New Voices — the only national magazine written by and for Jewish college students — is looking to hire a recent college graduate for the full-time position of editor-in-chief.

Published since 1991 by the independent, nonprofit Jewish Student Press Service, New Voices provides a vital online forum for student writers across the country — and around the world — to engage with Jewish issues on their own terms and speak to a national audience of their peers.

The next editor-in-chief of New Voices has the opportunity to shape an editorial vision for a national online magazine. This job is a unique and valuable experience for a recent college grad who is passionate about journalism and the Jewish community. New Voices and the Jewish Student Press Service have launched the careers of countless journalists and media-makers.

The position traditionally has been filled by a recent college graduate. The editor-in-chief can work remotely but must be available to commute monthly to our New York City office. The position begins in July, 2020, and ends in July, 2022.

Requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent
  • Excellent writing and editing skills
  • Strong interest in Jewish and campus issues
  • Extremely self-motivated
  • Some journalism experience preferred
  • Fundraising experience is also a plus

Job Description:

The editor-in-chief determines the overall editorial direction of the magazine. Working with a team of volunteer student writers and editors from across the country, the editor-in-chief generates high-quality content for newvoices.org exploring Jewish issues from a student perspective.

The editor-in-chief will also engage with the magazine’s funders and work to expand the magazine’s audience. The editor-in-chief answers to a volunteer board of directors composed largely of former New Voices editors who provide guidance and support.

To apply:

Send all of the following as attachments or web links to editor@newvoices.org

  • Cover letter explaining your interest in the position
  • Résumé
  • Two writing samples (ideally at least one should be an example of journalistic writing)

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
