Entry-level reporter job @ Chattanooga Times Free Press

The Chattanooga Times Free Press, a 73,000-circulation daily newspaper in Tennessee, has an opening for a paid six-month internship starting July 1.

This is not the kind of internship where you fact-check other people’s work or make copies. You’ll be a full-time reporter working on the news staff and covering breaking news as well as some news features. If you’re good, you’ll have a shot at getting your stories on the front page.

The ideal candidate is a self-starter with strong reporting and writing skills. You must be able to cover breaking news as well as turn features and be comfortable writing and updating Web stories throughout the day. You must be competitive and able to work on a team of reporters.
This is a great way for recent college graduates to get experience in a fast-paced newsroom at a newspaper where circulation is growing and Web traffic is skyrocketing. Other internships and experience at a college newspaper are a plus.

Send your resume, a cover letter and five writing samples to Managing Editor Alison Gerber at agerber@timesfreepress.com.
