International Business Times specializes in providing coverage of the business and finance issues impacting Wall Street and Main Street. The successful candidate will work with the managing editor to identify and contact potential contributors who will add expert opinions and unique perspectives on numerous issues of interest to our readers. The Editorial Assistant will compile lists of prospective contributors to be identified that will include: CPAs; financial advisers; day traders; analysts; C-Suite experts; academics; and authors. In some instances the successful candidate will be directly involved in "closing the deal" when looking to add to the list of International Business Times contributors. Collaborate with team members on projects as needed.
