Statehouse / Investigative Reporter – Vermont
Want to work for a thriving statewide weekly that cares about journalism, not clicks? Award-winning, locally owned Seven Days newspaper is seeking an experienced reporter to cover Vermont state government, politics and policy.
If you’re interested in transcribing press conferences and legislative committee meetings, this job is not for you. We’re looking for a journalist who will hold officials accountable, initiate investigations, demand public records, humanize public policy and shine a light on state government. You’ll cover Vermont’s four-month legislative session, its executive branch, congressional delegation, biennial elections and perhaps another presidential run by the state’s junior U.S. senator, Bernie Sanders. In the political off-season, you’ll scour the state for compelling stories outside the halls of power.
We expect clean copy, well-developed pitches, solid sourcing and a competitive zeal. You should be as comfortable filing a 400-word, breaking-news post for sevendaysvt.com as you are reporting out a 4,000-word, magazine-quality piece for the cover of our print edition. This is not an entry-level job, but we’re open to candidates with varied life experiences.
To apply, send your resume, three clips and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re applying from out of state, tell us how you’ll get up to speed in time for a legislative session that starts in January. If you’re applying from Vermont, tell us what Seven Days could be doing better.
Seven Days is an equal opportunity employer.
