News reporting is at the core of our mission at Chicago Phoenix. As we continue to grow and expand our coverage, we’ll need a large, diverse and dedicated team of reporters to tackle stories throughout the city and region. The ideal candidate will have a degree in Journalism and hands-on reporting experience in Chicago or nearby. With that said, a firm grasp on AP Style, journalistic ethics, multimedia and alignment with our social media strategy are extremely important. A strong understanding of the local LGBT community, politics, relevant organizations, culture and activism are significant advantages as well.
General assignment reporters will work closely with the Editor-in-chief on a per-story basis and have opportunity to grow in their positions as the publication continues to grow. Depending on the enterprising nature of the reporter, the position would entail roughly 10 – 25 hours/week.
