Consumerist Is Hiring In D.C.!

A short while back, we mentioned that Consumerist was looking for a freelance writer based in the Washington, D.C., area. We’ve subsequently put some more thought into that position and realized it should be a full-time staff job (one that is not subject to federal sequesters and furloughs). So if you’re based in or around D.C. and want to be an integral part of the Consumerist team, get your CVs ready!

The ideal candidate would be a college graduate or someone with equivalent work experience, preferably in an online newsroom for a major
publication producing original reporting. It will really help if you’re already familiar with consumer/business news and have a special interest in how public policy, regulation, and legislation impact consumers.

The person we hire will be expected to do quite a bit of writing and reporting under tight deadlines, and be able to do so without someone standing over their shoulders.

Anyone wishing to apply for the job will have to do so through the Consumer Reports career opportunities portal, but if you feel that you have material that can bolster your application, feel free to send it to
