CLIMATE NEWS WRITERS (job) by Bear Guerra

Via InsideClimate News:

“InsideClimate News is looking for a talented reporter who can write fast and with authority about climate change and energy issues for our news site and social media.

This is an entry-level position based in New York City. It is an exciting opportunity to work closely with an award-winning team of journalists and develop expertise in one of the hottest, most important topics of our time.

We see this as a key position to complement our investigative work as climate change emerges as a defining issue in the national political conversation. We're looking for an ambitious self-starter, someone who is hungry to create buzz and react to it, who wakes up eager to find out what happened and what's next. This reporter must feel comfortable writing short but incisive news stories daily, while juggling social media engagement and other work.

The ideal candidate has a proven ability to work independently, manage multiple tasks with accuracy, and meet deadlines in a fast-paced environment. You must prize accuracy, rigor and attention to detail and have a keen interest in climate change, energy and environmental justice issues and a passion for the kind of hard-hitting public interest journalism ICN delivers.”

NEWS CORRESPONDENTS COVERING TECHNOLOGY (job) by Bear Guerra

Via NPR:

“NPR’s Business Desk is seeking a reporter/correspondent in San Francisco to cover the largest technology companies that are transforming how we live. Technology is the most dynamic and influential industry of our times. It has revolutionized how we communicate, date and marry, how we learn and entertain ourselves and how we shop around the world. It has created massive fortunes and the big egos that go with them.  Now technology companies have come under attack for allowing their platforms to become vehicles for hatred and violence and foreign meddling in elections.

The ideal candidate for the position has a high news metabolism, writes and thinks quickly and loves to break news. This journalist is attuned to the big trends in Silicon Valley as well as pop culture.  We’re looking for someone who can shine a spotlight on key personalities, while critically examining an industry that is opaque and often secretive.”

ASPIRING REPORTERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS INTERESTED IN CIVIC ISSUES (fellowship) by Bear Guerra

Via City Bureau:

“The City Bureau Civic Reporting Program is a paid, 11-week opportunity for emerging journalists (Reporting Fellows & Photojournalism Fellows) and mid-career reporters (Team Leaders). Fellows will work in teams with Team Leaders to produce a journalism project on a single, big-picture sociopolitical issue facing communities on Chicago’s South and West Sides. The issue will be predetermined by City Bureau editorial staff, but fellows are able to research and pitch their own projects within that big-picture topic. All participants will also spend several hours a week mentoring high school students at our community media partner.

Projects may include written stories, audio, video, illustration, photography, data visualization, text-messaging services, in-person activities, zines, events and much more. All participants are encouraged to think creatively about how to improve the news & information ecosystem around their big-picture issue.

This is a unique opportunity to develop skills in a collaborative, hands-on learning environment while forging connections in Chicago’s journalism world. City Bureau places an emphasis on racial equity and community engagement, and participants can expect to have critical conversations about the media industry through those lenses. Participants set their own personal goals for what skills and experiences they want to gain by the end of the 11 weeks. Most participants leave the program with a better understanding of the industry, improved skills and published clips (text or other types of stories) — in addition to becoming part of our City Bureau alumni network and our wider community.”

DEADLINE: May 26.
