Staff Writer - Poets&

We're looking for a smart, thoughtful and productive reporter and writer for our five higher education websites that largely cover the business and law field. We're a small, dedicated and passionate team of ten full-timers led by the former Executive Editor of Businessweek magazine and the former Editor-in-Chief of Fast Company magazine.

Unlike most new media jobs, we encourage long-form journalism that dives deep into a substantive subject related to graduate business education. That's a wide range of areas to explore from the impact of technology on education, to student loan burdens, admission consultants, startups out of schools, profiles of fascinating professors and students, etc.

We are looking for a person who is a self-starter who can generate strong ideas, has solid reporting skills and can write stories on deadline with minimal editing support.


At least two to three years of reporting and writing experience on deadline, with a variety of news, features, and series.

How To Apply:

Submit a resume, cover letter and a half dozen clips or links to online stories.
