Reporter, Newton, Iowa
The Newton Daily News, a five-day daily newspaper located in Newton, Iowa, is seeking a general assignment reporter to join its award-winning staff. Our newspaper is on the move to a 21st century digital-first mindset, which will provide you with the opportunity to use new technologies and to do a little bit of everything: hard news and features, columns, page design, photography and videography.
In addition to reporting for the daily paper, this position will also be a regular contributor to our niche publications and web-exclusive products.
Ideal candidates should have a bachelor’s degree in journalism or a related field, but we really want to know what you’re able to do in a modern newsroom. Newspaper experience is a plus, but we’re willing to hire the right candidate out of school.
A firm grasp of AP style and experience with pagination (we use InDesign) and video- and photo-editing software is vital.
Send resume, cover letter and 3-4 of your best clips to: NDN Editor Bob Eschliman at firstname.lastname@example.org or via mail to 200 First Ave. E. Newton, Iowa, 50208.
