Harvard is hiring a Wikipedia editor

Harvard is hiring a Wikipedia editor

Anyone can edit Wikipedia, which is why the online encyclopedia has developed a bad reputation for inaccuracies. But how bad could it be if even Harvard is getting on board the Wikipedia train? The prestigious university is hiring a part-time "Wikipedian-in residence." Here's the job description:

Adding sources for existing pages and creating new pages on notable topics. Provide appropriate formatting and metadata (and OCR cleanup in the case of texts) to upload public domain content to Wikimedia and Wikisource, and facilitate the use of such materials by other Wikipedia users. Explore the creation of WikiProjects related to Houghton holdings and promote participation in such projects.

Unfortunately for your long-term goals of climbing the Harvard Wikipedia ladder to the top, this is a part-time, temporary position. But it pays $16/hour, so why not apply? Click here to see if you meet the qualifications.
