USA TODAY’s Life team is looking for a digital content creator to fill a temporary opening with EntertainThis!, the section’s socially-focused entertainment blog.
Requirements include the ability to quickly turn around copy, good news judgment and an obsession with all things pop culture. An understanding and appreciation of topics that resonate with a mass market is a plus, as is a strong opinion on celebrity musings. A love of Beyonce is not mandatory, but a 500 word think-piece on why she is/isn’t overrated may be.
Job duties include monitoring trending topics via social media and search; writing succinct, snappy and accurate blog posts; and redistributing those posts through USA TODAY products and social platforms. Candidates should also be prepared to develop unique takes on the news of the day, and cultivate longer-term pitches for trend and consumer-friendly stories.
The position is full-time, and will run through mid-September. Ideal candidates will be based in Washington, D.C., but remote work is an option.
