General Assignment Reporter

General Assignment Reporter

APG Media of Southern Minnesota is looking for a general assignment reporter covering Faribault, Minnesota, but we won’t settle for the ordinary. We need a reporter 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. The successful applicant 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.

Please send cover letter, resume and five clips of your best work to Regional Editor Suzy Rook. srook@faribault.com
