Contract/Part Time/Flexible Hours

Posted: Aug. 2019

AllSides is seeking a Weekend News Curator. We’re looking for journalism, media, or political science students or professionals who understand the media landscape and have an eye for the biggest news stories of the day.

This is a remote position that would require roughly 2 to 3 hours of work each Saturday and Sunday. Hours are flexible, but generally, the work should be completed no later than 12 p.m. EST. Opportunities to assist with news posting on weekdays are also available.

Responsibilities:

  • Curate and post a minimum of 5 news stories each from Left, Center, and Right-leaning media outlets to the AllSides homepage on Saturdays and Sundays.
  • Identify the biggest news story of the day and curate diverse perspectives on it for the site's daily "headline roundup.” Write a brief description of the story and how different sides of the political aisle covered it.
  • Post the news stories to AllSides’ social media accounts (Facebook and Twitter).
  • Write succinct social media copy.

Qualifications:

  • You’re a journalism, media or marketing student or professional who has a keen understanding of and interest in the American media/political landscape, including the fact that many media outlets are biased toward liberal or conservative viewpoints.
  • You know how to identify an important news story.
  • You have access to a computer and an Internet connection and are comfortable working with proprietary, web-based content management systems.
  • You have experience with Facebook and Twitter.
