Work Schedule: Full Time
Photojournalists: The Chicago Tribune is recruiting two-year residents in photojournalism. Our ideal applicant is an outstanding photographer with strong reporting skills, finely honed storytelling abilities, and a creator of images that inform, surprise and delight. The pace is demanding, and we expect creative, relevant photography under challenging circumstances. Residents get the same assignments as veteran photojournalists. The residency will concentrate on news photography, as well as features and sports, so an applicant’s portfolio should contain work of that nature, as well as photo stories and/or essays that demonstrate visual storytelling ability. Video expertise will be strongly considered when we select finalists. We look for talented, working daily newspaper journalists who have been in the business for some time and who seek the opportunity for professional growth in a large metropolitan market. Portfolios must be submitted on CDs or via websites. There is no limit on the number of photos you submit, but please be aware that we value tight editing. Because accurate, concise writing is a must, relevant caption material should accompany all work. Note: A portfolio based solely on art photography will not be considered. Interested candidates should apply to Director of Photography and Video Todd Panagopoulos firstname.lastname@example.org.

Posting a Job or Internship:
If you have a job or internship posting you want included in the J-JOBS database, please use the Job Submission Form. There is no charge.
We try to post jobs and internships as they come in, but in some cases we post them once a week on Sunday evening or Monday morning. Job postings are removed after about 30 days. Internship postings are generally considered permanent (we'll try and re-verify them every year). Some positions listed may already be filled.
No attempt has been made to verify any of the information in any of the job postings. J-JOBS is a free service to the journalism community by the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California at Berkeley.
