The Registry is looking to hire a staff reporter to cover the commercial and residential real estate, architecture, development and stories related to the real estate industry in the greater Puget Sound area. The job is based in Seattle or in the surrounding geography. Previous journalistic experience is not essential, but candidates must be able to write well, generate original ideas and spot intriguing patterns in data and news.
We test for these things mostly by asking for a sample article, which applicants should send, with a resume to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please write up to 600 words. Your article could be on any subject, but you should try to mimic our rigorous journalistic style. (For some examples, please follow the links below.)
If you have prior journalism experience, please send samples of your work along with a resume to the same address.
This is a full-time role. Salary and bonus are negotiable, and they will be proportional to your experience and abilities. We provide benefits, a paid vacation, transportation expenses and a 401(k) plan.
