Movieline Is Hiring!


As hard as this is to believe, we're just one month away from our first birthday here at the new Movieline. It's been a whirlwind year of revealing interviews, gonzo festival coverage, zingy cultural criticism and penetrating insights into the power of Taylor Lautner's abs, and we all sincerely hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoy bringing it you every day. But as we graduate into toddlerhood, we're beginning to feel growing pains: The time has come to expand our family and coverage. We're looking to fill several positions on the Movieline masthead.

What are we looking for?

Immediately, we're looking to fill a Night Editor position (12:00 am EST - 9:00 am EST shift), and would consider applicants from overseas. Also, we have a Weekends Editor position available, for which we'd give preference to NYC and LA-based applicants. Both require blogging as well as original reporting and interviews.

As for what we'd like from you:

· Be very familiar with Movieline and what we're about.

· Have professional experience working on the film and TV beat (contacts in the industry are a huge plus).

· Have a definable voice, a sense of humor, and Jedi-like skills at producing clean and plentiful copy on a constant deadline.

Interested? Please send a resume and cover letter telling us why you'd be a perfect fit at Movieline to

Thanks, and good luck!

    But what you really need is a fashion correspondent based out of Tennessee, right?

  • OldTowneTavern says:

    How about an LA crankypants with absolutely no contacts or experience who just likes to write snippy things in lieu of starting another script?

  • Jamie says:

    I had three letters published in Movieline when it was in print. Can those be my writing samples?
    I'm kidding. I'm wholly unqualified for any of your positions because of my lack of contacts and experience beyond fandom. But congratulations on one year and being able to expand. That's totally awesome for you guys, and I'm so psyched that you're online. I'm on here every day.

  • TimGunn says:

    Can I apply to be Kyle's assistant/masseuse?

  • Furious D says:

    I applied for a job and they said I was perfect for a missionary position. And I thought: "Wait a minute, this isn't a religious organization?"

  • Old No.7 says:

    Seth, my resume/cover letter is on it's way.

  • Copy Hag says:

    Just a tip -- You should probably spend more time proofing your resume and cover letter than you did writing this comment ("its" vs. "it's").

  • hellcat says:

    You're hired! We've been lookin' for someone like you here in Hollywood.

  • sweetbiscuit says:

    Well, I would apply but I know Old No. 7 has got it in the bag. And by "it" I mean some kind of blackmail dirt on Seth.

  • What Old No. 7 said.

  • Helena says:

    I've been following you guys since the days at Gawker - and can't believe it's almost been a year.
    What about a german girl with absolutely no professional experience, since still stuck in college? I could cover the Berlinale! Just kidding. Ok. Not kidding, dreaming.
    I'm happy for you Movieline runs so well. Congrats from overseas!

  • Martini Shark says:

    Hollywood is full of sad individuals willing demean themselves by revealing intimate aspects to complete strangers in the hopes that they can find relevance in their empty lives, only to have the souless entity in front of which they lay prostrate dispose of them like a spent item.
    I would like to become one of those individuals.

  • SunnydaZe says:

    Yes, well, of course, this is just the sort blinkered philistine pig ignorance I've come to expect from you non-creative garbage. You sit there on your loathsome, spotty behinds squeezing blackheads, not caring a tinker's cuss about the struggling artist.
    You excrement! You lousy hypocritical whining toadies with your lousy colour TV sets and your Tony Jacklin golf clubs and your bleeding masonic handshakes! You wouldn't let me join, would you, you blackballing bastards. Well I wouldn't become a Movieline editor now if you went down on your lousy, stinking, purulent knees and begged me!
    I mean, I was...I was a bit on edge just now, but if I were a Movieline editor I'd sit at the back and not get in anyone's way.

  • raincoaster says:

    That is some kinda genius manifesto, right there, Martini Shark. If you don't get the gig, you can always start a loopy religion or something.

  • These are fantastic guidelines you have posted regarding resume writing. Everyone's resumes are all different (as it is a representation of you professionally) so a template only serves to guide you in crafting it.
