We just posted a new job opening at our Center for Sustainable Journalism at Kennesaw State University. Here is the description:
The most unique job in journalism today:
We’re looking for a high energy journalist with an entrepreneurial spirit to run the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange (JJIE.org). This established online news operation is getting local and national attention for strong reporting about children and the law. The person we hire must be self motivated and determined to succeed, with a solid work ethic and great news judgment. You will work with a small team to gather news and information from a niche beat, report compelling stories in multi-media formats, and edit the work of other writers. Be ready to roll up your sleeves and network with news sources, attend events and conferences, and break original stories. This experimental journalism project has potential to expand and we need the right person to lead the way. Writing samples will be required.
You can apply for the job here, look for the heading Communication Professional III.
It really is a great job and this experiment in niche journalism is growing rapidly. We now have 10,000 unique visitors a month, with about 1,000 page views a day. Interested in helping it grow more and expand beyond Georgia, then apply now.
