This is a great position for young or aspiring journalists who want to get some experience. We will mostly be investigating state government and politics in Wisconsin. This isn’t really a writing gig, so you shouldn’t expect to get those sorts of clips. But you will get some great journalism experience in a variety of areas, including investigation and data gathering and analysis.
We are a nonpartisan journalism organization, which means if you work for us, you give up your right to make partisan political statements on social media, do partisan political activism, etc. You’ll have to scrub your social media of any partisan political content before you start.
