If you've always wanted to join the Apartment Therapy team, have a passion for topics related to interior design and the home, reside in Austin, and are equipped with ready-to-go blogging skills…we want you! We're looking to double our Austin team by adding another blogger to our lineup in the coming weeks and are officially putting the call out today. Interested? All the details below...
This is a part-time, paid, freelance position (1 post per day with occasional multi-post assignments) and it's preferable (but not required) if your other gigs are related to the realm of design, furniture or home solutions.
What we're specifically looking for is someone enthused about helping direct others to inspirations and solutions for a happy and stylish home. So this means a great blogging voice and an equally inspiring eye for beautiful images, preferably photos taken yourself (we'll definitely give extra points for candidates who showcase their own photographic skills in their sample posts).
- excellent photography skills
- an understanding of the foundations of good design
- a desire to help others
- proficiency writing in a blog format
- a reliable computer at home
- a reliable high speed internet connection
- a current digital camera, preferably a DSLR or prosumer point and shoot
- available regularly via AIM or Google Talk
- Photoshop or Photoshop Elements
- flexible and team oriented personality
Please email applications to firstname.lastname@example.org with "AUSTIN BLOGGER" as your subject with the following information:
- Your name and contact information
- How long you have been reading Apartment Therapy
- What you do full time
We require all applicants to send one of each of the following sample posts (3 total) for consideration. And be sure to check out some of the great existing Austin posts from our archives written by Adrienne Breaux for reference:
