We're seeking to fill three positions:

  • Editor, Admissions Insider
  • Technology Reporter
  • Reporter, Inside Digital Learning

Editor, Admissions Insider

Inside Higher Ed, an established and growing national daily online publication covering the complex and compelling world of higher education, seeks an experienced editor to oversee Admissions Insider, a new content channel focused on college admissions. 

“Editor” barely captures the breadth of the roles this person will fill. Yes, the successful candidate will drive the editorial vision for the various forms of content we will deliver, and edit – and produce some of – that content.

But this will be a community of interest as well as a source of high-quality professionally oriented content, ultimately offering an integrated mix of information services, events and professional development. As a result, we expect the editor to become an ambassador to the admissions world and a national expert on these topics, as comfortable cultivating college admissions directors and high school counselors as the CEOs of the companies seeking to serve the industry.

The editor will be expected to:

  • Take the lead on setting editorial direction for the entire Admissions Insider suite of content products.
  • Conceive, assign and write or edit a stream of relevant, compelling content that will inform and engage readers who are professionals trying to do their jobs better.
  • Manage a staff reporter and relationships with an array of outside contributors (freelancers, columnists, bloggers) who will produce editorial content.
  • Use and interpret traffic and readership data to drive decisions about how best to serve our audience.
  • Represent Inside Higher Ed and Admissions Insider in speaking engagements and at other events.
  • Develop and launch a series of events that will help build meaningful relationships with our audience. 
  • Work with Inside Higher Ed colleagues and outside partners to develop other content or services.
  • Manage and cultivate online user community.

The successful candidate should have:

  • At least five years of professional experience.
  • Strong editorial expertise – we need someone with meaningful journalistic chops and excellent editing and writing skills.
  • Experience building or running things – be it a publication-within-a-publication, an event series, a brand, or a new venture of another kind.  
  • Comfort with public speaking and representing an organization.
  • Experience with business-to-business content; knowledge of the admissions or higher education market greatly preferred.

Reporter, Inside Digital Learning

Inside Higher Ed seeks a reporter for Inside Digital Learning, a new content channel focused on how colleges and universities use digital technologies to reimagine how students learn. Working with the IDL editor, the reporter will cover a wide range of issues related to digital learning: the continued growth and evolution of online education, the transformation of the textbook and courseware market, the emergence of new models for learning and credentialing, and the use of data analytics, among others.

The reporter will be expected to write several articles a week in a mix of formats, including breaking news, features, analysis and how-to. Candidates should be able to juggle multiple articles at once, and should like to dig deeply and to learn. Candidates should have at least two years of professional reporting experience; a background covering technology is a major plus.

Technology Reporter

Inside Higher Ed is seeking an experienced, enterprising reporter to cover technology issues. This job provides an opportunity to cover an industry in transition in large part due to technological changes, and to explore the cultural as well as the practical implications of those changes.

Just a few of the issues on this reporter's agenda: the continuing spread of online (and blended) education, the impact of technology on the role of professors in the classroom and the operations of institutions in the back office, the devolving textbook market and the spread of open educational resources, and the transformation of the scholarly publishing industry.

Our reporters mix beat reporting, analysis and creative approaches to telling stories; candidates should be able to juggle multiple articles at once, and should like to dig deeply and to learn. Candidates should have at least two years of full-time professional reporting experience; a background covering technology and/or higher education is a plus. Inside Higher Ed publishes breaking news, features, commentary, blogs and other content (including audio and video) each weekday, and has quickly established itself as a fresh, authoritative, independent voice for its 1.8 million unique monthly users and 116,000 daily e-mail subscribers.
