We’re adding to ProPublica Illinois’ engagement team and looking for someone to help us reach more people with our investigative journalism.
Working closely with Engagement Reporter Logan Jaffe, you’ll scheme ways to get ProPublica Illinois’ investigative journalism in front of people in two key ways:
You will help grow ProPublica’s Illinois’ audience, particularly via social media. That means you will be doing smart social journalism — including distribution, social-first content creation and social strategy around project launches.
You will work on investigative projects in collaboration with ProPublica Illinois reporters throughout the full life-cycle of projects, beginning with story conception. You’ll help identify what communities and audiences we need to reach, how we can reach them and the best ways to involve them in our reporting. Then, once a story publishes, you’ll think of ways to share our reporting with them to maximize the impact of our journalism.
