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:
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.
Thank you for your interest in republishing this story. You are are free republish it so long as you do the following:
You have to credit us — ideally in the byline. We prefer “Author Name, ProPublica.” If your CMS does not allow you to do this, please include a line at the top of the story that reads: “This story was originally published by ProPublica.”
If you’re republishing online, you must link to our website, include all of the links from our story, and use our PixelPing tag.
You can’t edit our material, except to reflect relative changes in time, location and editorial style. (For example, “yesterday” can be changed to “last week,” and “Portland, Ore.” to “Portland” or “here.”)
You cannot republish our photographs or illustrations without specific permission (contact our PR Director, Minhee Cho, for more information).
It’s okay to put our stories on pages with ads, but not ads specifically sold against our stories. You can’t state or imply that donations to your organization support ProPublica’s work.
You can’t sell our material separately or syndicate it.
You can’t republish our material wholesale, or automatically; you need to select stories to be republished individually. (To inquire about syndication or licensing opportunities, contact our Director of Business Development, Celeste LeCompte.)
You can’t use our work to populate a web site designed to improve rankings on search engines, or solely to gain revenue from network-based advertisements.
We do not generally permit translation of our stories into another language.
Any web site our stories appear on must include a prominent and effective way to contact you.
If you share republished stories on social media, we’d appreciate being tagged in your posts. We have official accounts for ProPublica and ProPublica Illinois on both Twitter (@ProPublica and @ProPublicaIL) and Facebook.
