The right candidate asks questions, follows a hunch and isn’t afraid to pitch good ideas. Applicants must have the self-discipline, drive and time management skills to juggle daily assignments, with the diligence and ambition to tackle thoughtful enterprise pieces.

This position provides an excellent opportunity to get solid training in a newsroom that values mentorship. The Sentinel publishes throughout the week on its various digital platforms, as well as in its six-day print newspaper. Reporters write for both print and the web; social media skills are a must.
