Columbus CEO, a lively business magazine in the heart of thriving Columbus, Ohio, ISO an associate editor.

The right candidate is a news breaker who feeds off developing a deep network of trusted sources and making waves in print and online. You must enjoy an environment of rapidly shifting projects and priorities,
but you’ll be rewarded with rarely having to stay late or work weekends. Must have a strong writing voice and be as comfortable spinning out thoughtful, meticulously researched, 3,500-word magazine
features as you are writing spot business news with accuracy and wit. Non-business journalists should not shy away from this post. It boils down to having fun telling compelling stories about people. You’ll be working on meaningful projects and meeting the top business and government leaders in a city brimming with new energy. Bonus: You’ll get occasional bylines in our sister publication, The Columbus Dispatch.
