You’ll work Sunday through Thursday, editing the briefings, and occasionally writing one. 


You’ll network with editors and reporters and attend daily news meetings to stay abreast of what’s coming down the pipeline. You’ll have a keen eye for what makes a story special, and a deft hand at helping our writers surface that for the reader. You’ll fit in with a working culture that adheres to high standards without losing collegiality.
