To succeed at this editorship, you must be obsessed with the lives and business dealings of the moguls who run the most important and high-profile businesses in the world. Steve Jobs, Barry Diller, Ralph Lauren, Jay-Z, the Grahams, the Murdochs — you should be able to reel off a list of dozens more that you feel are ripe for coverage.
The stories published on this site will be personality-driven; this will be popular coverage, not financial/industry coverage. Keep that in mind when explaining to us why you’re perfect for this job.
You will have significant autonomy in writing pieces you feel are appropriate under this mandate. If you “get” what we’re trying to do with this new site, we’d love to talk to you.
(We’re also looking for an editorial intern for this site, so if you’re a newly-minted journalist looking to get a start in this field of coverage, now’s your chance!)
To apply, please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
-Links to previously published work online
-A cover letter explaining why you are perfect for this specific role at this specific site. Please also tell us who you think are the most over- and under-covered moguls of 2010, and why.
Applications are rolling, so apply as soon as possible if interested.
