The Gazette is a great training ground for any journalistic career; our reporters have gone on to jobs at major media outlets. Degree in journalism or the liberal arts is required; master’s degree preferred. Candidates with photography, social media skills and a familiarity with Martha’s Vineyard are encouraged to apply.
