The copyediting fellow will primarily edit copy for our daily Facebook Watch show, "Business Insider Today," but also have opportunities to work on other shows and projects. This person will be responsible for editing copy on-screen for grammar, punctuation, spelling, sense, and Insider Inc. style. BI Today is a business-focused show, but that can include everything from news to food, celebrity to science, politics to sports, and all the rest.
We’re looking for someone meticulous who has a passion for grammar, punctuation, and spelling, and who can work quickly and independently. Attention to detail is necessary but so is speed and responsiveness.
- Professional experience copyediting, preferably for television or video (If you do not have experience copyediting, please do not apply.)
- Familiarity with AP style, content-management systems, social media, and instant messaging.
- Team player with a positive attitude, a sense of humor, and a good ear for language.
- Pass a two-part editing test, on page and on-screen.
This is a paid fellowship based in 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 as soon as possible.
