Staff Writer

Worcester Business Journal is seeking a full-time reporter to help lead coverage of the Central Massachusetts business community.

At WBJ, which is one of the last independently owned newsrooms in New England, we take tremendous pride in the journalism we produce and the publications we create, to the acclaim of international organizations that count WBJ as one of the best business journals in the country. We are an extremely collaborative newsroom that pushes hard to produce the highest quality news and analysis, yet recognizes journalists are whole people, too, who may need to take time in the middle of the day to address issues in their personal lives. The CEO works right down the hall, and WBJ’s parent company keeps all employees well-informed of the happenings at all levels of the business.

Our small, but mighty, newsroom staff provides breaking news and subject matter expertise for key industries in the Central Massachusetts economy. WBJ maintains a constantly updated website, produces eight e-newsletters, and publishes a bimonthly print magazine full of news and analysis. This new hire would contribute to all of these products, in cooperation and collaboration with the other members of the newsroom.

Applicants for this position should have a strong foundation in journalism, with multiple years of experience in an established newsroom. Familiarity with business-to-business journalism is helpful, but not required. The person eventually hired for this position must be adept and nimble, work well with a team, be a multitasker, and have a drive to be the best at what they do.

While WBJ offers a flexible schedule and hybrid/remote work options, local journalism is best done in person by professionals in the market, and the expectation for this position is that you will spend most of your time in Central Massachusetts, meeting people, understanding your beats, and learning the lay of the land.

Relief News/Op-ed Editors Needed

The Commons, an award-winning nonprofit community newsroom in Brattleboro, Vermont, is looking for occasional freelance backup editing assistance to help shape copy from a variety of contributors of varying experience and skills into clean, readable, lively prose that retains the writer’s voice.

We’re looking for seasoned, confident news editors who love the challenge of editing for clarity, brevity, style, and accuracy and who can do so rapidly and with good humor, humility, patience, pride in craft, and conscientious knowledge of fast-changing language around drugs, crime, gender, race, mental health, and other topics to be described and discussed with care in our pages.

Assignments can range from slashing a grotesquely overwritten press release into a snappy news brief to shepherding a magazine-quality longform cover story into print. We might also ask for your help in editing pieces for Voices, our dedicated editorial/op-ed section, where preservation of a writer’s voice is a top priority.

Turnaround needs can vary. Our normal production cycle runs from Saturday to Tuesday, with the files going to press and the content going live early Wednesday morning.

Remote work is fine, though it’s certainly helpful if you already know Vermont. We’d love to consider applicants who are not old, white, and male.

Visit to see what we do. To apply, send a note along with a before-and-after edited news story (a document with tracked changes is welcome) and your hourly rate to Jeff Potter, editor, at
