November 21, 2013
Job ID: 1536418



Metro, the world’s largest and fastest growing print and online newspaper, has an opening for a versatile news reporter with online and print experience to join our Philadelphia newsroom. This position is part of our local news team, and will be part of a two-person reporting crew, charged with covering the city of Philadelphia in a way that will keep our readers informed, interested and intrigued.

To further our efforts of reaching our core demographic -- 18-34 city-centric upwardly mobile men and women -- we must not only report the news, but find and package it in a way that makes it relevant to our readers. Our coverage must always be viewed through the prism of: "How does this apply to our reader's life?"

This is not an entry level job. Candidates should have sources and contacts in Philadelphia or the proven ability to develop them quickly. Because of the nature of Metro, specialized beat work will not be the norm. The ability to cover a wide range of subjects—City Hall, crime, schools, features, etc. — is crucial, while managing time properly to allow for both daily coverage online and in print, and longer-term feature projects.

Candidates should have a minimum of 2 years’ experience of news reporting at a daily newspaper or news website.
Applicants should submit 5 clips (links preferred) and 3 ideas for news stories based on recent events with his or her resume.
