Description:

 

We are doing some exciting, cutting-edge work at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, and we are committed in these changing times to continue giving our readers balanced, objective coverage of the day’s news. The copy desk and design desk are vital parts of our effort to continue traditional journalism in a nontraditional way. We are accepting applications for a copy editor/page designer on our night news copy desk in Little Rock. To be considered, an applicant should have a college degree in journalism and relevant experience. The journalist we’re seeking knows grammar and AP style, and can write accurate, attention-grabbing headlines. Applicants brought in for interviews should expect to take a copy-editing test. Experience using Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop is a plus. We are looking for a good-natured co-worker who loves newspapers as much as we do, and who will work and learn along with us. We’re excited to be in the newspaper business at this time in history. In our newsroom, we welcome new hires with cookies from a local bakery, and things only get sweeter from there. To apply, please email cover letters and resumes to News Editor Sandra Tyler — styler@adgnewsroom.com. Phone: (501) 378-3886.
