Search Engine Journal Looking for Editor-in-Chief: Are you the one?

We have big plans for SEJ this year! We are excited to announce today that we are searching for a new editor-in-chief. Our EIC will be in a highly visible role as the voice and face of SEJ. This U.S-based individual will be breaking exclusive news, procuring the best guest bloggers for unique and thought-provoking posts, and covering search conferences to interview the most-recognized personalities and experts in search marketing.

After building this community from the ground up 8 years ago, I’m looking to step down from Editing and overall day to day operations with SEJ and looking for someone to fill my big shoes!

[Ann Smarty will be assisting us in our search and will continue with SEJ.]

SEJ’s Editor-in-Chief is a highly visible, part-time role that will put you in front of the industry’s movers and shakers as well as those looking to learn more about search marketing. We are looking for someone who has bright ideas and a strong ability to execute on taking SEJ’s brand to the next level in reporting, insights, exclusives and search conference coverage.
