TopSpeed.com is hiring an automotive journalist (paid position)
... Love cars?
We’re looking to hire a dedicated automotive journalist/editor/blogger to join topspeed.com team. If you’re good, we’ll pay you, usher you into the cult of automotive journalism, invite you along to auto shows, involve you in podcasting, maybe get you into a media vehicle or two and, of course, extract great writing about autos from you along the way. It’s all in a day’s work, and every moment is fun for the right person.
You should be a consumer advocate with a contextual view of automobiles in their respective segments (i.e. is it good at what it’s designed to do? is it good compared to others in the same class?), rather than a quicker/faster/cooler-is-better mindset.
