The Standard-Times, an award-winning daily newspaper in New Bedford, Mass. is looking for a driven, naturally curious, experienced news reporter to join our team.

The successful candidate must be comfortable handling a variety of assignments in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment, while being organized and able to simultaneously keep long-term stories moving forward.

We are a community newspaper in a proud city of 90,000 people. New Bedford is a hotbed for news from its commercial fishing industry to the issues that drive news coverage at most mid­sized cities — crime, drug addiction, education and local politics.

We are looking for a candidate who handles breaking news — crashes, fires, hurricanes, snowstorms; who stays awake and alert during government meetings; who produces clean copy; and who thrives working on a team.

Successful candidates should be social media savvy (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) and comfortable taking photos and video. A candidate who’s interested in participating in podcasts is a plus.

At least two years of newspaper or equivalent experience and a four­ year college degree are required. Hours are flexible as needed to cover news events, and include some evenings and a weekly weekend shift.

To apply, email your resume and four writing samples to Jennifer Driscoll, News Editor, at jdriscoll@s­-t.com.

When applying, mention you saw this opening listed at JournalismJobs.com.
