Job StatusFull-time

Leading Washington news-gathering organization seeks reporters for newsletter and online positions. Our award-winning products -- nine online news services and 20 newsletters -- cover the federal policy process for professionals who need to know.

Our newsletters -- Inside the Pentagon, Inside EPA, Inside U.S. Trade, among them -- are world renowned for their investigative reporting, taking our readers inside the places (Congress, the White House, the agencies) where the policies are shaped. Our online services (such as InsideDefense, and World Trade Online) provide the fastest link to that news and add other dimensions -- keeping readers up-to-date with breaking news, allowing access to important documents, providing a gateway to invaluable archives. One recent addition, Inside Cybersecurity, provides an inside look at an emerging major federal commitment to forge a government-industry partnership to protect cyberspace even as cyber attacks increase in scope. Another, InsideEPA/climate, provides exclusive, detailed news on the Obama Administration's efforts, without congressional support, to impose greenhouse-gas controls. Our current opening is in our Defense Group.

We entertain responses from two types of professionals – those who want to join our team of investigative reporters and those whose current interest centers on new-media activities. Our editorial team of enterprise reporters has a worldwide reputation for accurate, in-depth, behind-the-scenes reporting, singularly focused on breaking the big story for policy professionals, many of whom for over 30 years have depended on us for the “inside” word. Our robust new-media operation extends the value and scope of our content through document-gathering, blogs and e-mail products, in positions suited for striving but less-experienced reporters committed to finding the real news hidden in the massive amount of information that moves around official Washington. We welcome experience but do not require it.

If you are looking for your next reporting challenge or your first reporting opportunity, contact us. You can share in the excitement of covering federal policymaking at a time when the Obama Administration, in its homestretch and facing a Republican Congress, promises to create policy through administrative fiat and the buildup continues to what may be a game-changing election in 2016.

Start the process by sending a substantive cover letter and resume to Describe your interest, background and career goals.

Alan Sosenko, Publisher.
