California Watch is looking to hire two experienced investigative reporters to cover the environment and public safety. In addition to at least five years doing the job, the unit is looking for "a proven track record of delivering high-quality investigative and enterprise reporting projects."
The successful candidate will be expected to balance a steady diet of quick-hit and longer-term investigative and high-impact enterprise stories and will be expected to file blog posts on a daily basis. We are looking for a reporter who knows and understands issues facing California and who can generate stories of statewide significance and reach. Strong writing skills are required for this job, which mixes many of the traditional job requirements of investigative reporting but also mandates that the successful candidate be an innovative thinker and someone who embraces the use of social media and new technology.
March 29 is the deadline to apply.
