Xconomy to Tech Journalists: Help Us Take an Even Bigger Bite Out of the Big Apple
It’s been less than a month since we launched Xconomy New York, and (to none of our surprise, really) we’re already finding there are more important innovation stories than even Arlene Weintraub, the intrepid editor of Xconomy New York, can tell on her own. So to all you reporters pounding the pavement in NYC’s tech and startup scene, here’s a nice opportunity for a steady (and substantial) freelance gig with one of the fastest growing biz/tech news networks in town.
We’ve said it before but it bears repeating: The ideal candidate will be a resourceful reporter, fearless interviewer, and swift writer with blogging and business news experience and the chops to produce breaking news stories and longer features and profiles on a daily schedule. The ability to work independently (but in close coordination with a world-class team) is key, a sense of humor is nonnegotiable, and experience with Web publishing tools and social media… Well, who doesn’t have that at this point?
If this sounds like you, write us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us what you’ve done, what you know about the New York innovation scene, and why you think you’d be a great fit with Xconomy. And don’t forget a resume and clips.
