Salary$25,000 to $30,000

This is more than a job. It's a way of life.
Are you curious, creative, courageous, principled and relentless when confronted by a challenging task, person or situation? Can you look past the common and see a unique story or photograph? Can you serve your community as a storyteller and a watchdog?

If yes, you might be the next Charles City Press reporter. We are looking for the right person to fill this key role to do a variety of reporting and photography, including news and features and maybe even some sports. The job also involves pagination of newspaper pages, publishing on the web and in social media and copy editing — this is a newsroom for people who know things change and news happens when it happens. The position will include night and weekend work.

You will have the opportunity to explore the wide spectrum of journalism from alternative story forms to multi-platform reporting, to column writing and possibly being editor of your own feature section. We want people who will challenge themselves and grow with us.

Send a letter describing how you are right for this newspaper, five samples of published writing and five samples of your photography, to Editor Bob Steenson at, or mail them to The Charles City Press, 801 Riverside Drive, Charles City IA 50616.
