FULL-TIME REPORTER
The Snyder Daily News, six-day a week afternoon newspaper, is looking for a full-time reporter to cover a variety of assignments in Scurry County. Experience is preferred, but this could be a great starting spot for the right recent graduate. We’re looking for someone who can write news and features, as well as tell stories through photos. Perhaps the biggest beat will be covering our local schools. This position will also be responsible for building pages from time to time, so experience with InDesign and Photoshop is needed. We’re also looking for this reporter to take the lead with our social media effort. Some night and weekend work will be required. Benefits include health insurance package, vacation and mileage reimbursement – as well as good work environment where we make decisions about who, what and how we cover stories locally, not out of a corporate office. To apply, send a resume along with writing examples to: Ben Barkley by email at barkley@snyderdailynews, or by mail to P.O. Box 949, Snyder, TX 79550. No phone calls please. Equal opportunity employer.
