Description:

Mid-Atlantic Media (MAM), publisher of  Philadelphia Jewish Exponent and Metro Kids Magazine, among others, is looking for an energetic, experienced, assertive, accurate and organized reporter/writer with boundless curiosity and ability to learn quickly.  A true "content generator" that can multi-task producing story bylines, digital posts, audio and video.   

Responsibilities include:

    Pitch, edit and write multiple news and feature stories for our Philadelphia area publication titles in both print and digital platforms. Success is achieved through efficiency, organization, accuracy and good judgment.

    Work and own your reporting beats to develop sources and story ideas, and to deepen your knowledge of the Jewish  and local community

    Conduct story interviews in person and/or over the phone

    Provide photography, video, audio or other artwork for each story you write

    Take photos and video everywhere you go in the community

    Create daily social media posts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)

    Perform administrative tasks (eg. upload stories to website, compile community calendar, compile obituary listing, proof the pages before publication).

Available and amenable to work days, nights, weekdays and weekends. This is not a 40 hour per week job. So eagerness, passion and curiosity are musts.

Knowledge of the Philadelphia-area local and Jewish community, Judaism, Israel and the Delaware valley are a plus. Teamwork is a must.

Mid-Atlantic Media, in addition to publishing the aformentioned titles above, encourages writing for its other publication titles which include Baltimore Jewish Times, Baltimore Style, Baltimore's Child, Frederick's Child, Montgomery Magazine, Washington Family and Washington Jewish Week . A terrific opportunity for a journalist to establish clips and get his/her byline out in the marketplace.
