Requirements/Necessary Skills for Recruitment:
Do you obsessively follow the latest news in the African-American community on every website, blog and Twitter account? Are you constantly discussing the most pervasive issues affecting minorities and would love to be part of a team that both starts and continues conversations about the topics that black audiences care about most? Do you know HBCUs as well as the newest Kendrick Lamar track?
Then we've got the perfect fellowship for you! The Huffington Post Black Voices team is looking for a summer fellow to join our family. This isn't a get-coffee-and-make-copies kind of fellowship. The Black Voices fellow would be considered a full team member and would have an opportunity to contribute to the daily editorial operation, from producing content to sharing new ideas to interacting with our community via social networks. The perfect Black Voices fellow would be a self-starter and a go-getter who is fully immersed and knowledgeable about black media, and who isn't afraid to share fresh ideas and try new things.
This fellowship is located in our New York office, in the heart of Greenwich Village. Our fellowship usually lasts four to six months and is a paid program that we use to identify potential full-time hires — in other words, fellows are considered to be in training from the moment they begin. Our program ensures that you learn everything there is to know about how the Huffington Post approaches web publishing -- and helps you discover whether we're the sort of place that's right for you.
