Description:

The Register Guard, a Gatehouse newspaper in Eugene, Oregon, is seeking an experienced Causes Reporter. From climate change to homelessness, racism, economic disparity, environmentalism, ethical eating, LGBTQ, gender, social justice and more, this reporter would be responsible for thoughtful, comprehensive reporting on the issues our readers care most about.

We’re seeking a dedicated, passionate reporter who can develop a broad network of sources throughout the community and is as equally comfortable interviewing government officials as they are talking with boots-on-the-ground advocates. The ability to breakdown issues into easy to understand language, explain key arguments and tell our readers what it means and why they should care is vital in this position.

This reporter should be a skilled writer who can tell engaging stories about the issues in our community – from short daily turnarounds to comprehensive enterprise through a variety of media and on multiple platforms. Demonstrated knowledge of how to use social media to engage with audiences and extend the reach of reporting is necessary. 

Schedule will vary according to workload; night and weekend work may be required. Applicants should have a degree in journalism or related field of study or equivalent work experience.

Qualified applicants should submit a cover letter, resume, application and work samples to rgjob.applications@registerguard.com. Complete job description, instructions and applications can be found online at http://projects.registerguard.com/pages/rg-jobs/

All employment offers are contingent on the results of a pre-employment drug screening
