The Observer Is Hiring an Editorial Assistant

We have an immediate opening for an editorial assistant. This is a full-time, entry-level position, perfect for a hyper-organized self-starter who can successfully juggle tasks ranging from crafting short blog posts to managing listings to monitoring the provisions in the newsroom beer fridge, all while working independently on long-term projects that keep this website functioning and robust.

Ideal candidates will have a college degree; excellent organizational and communication skills; a sense of humor; a deep well of patience; and some other attributes that make us think, Hey, we would maybe like to see you every day. Applicants should already live in or have ties to Dallas. This is a full-time job with benefits.

Interested? Send a resume, cover letter and a list of references to Joe Tone, editor, at joe.tone@dallasobserver.com with "Editorial Assistant" in the subject line. Not that interested but want to work with us in some other capacity? Check out our contributors guide.
