Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Yep, that's right! After over two and a half years writing for Racked, Chicago editor Jared Hatch (that's me) is venturing forward into new domains. My last day at Racked will come at the end of this month. In the meantime, the most important item of business to attend to is hiring for a freelance Chicago editor.
Let's talk about the job. We're looking for people with excellent writing chops and a passion for all things shopping . The work involves daily blogging about shopping, fashion, sales, earth shattering news, store openings, closures, scandals, rumors, the championed brands, industry fiascos and all the local personalities involved.
The job is freelance with salary commensurate with experience, and includes all the glory that comes with being a Racked editor. Preference will be given to candidates based in Chicago, but stellar writers located elsewhere will also be considered. To apply, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a paragraph about yourself and a paragraph about your interest in the job. No attachments please. If we like what we see, we'll respond quickly. Thanks!
