Become A Writer At Turn On The Jets

Read here about how to join the Turn On The Jets writing staff for the 2013-2014 season

Want to join the flashy, high-stakes world of NFL blogging? Turn On The Jets is looking to hire a new staff writer for the 2013 NFL season. This is an unpaid position for somebody looking to gain writing and social media experience on a rapidly growing New York Jets/NFL site (30,000 unique visitors and 120,000 page views last month) We can only promise experience, increased exposure to your writing and more Twitter followers…and maybe a free Shake Shack meal if you are around New York City.

We are looking for 1-3 articles per week and contributions to our weekly roundtables. Ideally, the candidate will have previous writing experience and an interest in an analytical approach to the game of football. We don’t break news at TOJ. We don’t come up with flashy headlines sourced by anonymous people. Basically, pretend you are writing for The Daily News and then do the opposite of that. Previous experience looking at and breaking down game film is also encouraged. Finally, we like our writers to have an active social media presence, particularly on Twitter.

If you are interested, please send a 500-900 word writing sample to Come up with your own topic or angle, as we encourage our writers to think outside the box and come up with their own article ideas.
