Job Description

The Louisville Courier-Journal, a part of the USA TODAY Network, is looking for a high-energy, intense, tenacious reporter to join a new five-member investigative unit.
To be considered, you’ll need:
--  At least three years of reporting experience with a news organization such as a metro daily newspaper or web-based operation that prizes hard news and depth.
-- A record of producing complex investigations that get results.
-- Data analysis skills of your own plus ability to collaborate with our full-time database reporter.
-- Superior writing style.
-- Experience using social media and other digital tools to promote your work.
-- A document-driven mindset.
-- Experience in covering business and nonprofit organizations is a plus.
To excel in the job, you must be:
-- Creative and analytical. We only hire smart people.
-- Curious about everything and willing to challenge conventional wisdom on anything.
-- Resolute in getting the story, no matter the difficulty.
-- Willing to take risks and face down bullies, charlatans, and other real enemies of the people.
-- Versatile in exploring new ways to do great journalism.
Unconventional thinkers, characters and the adventurous are encouraged to apply. Life is too short to work with boring people.
The Courier-Journal is a 10-time Pulitzer Prize-winning news organization in a metro area known for its internationally recognized chefs and restaurants; vibrant music scene, including the Forecastle music festival; world-class bourbon distilleries; and Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. Though Louisville delivers a high quality of life, there’s enough waste, fraud, abuse and general corruption to make life interesting for a reporter like you. And because we’re part of the USA TODAY Network, you’ll have opportunities to do investigations with a national scope.
To apply, email a resume, cover letter and your three best writing samples to Investigations Editor James G. Wright at Put “investigative reporter application” in the subject field.
