AtlanticLIVE, the events arm of The Atlantic magazine, seeks a highly motivated, entrepreneurial, and team-oriented professional to support Atlantic Washington at Large and AtlanticLIVE Editor in Chief Steve Clemons.
Within AtlanticLIVE’s progressive, collegial work environment, this role provides a unique opportunity for broad yet high-level exposure to both the editorial and the business behind a media event production enterprise, with a great trajectory for earning increased responsibility. The Editorial Assistant will serve as the primary support for Mr. Clemons and will also have the opportunity to participate in a series of projects, such as event management/staffing; research and moderator preparations; social media and promotion; and PR and communications.
The ideal candidate:
Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in its candidates. In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions.
1. Force of Intellect - Atlantic Media seeks a discipline and rigor of thought as manifested, often, in exceptional academic performance and, later, success in a professional environment.
2. Spirit of Generosity - Equally, Atlantic Media seeks what we term a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition towards service and selfless conduct.
