_Assistant to the Cartoon Editor_ The New Yorker Magazine

Health, Dental, 401K

Midtown Manhattan, New York, NY

For 80 years, The New Yorker magazine has maintained its status as the premiere outlet for the publication of cartoons. This is an opportunity to be an intergral part of that esteemed history. The Cartoon Editor is looking for a smart, literate, technologically savvy and highly organized person to act as his right hand (though left-handers are encouraged to apply). He/she will be responsible for trafficking and organizing submissions, maintaining schedules, acting as liaison with artists and editorial staff, and overseeing special projects.

Qualified candidates will be college graduates with some experience working in an office, preferably in magazine or book publishing; an ability to multi-task and set priorities; excellent writing, organizational, and computer skills; and a highly evolved comic sensibility. Soul of an artist is a plus, getting to work on time is a must. Plenty of opportunity for growth in this highly creative environment.

Contact: To apply for this position, please send your resume and an entertaining cover letter via e-mail to Marshall_Hopkins@newyorker.com. (No calls, please. Only qualified candidates will be contacted.)

PS: I think I am qualified for this job except for one thing. I don't have "the soul of an artist."
