Media Organization: Mic.com
Mic’s approach to news is as unique as our generation. We’re founded on a simple idea: Young people deserve a news destination that offers quality coverage tailored to them. Our generation will define the future. We are hungry for news that keeps us informed and helps us make sense of the world.
Too many media outlets overlook us or assume we only want to read fluff. But we know that young people are inquisitive. We know they believe substantive news can also spark interesting conversations. We know they have a healthy skepticism for conventional wisdom. Mic’s editors and writers share those attributes with our readers. This sensibility informs everything we do.
Mic is looking for an exceptional staff reporter to join the Connections team in NYC. As a Connections reporter, you'll be covering the myriad sex, dating, relationship and friendship issues that are relevant to millennials and how we connect with each other in the digital age.
As a Connections staff writer, you’ll do a solid mix of features writing with day-to-day reporting on trending and breaking news stories; you should be equally comfortable with doing both. The ideal candidate will be well-versed in sex and dating issues and won’t shy away from writing about taboo topics. You should be savvy at finding news stories on Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr, etc., and you should be excited to get on the phone every day and call up sources. You should have strong opinions about topics like birth control, motherhood, Tinder, sex education and work spouses. You should also have a sharp eye, a smart and compelling voice and a knack for spotting trends in the sex and relationships world.
