The Watercraft Journal Looks to Hire a News & Feature Editor


Did you know that you could make upwards to $1,500 a month writing for The Watercraft Journal all by putting in an extra hour or two a day worth of work? Seriously, it’s that easy. Because The Watercraft Journal continues its aggressive industry-leading daily (Monday-through-Friday) publishing schedule, and we need as much help as we can get to continue to entertain and inform our ever-growing readership, we’re excited to announce that we’re hiring!

Right now, The Watercraft Journal needs to fill a very important position: a News & Feature Editor! That’s right, we’re looking for self-motivated, dedicated enthusiasts looking to work with the single most popular PWC magazine in the world to help spread the word about our industry’s best and brightest brands and manufacturers, as well as help provide a focused spotlight on our sport’s best freeride/freestyle riders, manufacturers and events! Here are the details below:

News Editor
Shaw Group Media, the publisher of The Watercraft Journal (watercraftjournal.com) is looking a self-motivated, energetic person to hire as News & Feature Editor. The News & Feature Editor must have a strong interest in the personal watercraft (PWC) industry, be at least somewhat familiar with proper terminology, technology and persons/companies therein, or willing to learn quickly.

The News & Feature Editor must be able to turn around news content into fast, legible and informative written content for The Watercraft Journal. Applicants are encouraged to have several social media feeds providing leads for potential news that the rest of the Editorial teams might not have access to. An ongoing Google document is regularly updated with already pre-approved news topics to be written about, as well.

Riding ability, photographic talent or writing experience is appreciated and encouraged, but not necessarily mandatory.

The News & Feature Editor position is a 1099 freelance/subcontractor position and will be paid twice a month per a predetermined scale for each written article. There will be a 90-day trial period for every applicant to evaluate work ethic, determination and commitment to providing superior, reliable news-worthy PWC content for The Watercraft Journal audience.

All serious inquires are to email introductory “cover letter” and resume to kevin.shaw@shawgroupmedia.com.
