About the Company

Forbes is growing its News Desk and looking for a generalist with a particular interest in covering Arts and Entertainment. The ideal candidate should be a news obsessive with the ability to think quickly and creatively off breaking news and emerging news trends. The challenge for the desk is to quickly distill big news events down to their essence in crystal-clear prose and with proper context for the Forbes Topline story format, adding supplemental reporting when possible. Top candidates will be culture obsessives who can spot news, and identify trends, early. This is a contract position—part-time and full-time possible—with the potential for full-time employment.
