Join Our Team in Illinois: We’re Looking for an Engagement and Social Media Reporting Fellow

We’re adding to ProPublica Illinois’ engagement team and looking for someone to help us reach more people with our investigative journalism.

We are not currently accepting applications for this position.

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:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

Protect Independent Journalism

ProPublica is a nonprofit newsroom that produces nonpartisan, evidence-based journalism to expose injustice, corruption and wrongdoing. We were founded ten years ago to fill a growing hole in journalism: newsrooms were (and still are) shrinking, and legacy funding models failing. Deep-dive reporting like ours is slow and expensive, and investigative journalism is a luxury in many newsrooms today — but it remains as critical as ever to democracy and our civic life. A decade (and five Pulitzer Prizes) later, ProPublica has built the largest investigative newsroom in the country. Our work has spurred reform through legislation, at the voting booth, and inside our nation’s most important institutions.

This story you’ve just finished was funded by our readers and we hope it inspires you to make a gift to ProPublica so that we can publish more investigations like this one that holds people in power to account and produces real change.

Your donation will help us ensure that we can continue this critical work. From the Trump Administration, criminal justice, health care, immigration and so much more, we are busier than ever covering stories you won’t see anywhere else. Make your gift of any amount today and join the tens of thousands of ProPublicans across the country, standing up for the power of independent journalism to produce real, lasting change. Thank you.
