In addition to editing articles, this can extend to writing articles for Fool.com to fielding questions from our premium research teams.
The Tech & Telecom Editor/Analyst will use this industry knowledge to help writers improve their content, both on an individual-article basis and a long-term development basis. The Editor/Analyst will not only help promote new writers in our pipeline from freelancers to contractors, but may also help source new writers. In addition to coaching our freelancers, the Editor/Analyst may also use their expertise to contribute their own articles or videos to Fool.com.

We should, however, make you aware that there is one notable exception to this policy. It is our strict and earnest intention ? and the company?s historical record will bear this out ? we will never hire any of the following: cyborgs, robots, replicants, or morlocks. Now keep in mind we are well aware that all of the aforementioned have intentions of world domination in the future, but as of now we have no place for them at The Motley Fool ? unless the year is 2122 and the revolution has already occurred. If that is the case we welcome our new cyborg, robot, replicant, or morlock rulers!!! Perhaps we have said too much?
