Company: Casper Star Tribune
Seeking Business Journalist
Job Status:  Full-time
Ad Expires: 
March 25, 2013
Job ID: 1472399


The Casper Star-Tribune, the newspaper of record for Wyoming, seeks a business journalist to document the businesses, people and issues that fill the wide open spaces of our state.

 Adventurous souls take note: There are few wild places left in the United States. And they are here. Don’t be surprised if your first months on the job find you standing on an oil rig, leaning over a boot maker, poking into the underbelly of a swanky Jackson Hole hotel or exploring a boom town gone bust.

 Join us. Your best work will be rewarded with strong, collaborative photography and print design. Online, you will engage with readers and take the lead in discussions about what you write.

 The ideal candidate will have a bachelor’s degree, 1-3 years of daily newspaper experience including some business coverage and database/spreadsheet journalism knowledge, but recent graduates with strong clips and internships under their belts will be considered.

 You will work closely with the Star-Tribune’s energy beat reporter on coverage priorities and stories. Our newsroom prides itself on its teamwork, but your ability to work independently is key given our large coverage area. We value courage, hard work and a sense of humor.

 The ability to work flexible hours including nights, weekends and holidays is required, along with occasional overnight travel. Newsroom employees must have reliable transportation. We’ll give you a computer, a pen, some paper and all the good stories you can handle.

 Casper, population 55,000, is located in central Wyoming four hours north of Denver and five hours from Yellowstone National Park. Recreational and cultural opportunities abound. The newspaper offers a competitive starting salary and benefits package including health insurance, paid holidays and vacation, and 401(k).

 Applicants should log into Upload cover leter, resume, and 3-6 clips.

 The Casper Star-Tribune and parent company Lee Enterprises are Equal Opportunity Employers and maintain a drug-free workplace.
