LNP Media Group, Inc.
Application Deadline: November 30, 2021
The Business Trends Reporter, specifically focusing on work and wages issues and working under the direction of the Work & Wellness Team Leader and deputy, is a proven, experienced journalist who specializes in writing about employment, hiring, job opportunities and wages in Lancaster County. This nimble reporter goes beyond press releases on reports to look at trends and impact. The Jobs/Working/Wages reporter focuses on the “how and why” for the lay reader – how does stagnation or slow rise in the unemployment rate impact Lancaster County? Why does a potential rise statewide in the minimum wage impact Lancaster County employers and workers – if at all? What are the county’s biggest employers, and what do they pay? This reporter breaks news when necessary but also delivers quick-hit reporting on data releases before moving on to explore and explain the context and impact.
Bachelor’s degree in journalism, English, mass communications or related field is required, with a proven knowledge and experience working with current media creation tools and contemporary newsroom systems, producing digital and print content, preferred.
