Job Opening at The Forward

The ideal candidate is a stylish writer who delights in breaking news; who will generate his or her own story ideas; know how to chase down a story and write it with ease on deadline, and can step back and conceptualize long-form stories. We’re looking for a team player who will thrive in a results-oriented, collaborative newsroom. A minimum of two years of experience on a daily newspaper or Web site is required. Send us your resume and three of your best clips. To be considered, you must include your salary requirements.” Deadline: January 16, 2009. See the full announcement and application instructions here.
