  1. TechSpot currently has open positions on its editorial staff, and we are hoping these can be filled by people from our same community. Positions available are as follows:

    1) Part-time news editor
    1-2 positions available depending on the applications we receive.
    You will work along with Derek and Justin on the frontpage news. You will be required to research news items and write coverage for TechSpot. Several samples of such work can be seen on the frontpage, we are expecting similar quality, quantity (avg = 125 words per post), and style of posting. This position requires ~2-3 hours of work, 3-5 days a week. We don't require you work all 2-3 hours straight, but preferrably during 7am-7pm Eastern Time.

    2) Contributing editor
    This position is exclusively being offered for taking care of TechSpot's Buying Guides (unfortunately Rick who used to work on them has been off for quite a while, again). You will be required research on your own for content for the guides, you will also receive assistance from the staff. You can find samples of such work here. This position does not require daily work however we are expecting at least one guide update per month. This may take anything from 5 to 10 hours per month.

    Important
    * We are looking for people who are passionate about technology. Being a TS community member is a big plus but not a requirement.

    * Both positions are paid, however don't expect to get rich out of it. The news editor position will be paid as a part time job, while the contributing editor, on a per article basis (you must commit to delivery every month however).

    * English skills are a must, of course. If possible, we'd like to see a sample of your work; ideally, something technology related.

    Still interested? We want to hear who you are (name, forum username) and what your experience is. Please send all your applications to my email with the subject "TechSpot Hiring!" for more information.

    Thanks and good luck!
