The Perry Chief, a weekly community newspaper in Perry, Iowa, is looking for a talented, personable reporter who likes to write about everything. 

The successful candidate will serve as an all-around reporter in this growing, diverse community in central Iowa, just a half hour from Des Moines. The individual will be expected to also shoot photos and video as well as posting to social media. The successful candidate will work closely with the team of the award winning Dallas County News, which is published out of the same office in downtown Perry.

The Perry Chief is part of the GateHouse Iowa family, a group of five other weekly newspapers and one daily in central Iowa. We are a dedicated team leading the way in innovation in the industry, and we’re always looking for new ways to tell the stories that affect the people living in our communities.

While we are within an easy drive to the Des Moines area, we are a locally driven newspaper with a focus on local news and sports.  Our newspaper is published weekly, however, we believe in a daily presence on our website and social media, giving our readers daily updates with the news they need to know.

The ideal candidate will have at least one to two years of experience, but talented new graduates are encouraged to apply. InDesign experience will be helpful.

Qualified applicants should send a resume, cover letter and up to five writing samples to Lisa Widick at lwidick@theperrychief.com

When applying, mention you saw this opening listed at JournalismJobs.com.
