Crittenden Research Inc., a publisher of national newsletters covering real estate and insurance for more than 40 years, has an immediate opening for one full-time, entry-level reporter/researcher in our Novato, Calif., office.
This position is a great opportunity for recent journalism school graduates looking to start their career on the ground floor. Successful candidates will have a command of AP style, keen attention to detail, and a passion for reporting on a highly focused business publication. We prefer candidates who have worked in a deadline-driven environment, such as a campus newspaper, internship or professional media outlet. Familiarity with the commercial insurance industry or financial markets will be a plus.
This full-time position will entail working under the direction of an editor and senior reporter(s), initially to gather data, report on such data to associates, enter data in a database, and write summaries for publication on a daily deadline. These duties will grow to include reporting on aspects of commercial insurance, through research and directly from sources, and writing analytical business-to-business stories for weekly publications. Other duties may include additional research, copy editing, proofing or additional reporting. Candidates must pass a copyediting and simple writing test. A bachelor’s degree is required.
Crittenden offers a casual and friendly workplace with opportunities for growth commensurate with effort as well as competitive wages and benefits.
