Description:

The Elkhart Truth/elkharttruth.com has an immediate opening for a content editor.

 

Content editors work at the center of the newsroom, editing stories in real time to provide continuous community coverage to our readership throughout the day. They're focused on editing and delivering the right content in the right places to inform and engage members of our community. They must be able to write sharp, engaging headlines for digital audiences and be dedicated to fact-checking and following AP style. 

 

The content editor should be able to:

  • Occasionally aggregate important news and curate community content

Requirements:

  • The ability to work smart and fast in a daily newsroom environment while also managing multiple projects at once
  • Familiarity with SEO and writing for the web
  • An understanding and appreciation for how digital news and information is consumed
  • At least one year of journalism experience (or a really killer internship or two) is required

The Truth Publishing Company is a family-owned company in Elkhart, Ind., where we inform, educate and serve the community through local news and product innovation. Our newsroom produces a daily newspaper, elkharttruth.com, flavor574.com, three-hour daily radio show, quarterly digital magazine and a growing number of other digital publications.

Elkhart is located between Chicago, Indianapolis and Detroit, and is home to a rejuvenated downtown, a budding arts scene, craft breweries and the second-largest county fair (we're gunning for you, Orange County). We’re also within an hour’s drive of the beaches of Lake Michigan, multiple wineries, Warren Dunes State Park, tons of recreational activities and a football team named the Fighting Irish.

 

Send a resume, cover letter and link to digital portfolio to rmartin@elkharttruth.com.
