Business Insider editorial fellow, markets and investing
Editorial | New York, NY | Internship
Business Insider is hiring a paid editorial fellow to write about markets and investing.
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 markets and investing team write about topics like the stock market and the global economy in the unique Business Insider style. They spend their time doing meaningful work: researching, writing, pitching and producing features — even breaking news if the timing is right. They have the opportunity to contribute to stories like this story about the 49 charts all investors should know and this exclusive interview with one of the investing field’s biggest names.
All our editorial fellows should have:
Experience reporting and writing (school publications are great)
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
Light HTML and/or Photoshop experience
Proofreading and copyediting skills
Additionally, for the markets and investing team, we’re looking for someone with the following:
Comfort talking markets with the biggest and smartest names in the business
An understanding of the levers that drive markets, and how they fit together
The ability to pick the most important nuggets of data out of research reports
The ability to distill complex topics into straightforward copy any reader can understand
An eagerness to become a student of markets and investing
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 June.
