As The Truth About Guns approaches its sixth year, we’re currently sitting at around 3 million unique readers per month. For that amazing success we thank our readers, commentators, writers and editors. Rest assured we’re not resting on our laurels. We’re currently working on improving the site with new features, a new design, video and much more (suggestions always welcome). Meanwhile, we’re drowning in emails. We need someone to filter them for us. To do that job we need someone who can . . .
separate the wheat from the chaff.
Specifically, someone who can read and respond to the dozens of reader news tips and forward stories for blogging to Dan and myself. The editor must also post links to important stories (that aren’t exactly blog worthy) on our Facebook and Instagram pages. He or she must also sort through administrative emails — requests from manufacturers, writer correspondence, etc. — needed.
Applicants must be a gun guy or gal who knows TTAG inside and out, and has a feel for the prevailing gun gestalt. It’s also a highly sensitive position; the email editor would have access to our public and private email, the site and our Facebook account.
The job pays a relatively paltry $15 per hour, with a guaranteed minimum of 10 hours per week. A Texas-based editor would be a bonus, but the job can be performed anywhere. Note: that’s the starting salary, and the job comes with plenty of perks (e.g., guns to test, free swag and training).
This is a mission critical job. We are, in effect, putting a large measure of TTAG’s editorial quality in the editor’s hands. To apply for this position please email email@example.com with a resume (text embedded in the email), putting EMAIL EDITOR (all caps) in the subject line. Employment history in the firearms industry is not a requirement.
Again, we thank our community for its ongoing support. We will continue to do everything we can to provide readers with the highest quality firearms-related news, reviews and editorials. To tell the truth about guns.
