AARP is the nation's largest non-profit membership organization with over 40 million members strong and leading a revolution in the way people view and live life after 50. At AARP, we are involved with the daily lives of more Americans in more ways than you can imagine. If you're ready, here's your chance to take action and make an impact in Washington, D.C.
AARP is seeking two experienced and skilled consumer-facing journalists to lead online content channels for aarp.org, our award-winning website. Reporting directly to the online executive producer in our Washington DC office, the successful candidates will be top-notch editorial thinkers and producers, able to conceive and create great content (practical, inspirational, and aspirational) for people striving to live their best lives after age 50.
Qualified candidates must have significant editorial and management (people management as well as project management) experience in news (preferably daily) and/or features, including several years in a web environment; must play extremely well with others (up, down, and sideways) in a complex organization that is not a pure publishing/content play; and must be utterly unflappable. Specialized knowledge of two of the following content areas, especially through a 50+ prism, is a huge plus: entertainment, food, technology and travel.
Qualified candidates are invited to apply by sending a resume to Lorne Epstein, recruiter, at Lepstein@AARP.org.
