POSITION SUMMARY:

The National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) is seeking a detail-oriented news reporter to cover student aid-related regulations, research, trends, and best practices for the NASFAA website and daily electronic newsletter.

The reporter will post and update website content, distribute news articles and other association content through NASFAA’s social media channels, and assist in production of NASFAA’s weekly policy podcast. While the reporter should expect to work roughly 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily, they should also allow for occasional evening work as needed. The reporter will also coordinate with the rest of NASFAA’s three-person editorial team to distribute the daily e-newsletter at 8:00 a.m. ET every weekday.

NASFAA offers a competitive salary with excellent benefits and opportunities for growth. While the reporter does not need to be based in Washington, D.C., occasional travel to Washington, D.C., or to reporting locations may be required.
