The Keene Sentinel, an independent, family-owned community news organization serving southwestern New Hampshire, is looking for an enthusiastic general assignment reporter to work in a lively news environment.
We’re looking for someone who loves telling stories and constantly works to tell them in new and better ways; someone who is curious; someone who seeks out the news rather than waiting for it to fall into their lap and who will get into the community to do the type of reporting that makes journalism meaningful. The right candidate asks questions, follows a hunch and isn’t afraid to pitch good ideas. Applicants must have the self-discipline, drive and time management skills to juggle daily assignments, with the diligence and ambition to tackle thoughtful enterprise pieces.
This position provides an excellent opportunity to get solid training in a newsroom that values mentorship. The Sentinel publishes throughout the week on its various digital platforms, as well as in its six-day print newspaper. Reporters write for both print and the web; social media skills are a must.
Tell us how you fit the bill, and how you will make our paper better.
Please send your cover letter, resume, at least four writing samples, as well as your compensation requirements to: email@example.com. No phone calls, please.
