What do you need to qualify? Energy and ambition rank high. Spanish, spoken and written, would be a huge plus. We are eager to add diversity to our team. Clean writing is vital. Photo skills an asset. You'll work directly under the direction of Les Zaitz, editor/publisher, who is a two-time Pulitzer finalist with a long history as a top investigative reporter. As for living circumstances, you'll be about an hour from Boise, a dynamic growing city with lots of life, and near some of the most spectacular and remote rivers and canyonlands anywhere.
This is a job for someone eager to be among the best and learn from the best. Don't let our size fool you. Applicants should first research Malheur County, the Malheur Enterprise (to see what's been accomplished) and Zaitz (to see what you might learn.) Give a listen to the piece NPR's "Morning Edition" did on the Enterprise: https://www.npr.org/2018/11/26/670058419/digging-deep-into-local-news-a-small-newspaper-in-rural-oregon-is-thriving
Send your resume, a cover letter, and three recent stories that show your abilities. Your letter should demonstrate you did your homework as outlined above, indicating your takeaways about our community and our newsroom. If you want to be part of a top team, learn great skills, and prepare for your next job, there is no better job in the U.S.
