Full Time
FOX News Channel, a fast-paced 24-hour television news operation, is seeking an enthusiastic researcher with legal background for its New York City information center.

We’re specifically looking for someone with vast and varied legal knowledge who may be looking for an exciting and rewarding alternative to practicing law.

If your love for research is equaled only by your interest in news, we want to hear from you. Candidates must be willing and able to work on a flexible schedule -- including evenings, overnights, and weekend shifts.

Only candidates with experience using several online databases (Lexis-Nexis, Factiva, Accurint, etc.) and the Internet for research purposes will be considered.

Qualified individuals must be able to handle multiple and varied research assignments, in fields ranging from politics to business to entertainment. This could involve confirming facts for a story, putting together a briefing book for reporters, finding contacts for guests, and many other activities.

Candidates should have a nose for retrieving and analyzing information, be able to meet tight deadlines, and work well in a team atmosphere. They must be able to work in an extremely fast-paced environment.

Excellent communication skills are also required. Attention to detail is a must. A demonstrable knowledge of current events is key.

A bachelor's degree is required and an advanced degree is a plus.

Fox News Channel is an EOE.
