Job Description
Business Insider is hiring a paid editorial fellow to copyedit our content.

The Insider Fellowship Program is for early career journalists who want to spend six months learning from a newsroom full of passionate, dedicated journalists. Fellows are assigned to teams and become experts in digital storytelling. They produce real work that is distributed to our audience of millions, and by the end of six months are prepared for the next phase of their journalism careers. For more information on the Insider Fellowship Program, see here.

Fellows on our copydesk edit stories from both Business Insider and INSIDER for grammar, spelling, sense, and style. Attention to detail is necessary but so is speed.

We’re looking for someone with the following:
  • A passion for digital storytelling and voracious reading habits
  • Familiarity with digital and social media
  • Ability to work quickly and collaboratively with a fast-paced team
  • Some basic HTML and/or Photoshop experience
  • Previous experience copyediting for a newspaper or news website (please do not apply if you do not have any copyediting experience)
  • Some basic fact-checking experience
  • Familiarity with AP style
  • An interest in enforcing our style across story types and topics

This is an hourly paid fellowship based out of our New York office. Fellows are encouraged to work 40 hours a week, and fellowships run for six months. Start date for this position will be in March or June.

Created for the digital generation, Business Insider is the largest business news site in the US and one of the fastest-growing news brands in the world. We embrace the themes of positive change and innovation and use fast, fun, and informative storytelling to cover the business, tech, and finance news stories you need to know to work, play and live better.

APPLY HERE with a resume and cover letter telling us why you want to be our copyediting fellow. Indicate whether you would be able to start in March or in June. Application is due March 1.
