Raising awareness about important issues in the community is something that fills many of the employees at the Chronicle with pride. The newspaper recently spearheaded the San Francisco Homeless Project, which has brought together more than 80 media outlets across the city to cover stories on the causes of and solutions for homelessness.
Transparency is important to staff at the Chronicle. The company holds monthly events where the newspaper’s publisher updates the Management Team on what each department is working on. It’s a great way to bring the company together and make sure everyone is on the same page and can learn from each other.
“If someone wants to come in to interview here, I would tell them to be themselves, be proud of what they’ve done, and know that once they join the team, they’ll be able to learn even more and grow in the position that they’re applying for.”
“It’s been a very exciting time over the last two years. From a revenue standpoint—and how much we’ve been able to grow this product—I think it’s a very exciting time to be in the newspaper business.”
