Description:

The Call of Woonsocket, a daily newspaper serving the Blackstone Valley in northern Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts, seeks a full-time general assignment reporter to join our newsroom. This position requires a strong writer – attentive to detail and committed to accuracy – who will provide our readers the local politics, education and crime news that they rely on us for, along with relevant, compelling features. Our reporters must be engaged and invested in the communities they cover, while remaining flexible and able to multitask.

Successful candidates will be able to assist in our digital operation by adding editorial content to our Web site, and promoting it on social media – while also having a firm grasp of traditional journalism techniques including the ability to cultivate sources, generate story ideas, use AP style and write on deadline. Candidates should have some experience taking photos; page design experience is also a plus.

A bachelor's degree is required, as is reliable transportation. A driving background check will be required. This position will require some night and weekend work. 

To apply, e-mail a cover letter, résumé and up to 5 clips to Managing Editor Seth Bromley at sbromley@woonsocketcall.com. No phone calls please.
