Local newspaper has another job opening — this time for a reporter

This is from JournalismJobs.com:

“Description:

“Web-savvy reporter sought

“The Union, a six-day award-winning community newspaper in the Northern California foothills of the Sierra Nevada, seeks a web-savvy reporter to provide our highly engaged readership with locally relevant content that informs our community.

“Top candidates go beyond filing stories and photos for print by taking advantage of all the tools of today’s journalists. Skills in social media, photography and video are a must — all with a web-first mindset. We value the ability to turn around breaking news online, as well as the chops to dig into issue-oriented enterprise packages that help readers understand what the news means to them. We’re looking for self-starters who take initiative in a fast-paced and fun work environment that thrives on a team approach.

“Western Nevada County’s communities of Grass Valley and Nevada City are situated in the breathtaking beauty of the western slope of the Sierra Nevada. Outdoors activities and entertainment options are abundant here, locally and within short drives to Lake Tahoe, Reno, Sacramento and the Bay Area.

“Those interested in joining The Union team, and making the most of a great place to live, work and play should visit www.swiftcom.com/careers and apply to Job 1278.”

    No mention that the “web-first” content is behind a paywall! LOL.
