    Inside Washington Publishers
    Print and online reporters
    Location: Washington, District of Columbia
    Description: Leading Washington news-gathering organization seeks reporters for newsletter and online positions. Our award-winning products -- 20 newsletters, nine online news services, and an array of subscription-based new-media products -- cover the federal policy process for professionals who need to know.
    Our newsletters -- Inside EPA, Inside U.S. Trade, Inside the Pentagon, among them -- are world renowned for their investigative reporting, taking our readers inside the places (Congress, the White House, the agencies) where the policies are shaped. Our online services (such as InsideEPA.com, InsideDefense.com and InsideHealthPolicy.com) provide the fastest link to that news and add other dimensions -- keeping readers up-to-date with breaking news, allowing access to important documents, providing a gateway to invaluable archives.
    We entertain responses from two types of professionals – those who want to join our team of investigative reporters and those whose current interest centers on new-media activities. Our editorial team of enterprise reporters has a worldwide reputation for accurate, in-depth, behind-the-scenes reporting, singularly focused on breaking the big story for policy professionals who depend on us for the “inside” word. Our robust new-media operation extends the value and scope of our content through blogs and e-mail products, suited for energetic but less-experienced reporters interested in finding the real news hidden in the massive amount of information that moves around official Washington. We welcome experience but do not require it.
    If you are looking for your next reporting challenge or your first reporting opportunity, contact us. You can share in the excitement of covering federal policymaking in this tumultuous period -- as a reconfigured Congress, less sympathetic to the Obama Administration, deals both with impact-filled policy issues and looks ahead to the 2012 elections. Start the process with an e-mail to jobs10@iwpnews.com.  Describe your interest, background and career goals. Alan Sosenko, Publisher.
    Inside Washington Publishers is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer.

    International Business Times (IBTimes)
    Reporter
    Location: New York, New York
    IBTimes seeks a reporter trained in journalism but fanatical about the topics that they cover. We are looking for someone who can write quickly -- someone who knows what is newsworthy and can garner an audience to themselves. The articles can be simple to long, but all must be accurate; even the blogs or articles that are just 200 words long.

    If you were to do tech for example, then you would need to beat companies like Engadget or Gizmodo in your fanatical coverage -- but one up them as we are not a blog, but a bona fide newspaper. If you did autos, then your competition would not just be autosections of other papers, but also autoblog.com, for instance.

    These are the sections:

    Technology (along the lines of Consumer Electronics, Gadgets)
    Sports
    Entertainment

    If you are fanatical about these; if you think about them even if you're not assigned to write about them; if you dream about them in your sleep, then email the address below with your cover letter, and resume.

    Considerations:
    This is a digital newsroom. You need to show you understand the Internet, and how to raise traffic; You will be judged on the traffic you produce. Some Live blogging will be necessary

    Email jobs@ibtimes.com  with the section interest in your Subject.
