Friday journo-jobs (Nov. 26/10)

November 26, 2010

I hope to make this a regular feature. I’ll feature the newest print job listings in British Columbia and selections from the wilds of Alberta (because they’re invited to this party too).

Two B.C. gigs on Gaulin this week and another at Black Press. There are more at Mediajobsearch, but I didn’t have the time to post them. Find them here.

The Province – Web editor

From Gaulin: “The Province is looking for an experienced journalist with strong multimedia skills for an immediate position working on the webdesk in the newsroom.” More…

This job is only a six-month gig, that includes weekends and nights. You need to be able to write a good story for both print and web, shoot video and create podcasts (Is this something we’ll be seeing more of from the tab?) Knowledge of sports and entertainment are assets. Closes Dec. 3. On an aside, what’s up with the randomly bold words in the ad?

Business in Vancouver – Layout editor

From Gaulin “Business in Vancouver newspaper is seeking a Layout Editor to oversee design and layout of editorial content within the weekly newspaper. The role will include posting daily content prepared by BIV’s newsroom on BIV’s website.” More…

The job title says it all. You need three years of laying out pages and knowledge of Indesign for this. Closes Dec. 3. Competition likely to be intense. Of note, BIV also recently posted a reporter job, the deadline for which was today.

The (Invermere) Valley Echo – Editors

From Black Press, Careers: “Black Press is currently recruiting for two full-time editors, one in the East and one in the West Kootenay….We are looking for talented individuals, who are able to understand the challenges and rewards of small community newspapers and mentor small newsrooms while meeting daily and weekly deadlines.” More…

Sounds like a pair of regional manager gigs. You have to “mentor” a number of small newsrooms. You’re going to be writing a bunch too. Closes Nov. 29.


The Wetaskiwin Times, a Sun Media paper, is looking for a multimedia reporter. Wetaskiwin is just south of Edmonton. Need a pulse and the ability to start immediately. Job originally posted Oct. 1.

The Hanna Herald, another Sun paper, needs a multimedia journalist (they seem classier, don’t they?). Hanna is 200 km northeast of Calgary. The guys in Nickelback are originally from there. You need a pulse and the ability to churn out copy quick. Job posted Sept. 30 for two months.

The Athabasca Advocate, a Great West paper, needs an editor. The paper is based an hour north of Edmonton. Paper’s expanding (!) to a three-person newsroom. You need experience. Job posted Sept. 30 for two months.

The Edmonton Journal, the Postmedia daily, has an opening for a reporter. Job is a year-long maternity leave position. Closes Dec. 8. You need a “proven ability” as a journalist and a bunch of abstract qualities.

Reminder: help complete a census of B.C. community newspapers by filling in the blanks of the Journo-lust Spreadsheet.
