We are seeking an aggressive, skilled reporter with a passion for watchdog journalism to cover Albemarle County government and schools in beautiful Central Virginia. We want a journalist who understands the basics of budgeting, school operations and open government. We want a journalist who will ask tough questions, report with a skeptical eye and then produce strong, well-written stories that fill holes rather than leave them. We want a journalist who's committed to the craft and ready to respond to high expectations. We want a journalist who knows how to win. Charlottesville is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains and home to the University of Virginia with attractions ranging from Monticello, home of Thomas Jefferson, to a rich night life, featuring such attractions as the locally based Dave Matthews Band along with U2 and a host of local artists. If you're a serious journalist ready to push yourself and us toward greatness, we want to hear from you. This is not a job for those who've always wanted to try newspapers. It is a job for people who see journalism as a calling. Send a cover letter, resume and three samples of your best work to Managing Editor Lee Wolverton at or The Daily Progress, 685 West Rio Road, Charlottesville, VA 22901. Subject lines in emails should read, "County Government Reporter."
