Description:

We're looking for a reporter to take on a variety of news beats as well as general assignment stories. Need someone who is as comfortable writing a great human interest feature as covering a city council meeting, who wants to be first with the story and tell it better than anyone else can.

Prefer candidates with some reporting experience. Photography skills are a plus. We are a twice-weekly community newspaper in a very competitive market served by multiple papers. We want to have important stories in print and online before the competition knows they exist.

We need someone who can generate a meaningful volume of copy to which readers can relate and develop sources necessary for in-depth coverage. Geographic proximity and knowledge of the area is a plus. Great location near both Atlanta and Athens.

Page design/pagination skills would separate you from the pack and move you to the top of the list to be interviewed.

Opportunities for advancement to larger papers within the newspaper group, including dailies. E-mail resume to debbie@barrowcountynews.com
