The Center for Michigan is hiring reporters for new Detroit project


The Center for Michigan, a nonpartisan, nonprofit media organization, is developing a new, collaborative multiplatform journalism and engagement project in and for Detroit. The Center for Michigan seeks reporters to produce high-impact journalism across multiple platforms that focuses on issues and challenges that Detroiters identify as crucial to their needs and desires.

Successful candidates will join a small, collaborative team to launch this project and deliver high-quality daily reporting on issues prioritized by Detroit’s residents.

Reporters will extend the reach of their reporting by serving and engaging with community members. With a small newsroom, reporters will be expected to generate and pursue story ideas, take photos and/or video, creatively use multiple platforms and assist others in the newsroom.

We seek early-career professionals with strong connections to the City of Detroit, its residents, institutions and communities. Among the qualifications we seek:

  • Excellent communication and organizational skills
  • Understanding of content creation on multiple digital platforms
  • Three to five years of experience in journalism
  • Editing experience and/or editing interest, in assistance to senior editors, is also appreciated

We are committed to diversity and building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and ages. And we are taking steps to meet that commitment. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including people of color, women, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities.
