Seeking a rising star
Idaho Falls, Idaho

Salary:  Negotiable


If you want to learn the skills needed to be successful in journalism, this is the place to start.


The Post Register of Idaho Falls, Idaho, is looking for a general assignment reporter. Applicants should have strong reporting skills and be well-versed in AP style. Most of all, they should have an absolute commitment to accuracy and the ability to distill complex topics into readable prose.


The paper, a regional daily with a circulation of 20,000, has a long history of teaching the trade and placing stars in larger markets. Post Register alumni have moved on to Sports Illustrated, the New York Times, the Associated Press, the Knoxville News Sentinel, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Arizona Republic, the Bakersfield Californian, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the Idaho Statesman.


In 2012, the Post Register beat out more than 100 papers to be named SPJ’s best paper in the Northwest with a circulation under 25,000.


Idaho Falls is eastern Idaho's regional hub for health care, banking, shopping and transportation with numerous cultural and outdoor opportunities. It's less than two hours from Yellowstone and the Tetons and minutes away from world-class fly-fishing, hiking, skiing and hunting. The region is frequently named on top 10 lists for quality of life.


Applicants should submit resume, cover letter, references and writing samples to Managing Editor Rob Thornberry via email at No calls, please.
