APG Media of Southern Minnesota is looking for two general assignment reporters — one in Northfield and one in Owatonna — but we won’t settle for the ordinary. We need reporters who are 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.
