The Jersey Journal, Secaucus, New Jersey

Date Posted August 16, 2019

Specialty Not Specified
Job Status Full-time
Salary Negotiable

Description:

There’s no place quite like Hudson County, N.J. for interesting, provocative, and fast-paced breaking news. And there’s no news organization that tells Hudson County’s stories better, in print and on the web, than The Jersey Journal. If you’re looking for a great place to grow and succeed as a reporter, then we’re looking for you.

We have an immediate opening for a general assignment reporter – someone who can cover a parade on Sunday, produce a compelling feature about a “dreamer” headed to college on Monday, and then turn an investigative story about dangerous road conditions for the weekend. The successful candidate will be comfortable producing both snap updates on breaking news and thoughtful content on high-interest topics that engages readers with depth and originality.

This position is based in The Journal’s main office in Secaucus, N.J., but will be expected to travel throughout Hudson County and northern New Jersey as the news demands. Candidates must have a valid driver’s license, a reliable vehicle, and be able to work a flexible schedule, including weekend, holiday, and evening shifts. The regular work schedule for this position is Sunday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with occasional evening assignments.

Published six days a week, Monday through Saturday, The Journal is the only daily news organization located in New Jersey’s most densely populated county, which is situated immediately across the Hudson River from Manhattan (our offices have a spectacular view of the New York skyline). Founded in 1867, we’ve been part of the Advance Publications family for more than seven decades.
