HELP WANTED: WE WANT YOU!

Do you love horror movies and ARROW IN THE HEAD? Do you want to contribute to its growth? Do you have time to spare? Do you love dishing the scoops, researching news stories, scouring the Net for all things horror-related and writing about the latest and greatest to come? If so, you may just be the ideal candidate to help fortify the AITH HORROR NEWS SECTION so take a look at the requirements below and see if you're ready, able and wanting to join the JoBlo.com/Arrow in the Head team.

Position:
Horror News Editor

What it is exactly? You would be in charge of finding, writing and putting together horror news stories every day of the week-- pictures and all (basically, the same thing that our current news editors are doing for AITH). The person we hire for this gig would be asked to scour the Net for scoops and news, put them together in an entertaining and informative manner (natch) and provide for at least 3 stories a day. You must be available to post stories from Midnight to 6AM East Coast time and on all of the odd stories that pop up over the Weekends.
 

Do I need to be living in a certain area to get this job? Not at all. This job is open to anyone from any country, any city, any street, any gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse... ;) As long as you've got a solid connection to the Internet, email and can surf...you are a likely candidate.

How much does this job pay? Believe it or not, the gig actually pays some money! I say this because up until a while ago, we couldn't afford to pay anyone squat, but a quarterly "bonus" is now in the cards. Nothing that would make you quit your day job, of course, but some cool drinking allowance money. Oh, and you'll also get to display your writing skills to the world (close to 100,000 unique visitors/day), slap the gig on to your CV/resume, receive an extra cool new email address which ends in @joblo.com and plenty of groovy real-life Internet company work experience (read: handjobs).

What is required of this post?

  • You must be available to post stories from Midnight to 6AM Eastern Coast time and on Weekends which is the shift we need somebody for.

  • You must be serious about your application, the vacant position and be, at least, 21 years old.

  • You must be an excellent writer, bar-none. If you send us an email with spelling and grammatical errors, it will not be considered. Our kind of humor helps as well, but professionalism is most important.

  • You must LOVE, and I stress this word again....LOVE horror movies! (and appreciate the Arrow in the Head and JoBlo's "style")

  • You must have basic .html skills since they are required to enter the stories into our system. No elaborate skills, just the basics. Experience with graphic programs such as Photoshop, etc... is also appreciated.

  • You must be able to commit to this job for at least a period of 6-12 months and MUST be available to cover your part of the gig from Midnight to 6AM (very important).

  • An added bonus (but not required) would be anyone who already has an established set of "spies" or contacts in the industry and can provide our site with more exclusive content

How do I apply?

Send us an email at horror-editor@joblo.com titled HORROR NEWS EDITOR (The Arrow and JoBlo will be going through all of the applications together) and include in it:

1) WHY you think you would be ideally suited for this post (you gotta really sell us with shit to back it up as as well!) Try to concentrate on the above requirements.

2) Also, include your full name, age, resume (if you've got one), geographical location, status (are you single, married, have kids) as well as a few writing samples, preferably short news stories in the same vein as the rest of the articles on AITH.

3) Furthermore, if you've already worked on any other website, please provide us with the required URLs so that we could check those out as well.

Email us at: horror-editor@joblo.com
