Students, some jobs for your consideration:
1. The Atlantic Wire is hiring ASAP for two positions:
Night editor: A great stepping stone gig with high visibility and freedom, this is a slot for the curious news hound who can run The Atlantic Wire from 7 p.m. - 11 p.m. EST, Sunday through Thursday nights. Responsible for 4 breaking news posts per night, across all areas of interest — global, national, politics, culture, tech, and beyond. High curiosity, intellectual honesty, and social savvy are musts. Good example of what the shift looks like here, from our dearly departing Adam Clark Estes: http://www.theatlanticwire.com/authors/adam-clark-estes/
Late-night editor: Good for a true night owl, or anyone on the West Coast or further that-a-way. Responsible for 4 breaking news posts per night, 11 p.m.-3 a.m. EST, Sunday thru Thursday nights. Interest in international news and cable news/media is ideal.
Candidates for these positions should already have breaking news/hard news experience, and previous wire experience would be a plus. To apply, send a cover letter email with links to your online portfolio to Matt Sullivan, Deputy Editor, The Atlantic Wire, at email@example.com.
2. Editor, Santa Fe Reporter
The award-winning Santa Fe Reporter seeks an editor-in-chief who’s innovative, irascible and crazy enough to chase the stories no one else will. About us: The Reporter has built a legacy on exposing corruption and routinely excelling at both serious investigative reporting and incisive arts and culture coverage. With a young, enthusiastic, talented staff of full-timers and freelancers, we’re the beating heart of an artistically rich city that can be at once gorgeous and gritty, creative and critical, and anything but ordinary. We piss off public officials, and we win awards. About you: Ideally, you have several years of reporting and editing experience in both news and culture. You’re as comfortable editing a video as you are writing a great headline, managing a budget, dreaming up a new special issue, penning the occasional cover story and enforcing deadlines. You’re a social-media maven who’s good with commas; you’re a news junkie with an eye for great design. You’re driven and self-directed, but most of all, you have a deep passion for journalism’s critical role in a free society. If interested, please send a cover letter, resume and 2-3 clips to current editor Alexa Schirtzinger, J-’08, at firstname.lastname@example.org. No phone calls, please.
3. Federal News Radio in Washington, D.C. has a couple of jobs open: One is a full-time digital reporter position; hours will probably be 3 a.m. to 11 a.m. The other two openings are freelance. One is as a digital reporter, the other is as a radio show producer. Inside scoop: We’ve got a small staff and freelance positions usually lead to steady gigs either here or upstairs at the local news station WTOP. The point person is our program director Lisa Wolfe, email@example.com. You can apply here: http://www.federalnewsradio.com/careers. This lead thanks to Emily Kopp J-’01. (Morning co-host at FNR). Emily is happy to field questions from J-Schoolers about these positions.
4. CBS Local Radio in NYC
This lead comes to us thanks to Erik Parker, MA-Politics, 2010, who is off to make his own documentary. Erik is willing to advise J-School applicants. firstname.lastname@example.org. http://www.indeed.com/viewjob?jk=986a5938897dde34&q=digital+music&l=10001&tk=17o8qfkvp069g0e1&from=ja&alid=595482c1b5d6abb1&utm_source=jobseeker_emails&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=job_alerts
Inside Scoop from Erik: “While this description asks for someone with 5-plus years, I think they are going to step it down to Associate Producer, which means people with much less experience can apply. They do want someone who knows the “urban” (read: hip-hop/R&B) world and has written about the genre. There is also an element of video production that goes into the job but it is primarily a job for a writer who has experience in the urban realm. If anyone from the J-School wishes to apply they should do so soon at the above link. Look at the stories on this page for homework, if you apply.
