They'll also share how they landed this coveted beat plus what keeps them at the top of their profession.

Culture and diversity reporter in Indiana's third-largest city: Evansville

https://us59.dayforcehcm.com/CandidatePortal/en-US/gannett/Posting/View/37100

Culture and Diversity Reporter The Evansville, Indiana, Courier & Press is seeking a reporter to explore "culture" in its various meanings - the ways people of different races, ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, and gender identities and preferences live and express themselves creatively in our region.Just as important as recognizing our differences is recognizing our citizens' commonalities.

Indiana University reporter in the college town of Bloomington

https://us59.dayforcehcm.com/CandidatePortal/en-US/gannett/Posting/View/37597

The Herald-Times in Bloomington, Indiana -- part of the USA TODAY Network -- is looking for a self-motivated reporter to cover Indiana University, one of the premier universities in the Midwest.

This is not your typical higher ed beat: IU accounts for half of the population of Bloomington and draws an audience from across Indiana and beyond.

The successful candidate will break news and do watchdog and trend reporting -- this isn't the gig for someone who's more comfortable writing off press releases and meetings. He or she should be adept at source development and have experience using public records, databases and other digital tools. We're also seeking a journalist who welcomes collaboration, both with other Bloomington reporters and with Gannett's higher education reporters across Indiana and the Midwest.
