News Reporter
USA TODAY NETWORK, is looking for an aggressive, intellectually curious and ambitious journalist. Expect to work closely with breaking news, public safety, government and investigative reporters to identify trend, enterprise and watchdog coverage. Beat discipline and organizational skills are essential in order to balance the need for depth and enterprise with the need to remain competitive on major trial and legal developments. Sophisticated and urgent content is expected across mobile, desktop, social and print. You may be the right candidate for this job if you have a passion for telling stories, an eagerness to serve your audience in innovative ways across platforms, a hunger for breaking news, and a desire to learn from a talented group of coaches/editors and reporters in a collaborative culture. You should be a self-starter comfortable working in multiple types of media: reporting and writing stories; shooting photos and videos with an iPhone; and using social media to build a personal brand, identify stories and serve an audience. You should be nimble and able to tailor your approach to stories to satisfy audiences viewing your work in print or on a desktop browser, mobile device or tablet. We want an ambitious reporter to produce meaningful journalism that takes time, research and effort to develop. But we also want you to cover the news, efficiently and concisely, and break stories before anyone else.
