The successful candidate will have the ability to focus on everything from hard-edged investigative stories to features about the transportation system and those who use it on a daily basis. The ideal candidate will be a detail-oriented
individual who has the ability to develop sources, is skilled with database searches and records, and can manage deep probes into complicated subjects. This position needs a strong writer who can produce clean, well-organized copy on deadline.
The candidate must also be adept at various forms of storytelling, including producing and editing video and podcasts. The person applying for this job shouldn't be afraid to experiment with new and innovative ways to tell stories. And the person must be willing to engage often with the public so they become known as the go-to for transportation information in New Jersey.
Since this is a competitive and breaking news beat, speed in storytelling is a must.

The candidate must produce daily stories while also working on longer-term enterprise and investigative stories.
