    Wanted: Reporter

    Reporter wanted to cover news for print and Internet community in the metropolitan Chicago area.​ Candidate should be able to write stories with an iPad and take photos/​videos via a company-issued iPhone.​ Candidate will work for publication that has no home base for its circulation area.​ Organizational skills are paramount, as reporter must provide receipts as proof that they are on the job.​

    Job Duties:

    -Ability to interview subjects anytime, anywhere as there is no newsroom.​ Candidate should have a car, as it may be your office.​ Familiarity with locations offering free WiFi a plus

    -Must be willing to file stories from public locations such as coffee shops/​libraries that will tolerate your presence.​ Candidate must be comfortable using public restrooms

    -On call 24/​7 for possible breaking news for as low as $13/​hour

    - Position requires tact to interface with community members who complain about the publication's lack of content

    - Ability to deal with distant and hard-to-reach editors in a toxic labor environment is a plus


    -Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism or related field preferred.​


    Enough to know how to churn out multiple stories per day, but not enough experience to demand a reasonable salary.​

    Respond to:

    Chicago Newspaper Guild at loc71@​flash.​net Put Job Application in email subject line and include resume and cover letter about why you are a fit for this job.​


    Alas, it's satire, but is it accurate?
