The Washington Bureau is looking for a news assistant to answer phones, keep the daily Washington schedule, work with the social media team to promote Washington stories, fact-check copy on deadline, help reporters with logistics, research and legwork, and occasionally write stories.
This guild job is often more interesting than it sounds. You’ll work with great reporters and absorb a lot. You should be flexible, cheerful, adaptive, quick-thinking, level-headed in stressful situations and interested in the news.
Benefits and Perks:
The New York Times is committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce, one that reflects the varied global community we serve. Our journalism and the products we build in the service of that journalism greatly benefit from a range of perspectives, which can only come from diversity of all types, across our ranks, at all levels of the organization. Achieving true diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do. It is also the smart thing for our business. So we strongly encourage women, veterans, people with disabilities, people of color and gender nonconforming candidates to apply.
