We produce deeply reported stories that appear on our website and in print, online and broadcast editions of media outlets across the country.
Applicants must have at least 5 years of professional journalism experience, including at least two years in a newsroom. A background in the issues we cover is a big plus. The ability to speak Spanish is also a plus.
Our work is fairly specialized, so please take a look at our website before deciding to apply. Then, if you think you’re the one we’re looking for, send a resume, short cover letter and three strong clips by May 17 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
