COMMUNITY/ENTERPRISE REPORTER -- We have an immediate opening for an experienced, ambitious reporter who wants to help us demonstrate community news is as much about enterprise and investigative reporting as it is rodeo queens and high school graduations. We're building a reputation for turning a weekly newspaper in rural eastern Oregon into a model for how powerful local news can mean business success. This is a fulltime job that is a blend of community, enterprise, and sports. We aren't interested much in refrigerator news. We're interested in stories that set the community agenda. We're interested in being a source of trusted, respected news. You'll work with an editor who has significant daily and weekly professional experience in investigative reporting. You'll join a new team that in just the second year of its transformation has won national awards. 

What do you need to qualify? Energy and ambition rank high. Our editor can sharpen just about any journalistic skill you have or build ones you don't have. You need two years professional experience (though for the right candidate, we'll look the other way). You need to show us how you worked a beat in a way that instead of relying on meetings relied on source development. We want to break news before a meeting happens. You need to show an ability to find out the "why" behind significant ocal stories. Clean writing is vital. Photo skills an asset, as would be video, social media skills. Spanish would be a huge plus.

This is a job for someone who wants to help change journalism and help change the community. This is a job for someone eager to be among the best and learn from the best. Don't let our size fool you. Do your research, then apply.
