Inside Higher Ed, the leading source for news, commentary and analysis about higher education, seeks an enterprising, creative reporter to join its team of talented journalists as a general assignment reporter covering a wide range of pressing issues.
The reporter will cover everything from colleges’ efforts to bring students back to campus post-pandemic, academic labor, and other issues as they emerge.
Inside Higher Ed engages in authoritative journalism that provides a mix of news, enterprise and analysis. Our reporters mix beat reporting, analysis and creative approaches to telling stories; candidates should be able to juggle multiple articles at once, and should like to dig deeply and to learn. Candidates should have at least three years of full-time professional reporting experience; a background covering technology (for the technology position) and/or higher education is a plus.
Inside Higher Ed publishes breaking news, features, commentary, blogs and other content (including audio and video) each weekday, and has quickly established itself as an authoritative, independent voice for its 3.5 million unique monthly users and 180,000 daily e-mail subscribers.
Inside Higher Ed offers competitive pay, good benefits (including heavily subsidized health, dental and life insurance premiums), and 18 days' paid time off plus federal holidays.
