Description:

If journalism excellence awards are important to you, a position open at the Bryan-College Station Eagle will provide plenty of opportunities for such recognition. Of course, investigative stories, captivating features and breaking news aren't just handed out. You'll have to earn it.

 We're looking for a writer with at least one year of professional reporting experience who can stay ahead of competitors covering issues in the hometown of Texas A&M — one of the largest public colleges in the country. Government reporting experience a plus, as beat includes covering the legislature, along with city government. Critical thinking skills are a must whether the reporter is at a board of regents meeting, digging through hundreds of documents or covering a plane crash via social media; the expectations are high.

The position requires an organized person who takes initiative, is tenacious and has a passion for journalism in the digital age. We hope references tell us that the reporter has excellent source development skills and is at ease in most any setting.

The Eagle: We are a small daily newspaper (72,000 readership) that likes to think like a large newspaper, and are considered somewhat of a boot camp for journalists who have aspirations to move on to a metro. Experienced editors work closely with staff. To see what some of our best work has been in recent years, go here: www.txapme.com/awards.

We highly value our community and our employees, who are compensated with a good benefits package (health insurance/401K) and competitive pay. Send cover letter, clips and resume to Kelly Brown, editor, 1729 Briarcrest Drive, Bryan, 77802 or e- mail her at kelly.brown@theeagle.com. No phone calls please.
