This isn't a sports job, but it's legit ... (DC)

    Cheers .. Longtime member here, but posting on an alias. I know this is a SJ site, but there are lot of people looking at exit strategies from so-called "traditional" journalism and a lot of us don't even work in a newsroom (Hi YF!).

    My office has a new opening. We're a website that focuses on foreign political, economic and government news with a strong emphasis on European items. The workload is extremely managable -- you'll edit 8-10 features per week. The workweek is 40 hours, 9-to-5, and vacation time is generous. The company is very family-friendly; when your child is too sick to go to school, you simply work from home rather than burning a vacation or sick day. Good healthcare, stock, a 401k and annual raises.

    An experienced editor will make in the mid-$60s with us; someone with 2-5 years experience can expect mid-$50s. The work is in suburban DC.

    If you want more, contact me by PM with your info and a link to a resume and I'll share the details.

    I know DC is expensive, but, good heavens, sounds too good to be true. Sure you won't have any shortage of qualified candidates.

    It's intriguing work, but definitely not what I thought I would be doing even five years ago. I like it enough that I'll retire here one day, God willing.

    I should mention that all the editing and communication with the writers is done in English. It would be great if you had some foreign language experience but its not needed. I muddle along in English quite nicely.

    Well, kiddo, you fail on reading comprehension, which I'd assume would be a big part of the job itself.

    KJIM beat me to it.

    An update, and score one for the good guys. The successful candidate found the job on SportsJournalists.com and I believe is a member of the site. Thanks to all who applied!
