résumés and brief cover letters to slatestjob@gmail.com by midnight Friday, March 4.
