      You've got opportunities... as an editor at AOL

      If you are an editor or a producer who wants to use your skills in a
      whole new way, we've got some amazing jobs for you. We are building out
      the editorial and operations team for the AOL content platform, an
      organization that now combines our Seed and StudioNow freelance networks
      with innovative software tools in order to create the very best content
      on the largest number of topics in the most efficient ways.

      Every one of the manager jobs is appropriate for people with
      considerable journalism experience who want to be pioneers inventing new
      ways to recruit, train, motivate, assign, edit and produce the work of
      creative professionals. (We've also got some other roles for people
      starting out in their careers and looking for freelance editing work.
      See below.)

      The content network has already been used to create city guides on AOL
      Travel <http://travel.aol.com/> , cover NFL and NCAA teams on Fanhouse
      <http://fanhouse.com/> , profile celebrities
      <http://www.popeater.com/celebrities> for Popeater, and write
      biographies of candidates
      <http://www.politicsdaily.com/tag/@seedelection2010/> for Politics
      Daily. And we're just getting going.

      Below are short summaries of the job openings we've got. All but one is
      listed on AOL's corporate recruiting Web site. If you're interested
      please apply on that site. If you're not, please tell your friends. All
      of these are full time jobs and can be based either in New York or
      Nashville, where our StudioNow unit is based. (We want a small, tightly
      knit team, so we're avoiding remote workers for now.)
