At Active Interest Media, we believe the strength of our organization lies within the skill and talent of our employees.

The Creative Home group at Active Interest Media is always looking for talented individuals to join the team. We search for candidates with advanced knowledge and experience in one of our content areas: woodworking, gardening, and cooking. If you are a spirited and enthusiastic chef, gardener, DIY'er, or woodworker, and think you'd enjoy working for one of our magazines, we want to hear from you. While writing experience is important, we will consider candidates who do not have a writing background for editorial positions.
