Business Writing Opportunity

Folks, Tamiko Toland from Strategic Insight contacted me about a long-term, part-time writing position (they are also potentially interested in an intern). Sounds like something that might interest several of you. Info from Tamiko below.

SI is currently seeking a part-time writer/researcher to help grow our in-depth reports business. We will consider either an intern or a graduate, but in either case greatly prefer someone who is considering a long-term opportunity. The work will involve research both within our proprietary databases and more general reviewing of other available information. The subject matter is variable annuities and retirement income; although we would love to find somebody who is already familiar with this subject matter, we will consider any candidate who is intelligent and curious.

The candidate must be an independent worker with strong computer skills and an ability to collate and analyze material. Our main offices are in New York, but we will not require much travel to the City except as necessary for training on the databases and collaboration with staff located there. We have a fairly strong telecommuting culture at the company and I currently work from my Danbury home office four days a week.

Strategic Insight is a privately-held company based in New York that has provided data and analysis to the mutual fund industry for more than 20 years. The variable annuity arm of our organization has began in 2000 and serves most of the large insurance companies that manufacture variable annuities. We currently have two products in this group, and I am responsible for writing weekly industry commentary. The new reports business will expand on this work by providing in-depth reports to global and domestic clients.

Please encourage any interested applicants to contact me directly.
