Description:

The Wisconsin State Journal, south-central Wisconsin's leading news source, is seeking an aggressive and motivated reporter to cover K-12 education, from the classroom to the state Capitol.

Few topical areas touch readers more than their children’s schools or the tax dollars used to pay for them. We need someone who can cut through the jargon, build sources among competing interests and identify stories that will have the most impact.

Experience in watchdog reporting, frequent use of public records law and a high comfort level working with data is required. This position also demands an ability to engage audiences via social media, report in real time for our online platforms and an aptitude or desire to shoot video. At least five years of daily newspaper reporting experience is preferred. Past educational coverage is desired, but being a self-starter and having a demonstrated work ethic matter more.

To be considered for the position, applicants must apply online by June 5. Please include a cover letter and five samples of your work or links to five recent stories.
