[2:15 PM] MacSoldiers Seeks New Daily Editor

Our good friends at MacSoldiers are looking for a new daytime editor. Jon Bonner sent us a note detailing the requirements. According to MacSoldiers:

MacSoldiers is currently seeking a candidate to fill the position of Daily Editor. This position should - at this time - be considered volunteer based, however compensation may be negotiable in the future based on advertising revenues.

Candidates must posses strong HTML knowledge and have a good grasp on the English language. Candidates must also be willing to work on a daily basis five days per week. Time requirements depend largely on the amount of work involved per day - which varies - combined with the candidate's skill level. On average, four to six new columns will be published on MacSoldiers weekly.

The Daily Editor's responsibilities would include:

  1. Receive all new content submissions from MacSoldiers staff.
  2. Proof read submissions for accuracy. (For example, making sure a link is valid, checking for typos, and running a spell checker. Don't worry, we're not looking for a copy editor.)
  3. Publish new content on the web site within a 12-24 hour time frame using predefined HTML templates.
  4. Send out a press release regarding the new content.
  5. Contribute to the site with original work - at least one column or review per week on average.
  6. Contribute on the staff mailing list to help make editorial decisions, etc.
  7. Have fun and enjoy gaining valuable web site experience.

Anyone who is interested in this position should contact Jon Bonner.

Please include your resume and/or demonstrate your knowledge of the required abilities (examples of previous HTML work are preferred). References, if available, are also encouraged and welcome.

If you are interested in helping to run a Mac web site, let M. Bonner know. If you would like more information abut MacSoldiers, go and check it out!

The Mac Observer Spin: Judging from some of the mail we get from people who think they could do it better, there must be some interest out there! :-) [Editor's Note: We apologize for that last joke, but it seems we couldn't resist...]
