New York Times Is Seeking Copy Editors
Thu Jun 7, 2007 11:02 am (PST)
The New York Times has several openings for copy editors that it is
actively seeking to fill. Applicants should have three to five years experience on a copy or assigning desk of a major metropolitan newspaper or an equivalent news operation. Because copy editors at The Times exercise broad responsibilities and because The Times uses its copy desks as a primary recruiting ground for assigning and other supervising editors, the best-prepared applicants will have experience as an assigning or supervising editor. Web experience is a plus.
Salary and benefits are competitive with the nation's top newspapers. The Times offers a stable employment environment with many opportunities for rapid advancement. Several of the editors listed on the newspaper's masthead started on the paper's copy desk.
For more information or to apply, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Because of the volume of applications, we will reply only to those who are under serious consideration. The New York Times Company is an equal opportunity employer and
encourages minority candidates to apply.
