The Record (Bergen County, NJ) has an immediate opening for a full-time reporter covering municipalities. We’re looking for someone who is a self-starter, is highly motivated and has a strong grasp of local news.
The successful candidate also must be able to write breaking news on deadline, break news off the beat and develop enterprise from it. Versatility and creativity are a must, as is the ability to work in a team-oriented environment. A minimum of two years of daily reporting experience, or equivalent, is required. Fluency in Spanish is a plus.
If interested, please send a resume, a cover letter and your five best clips to: Jim McGarvey, director of Assignment/Passaic-Morris, The Record, 1 Garret Mountain Plaza, PO Box 471, West Paterson, NJ 07424-0471.
