NewsFactor Magazine has some pretty narrow (or is that snooty?) requirements for the editor job it posted on Mediabistro. You have to live in or near Woodland Hills, but don't even think about it if you went to the local university.
NewsFactor Magazine is a national newsstand magazine all about new technology for business and pleasure. It's a hot new title coming to newsstands this May, brought to you by one of the best-known publishers of online technology news....
To lead the editorial team, we are seeking a hands-on managing editor with amazing vision, as well as an incredible eye for detail. We need someone who TOTALLY GETS the 25- to 35-year-old target market.
Ideal candidates will have previous magazine experience, a degree from a top-notch journalism school (think USC or Medill, not Cal State Northridge) and be able to pass a copy-editing test with flying colors. If you've got connections to hire other great editors and freelance writers -- all the better.
Please note that we are only considering candidates who live in Woodland Hills or very nearby (within a 30-minute drive), to minimize the daily commute. Non-smokers only, please.
Pat Saperstein wonders, "how many graduates of top-notch journalism schools live very nearby Woodland Hills -- doesn't this kind of narrow the pool?"
