Wrapports/Sun-Times Media is looking for content editors who can coordinate and produce calendar and events content for our print and online properties throughout Chicagoland. The position will include community outreach as part of a new content model that combines traditional content production/curation with user-generated content for the production of local and regional print and online events calendars.

The position will be hands-on and will include production, editing and layout of this content. The position will also require some time editing and reviewing content submitted by the public. There also will be a need for ongoing product development and audience growth and engagement efforts.

Immediate responsibilities will include writing and editing short event briefs for a large-scale events project. You will work with our staff, event promoters and community leaders to create and maintain a comprehensive events calendar for the greater Chicago area. As with any new venture, the responsibilities may change as new opportunities present themselves.

Ideal candidates will have college degrees in journalism or communication, as well as intern or professional experience at newspapers or other print/online media. Familiarity and experience with online social media is a must; Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and web development skills are a plus. Candidates must be quick writers and be fluent in AP style.

If you're interested in this or other opportunities with Wrapports/Sun-Times Media, email your resume and references to with "Events" in the subject line. Not every emailed resume will receive a response. Wrapports/Sun-Times Media is an equal opportunity employer.
