Their ideal candidate has a range of talents. They must be interested and engaged in the lower-level community happenings, but also desire to seek out the new, the trendy and the hip. As much of the writing is done either by freelancers, they must be incredibly well organized, and be able to stick to a budget. They need to write as well as line edit, and be a stickler for deadlines. Web skills, particularly social networking, are also vital. Though not necessary, page design skills are very much welcome.
