By Nicole Russo
Posted on 31 January 2019 | 9:21 am — 

We at Charleston Weddings are looking for an enthusiastic, inspired, spunky, go-getter of an editorial assistant to join our team. The ideal candidate is a self-starter with a true passion for journalism and the wedding industry. Applicants should have college degrees in journalism (or in a related field) and a minimum of one year of professional experience doing similar work at a major consumer magazine, website/blog, or newspaper.

The editorial assistant is responsible for assisting in the creation and execution of print and digital content for Charleston Weddings’ magazine and site, and including, but not limited to, its Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest accounts, as well as its daily blog, The Wedding Row. Main responsibilities include tracking couples and submissions, researching and fact-checking material, sourcing content, and handling general administrative work for Charleston Weddings, plus its ancillary outlets, Asheville Wedding GuideHigh Country Wedding Guide, and The Wedding Row blog. Writing and editing opportunities will be added accordingly. The editorial assistant takes part in out-of-office wedding industry events (bolstering the brands’ public relations efforts), and assists the editorial team on photo shoots.

We are on the hunt for someone who has strong organizational skills and is experienced in proofing and copyediting (in adherence to both AP and Chicago styles); is whip-smart solid in feature-writing, grammar, and punctuation; communicates well in and out of an office setting; and can multitask and manage projects (and interns) with aplomb. Knowledge of Adobe InDesign, as well as a sense of humor, are preferred. Add a killer eye for great shots, impeccable (or, heck, budding) instinct for great stories, and willingness to check any ego at the door, and it’s a match. Yep, all this is a lot to ask, but Charleston’s got a lot to give!

Please send resume (including social media handles); a cover letter (mention your top five favorite feeds, sites, and newsletters, too); three writing samples; three mock Instagram posts (that could work in our feed) to
