Sample sale season is underway, and we're looking for one dedicated reporter to man a good portion of our extensive coverage, and one listings editor to maintain our dealfeeds. Do you obsess over sales like it's your job? Well, for the months of November and December, maybe it could be.
Sample Sale Reporter:
We're looking for someone to cover a minimum of three sample sales a week in November and December. Responsibilities would include attending the sale on opening day and occasionally lineblogging, writing up a detailed, full report, checking in on markdowns throughout the week and updating the original post when necessary, and staying engaged in the comments section to answer reader questions.
The ideal candidate would have a very flexible schedule and open availability in the mornings. You should be extremely knowledgeable about New York City's sample sale culture, be able to tell the difference between a good sale and a bad one, and not be intimidated by lines like this. This is a part-time position paying a flat monthly rate. If you think you're right for the job, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us a little bit about yourself.
