Description:

Are you a perfectionist committed to channeling your superpower for good by helping others improve?

The Kerrville Daily Times wants you as its next copy editor.

We're seeking an enthusiastic, experienced copy editor to contribute to the design of the six-day-a-week newspaper while assisting with coordination and editing of specialty publications. 

Preference will be given to experienced editors with strengths spotting holes in stories and who enjoy getting to interact with reporters. We're looking for an editor who doesn't just fix immediate problems but finds ways to avoid similar mistakes in the future.

The ideal candidate is organized, detail oriented and yet flexible and can adapt under pressure. Although primary duties will involve page layout and copy editing, our ideal candidate is a great communicator with leadership potential who can occasionally be called on to coordinate or lead projects.

Knowledge of AP style and experience using InDesign and Photoshop are essential. An interest in digital storytelling and an understanding of SEO and social media are a plus. 

Although we prefer experienced editors with a background in news, we will consider recent college graduates or non-news graphic designers if the candidate brings strong writing skills, a natural curiosity, and a positive, can-do and helpful attitude. 

We are in a team-building phase and are protective of our team and culture, so grumpy, finger-pointers, or complainers need not apply. 

We value character over skill and are eager to recruit those who are ready to grow and make a positive impact on their workplace and community.

To apply, send your resume and writing and design clips to Publisher Carlina Villalpando at carlina.villalpando@dailytimes.com.
