News Reporter The Journal, Seneca 8/29/17

The Journal, an award-winning daily nestled in the foothills of Upstate South Carolina, is seeking a dynamic journalist to add to our newsroom staff. Versatility is required of our reporters, as they are asked to cover everything from local festivals and entertainment to government and crime. As such, it could be the perfect training ground for an eager up-and-comer looking to develop their chops or for an experienced newshound looking to get back to their roots in community journalism.

Unlike some media outlets, our focus is still on being a newspaper first and foremost — that means an emphasis on our print edition and local coverage that readers can’t get anywhere else. This has allowed The Journal to continue growing both in terms of staff and circulation. And as a family-owned newspaper, we haven’t dealt with the layoffs and mergers that seem to be a regular occurrence with corporate publications.

Recent college graduates hoping to get their foot in the door or experienced journalists seeking to take the next step in their career are encouraged to apply. We have experienced editors and reporters who can show you the ropes, and we have no intention of waiting around to make this hire if we find the right candidate. We’re willing to take a chance on someone with the right combination of talent, charisma and enthusiasm.

This is a full-time, salaried position with most of the benefits (health insurance, paid vacation, etc.) one would expect. As a five-day daily that publishes Tuesday through Saturday, most — though not all — of your weekends are your own. That’s a perk you’re not likely to find in many gigs similar to this one.

The Journal has been awarded first and second place, respectively, the last two years in General Excellence among dailies our size by the S.C. Press Association despite being one of — if not the — smallest newspapers in our division. We have a tight-knit newsroom staff that works hard to measure up with the best publications around. If that sounds like a team you’d like to join, send a cover letter (as the body of an email is fine), resume and three writing samples to News Editor Steven Bradley at newsed@upstatetoday.com.

The Post and Courier’s digital team works across the newsroom to ensure all steps are taken for digital success. The team utilizes its expertise by delivering value to readers, who expect to find our journalism easily where, when and how they want it. The team also collaborates across the company to build newsroom-related products and services that meet the goals of the organization.
All digital team roles blend traditional editorial duties with digital storytelling, audience development, and marketing and social strategies. Our core duties focus on quality journalism, understanding existing and new audiences, reader engagement and revenue growth.
Who are we? The Post and Courier is one of the few independent, family-owned newspapers left in the United States. Our local owners have deep roots in the community and care deeply about this newspaper and its reputation.
Better yet, that ownership translates into a growing newspaper that has added staff and is expanding its Sunday print distribution. We’ve also doubled the size of our state capital bureau, added a Washington correspondent to cover national affairs and are beefing up our team further with this position and several new digital hires. 
On the digital side, we’re aggressively pushing every digital boundary you can imagine. No idea is too crazy or too big.  Oh, yeah, did we mention you’d be living minutes from the beach and in a city routinely ranked as one of the best places in the world to visit or live? There’s that, too.

The Post and Courier is an equal opportunity employer and a drug-free workplace.
