Friday journo-jobs (Dec. 3/10)

December 3, 2010

Burnaby Now/New West News – reporter/paginator

From editor Pat Tracy‘s blog comes this: “This position is for a talented self-starter with the ability to discover news on a neighbourhood level.”  This is a full-time, four-days-a-week position for a year. Starts within the next two months. You need to be able to use social media, paginate and proof pages, and report. Closes Dec. 15. Read the full thing here.

Monday Magazine – editor

Not strictly a newspaper job, but may fit the right resume, so long as it’s long enough.

From Gaulin: “You must have a solid journalistic track record and direct newspaper or magazine experience, be an excellent wordsmith, a strong personality, an idea generator, an organizational demon and be able to effectively communicate with both the top brass and the person on the street.” More…

While many may be ruled out by an inability to verbally “communicate with top brass” without the use of expletives, there may be someone out there. You need a cover letter, clippings, references, bulleted list of story ideas and a 400-word editorial to apply. Deadline is Dec. 6.


The Whitecourt Star needs an editor. This paper is always hiring, probably because it’s located in one of the lousiest small towns in Canada. No offence to Whitecourt…ers(?) You need to be able to write, take photos, edit and manage a three-person newsroom. Management experience helpful but not necessary. Deadline is Dec. 4.
