Description:

APG Media of Southern Minnesota is looking for two general assignment reporters but we won’t settle for the ordinary. We need someone who is equally comfortable writing an enterprise piece on budget trends, a feature on an interesting resident or a summary of a city council meeting. Successful applicants will have insatiable curiosity, a solid grasp of interviewing and writing techniques and a demonstrated knowledge of how multimedia enhances reporting.

Other requirements include:

- Four-year post-secondary degree in related field, or comparable practical experience in a work environment.

- Experience using social media

- Technical competence with Word and Web-based content management.

- Video and photography skills a plus, as is fluency in speaking Spanish.

Send a cover letter, resume and five clips of your best work to Regional Managing Editor Suzy Rook at editor@apgsomn.com
