If you are a passionate journalist who writes for your local paper or have experience as a local journalist, you may be interested in becoming an Editor/Writer for Patch.com. At Patch, you become the editor and writer of your own page for the city you live in and cover news items specifically in that area, much like a local newspaper would. It is a full-time job and there are many benefits. This is more than a freelance writing job - it is a full-time job with a lot of responsibility.
Being an Editor at Patch.com
Patch.com is looking for people who have a degree in journalism and who also have experience. If you are accepted, some of the benefits are:
- Full-time salary
- They supply a laptop, smart phone, camera and police scanner
- Benefit package as well as a 401k plan
Right now Patch.com is hiring people in many states across the U.S. Here is the link of jobs at Patch. For more information about what they are looking for, and how to apply, click here.
Even if they are not looking for an Editor in your area and you are willing to relocate, you can apply and be placed in another area.
Patch is owned by AOL and sounds like an interesting opportunity for people who want to start their own online style of newspaper reporting. If you have the experience and are looking for a full-time job, this may be the right opportunity for you.
Would love to hear from Patch.com Editors and Writers to see what they think of this opportunity. Please feel free to share.
