REPORTER (JUNEAU, AK)

Newspaper REPORTER - The Juneau Empire, Alaska’s award-winning capital daily, is looking for an experienced, hard-hitting journalist to report on general and state news from the Alaska State Capitol in downtown Juneau.

 

As Alaska’s capital, Juneau sits at the forefront of state government, and covering the Legislature is one of our primary watchdog missions as a newspaper.

Our ideal candidate will possess strong analytical and investigative reporting skills, produce clean copy with a penchant for nailing down the details, and will be able to build and develop sources in a way that leads to unique articles. We want someone who can be the first to break news online, develop a day two story for print, but won’t drop the ball on investigative and enterprising projects along the way.

 

This Position Requires:

SKILLS

  • Experience using social media to report the news and promote your work is a must, and photography/videography skills are a desirable bonus.
  • Working comfortably and independently in team settings, strong proficiency in AP style and the ability to consistently meet the deadline are requirements for this position.

QUALIFICATIONS

At least two years experience at a daily newspaper, bachelor’s degree in journalism, English, a related field or equivalent work experience required.  Preference will be given to qualified candidates in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.

ABOUT US -The Empire is a 5,000-circulation daily newspaper in a remote but close-knit community of 33,000 people nestled in the heart of the Tongass National Forest, temperate rainforest and the largest national forest in North America. In addition to covering the annual legislative session, the newspaper also covers Alaska’s billion-dollar oil and gas industry, multi-million dollar fisheries, as well as community issues, ranging from homelessness and the heroin epidemic to mining and climate change.

 

ABOUT JUNEAU - To call Juneau an outdoor adventurer’s paradise would be an understatement. Juneau offers hundreds of trail miles through untouched wilderness leading to glaciers, waterfalls and mountain peaks. More than a million people visit Alaska’s capital every summer, many by cruise ship, just for a glimpse of what we call home. Local amenities include the University of Alaska Southeast, a nationally renowned micro-brewery, world-class ski resort, highly-acclaimed theater company and symphony orchestra, and a vibrant arts community.

 

What we offer you:

We offer competitive compensation and a benefits package that includes medical, dental, vision and life insurance; paid time off (vacation, sick, and holidays); and a 401k with employer match.
