Are you a politics junkie who always knows when there’s news out of Hillary Clinton’s campaign office? Do you obsessively watch the Sunday morning political talk shows? Did you fall off your chair when Donald Trump officially announced his run for the presidency?
If so, you may be the perfect Political News Reporter for Business Insider.
The Political News Reporter is responsible for monitoring US political events and developments, and reporting on them in real time across social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, as well as on our website. He or she is always thinking up an angle on the news that everyone else has missed — the real story behind the superficial news.
If Jeb Bush makes a campaign speech, the Political News Reporter will share live updates with readers. If there’s a major congressional vote, he or she will be able to write about it in a way that’s relatable and compelling. If a politician sends an embarrassing tweet, he or she will be the first to see it.
The ideal Political News Reporter has:
- Excellent news judgment
- A knack for telling stories and sharing political news in a smart, accessible way
- The ability to write and edit quickly and accurately
- An innate obsession with getting faves on Twitter and likes on Instagram and Facebook
- One to two years of experience covering politics for a digital publication
