Directing social-media posters to make sure all accounts remain lively and active throughout the day, with an emphasis on promoting content in a way that is both punchy and journalistically sound. As this is an all-hands-on deck operation, the role will also involve directly composing posts.

Staying in contact with the editorial team to have a good sense of stories that are coming.

Using analytics and data to inform and improve decision-making. This includes everything from promoting stories about breaking news to developing longer-term strategies to get our articles in front of more eyeballs.

White House Correspondent

National Review is looking for an energetic writer with a strong background in reporting and an analytic mind to serve in a newly created position aimed at holding the executive branch accountable. The ideal candidate should be able to deliver a regular mix of news and reported commentary that will break free of the normal constraints of Washington “access journalism.” Ultimately, this journalist will provide readers with an honest account of what is actually happening in the White House and within the broader administration, and produce coverage that others are forced to follow.

To be successful, the correspondent will have to be able to write both news and analysis, and to do so at varying lengths, and within a range of deadlines; to find creative ways to produce scoops in one of the most competitive beats in journalism; and to be able to shift gears between filing shorter posts on breaking news and writing broader pieces that could appear either online or in print.

Applicants should have a strong grasp of National Review’s mission, legacy, values, and an understanding of its readership.

Key Responsibilities:

● Serve as NR’s eyes and ears in the White House.

● Cover the daily White House briefings without thinking of them as a straightjacket that gets in the way of pursuing other worthy stories.

● Seek out scoops across the administration, including at the departmental and agency level.

● Post updates on the Corner on a regular basis.

● Contribute longer pieces to both print and online.

Qualifications:

● At least several years of political writing experience, preferably with some background in White House reporting.

● Proven record of producing original reporting as well as insightful reported commentary.

● Ability to file clean copy under deadline conditions.

● Willingness to occasionally hop on at odd hours if news demands it.
