The Greenwood (S.C.) Index-Journal, a 12,000-circulation daily newspaper, wants to grow its base of talented, energetic and aggressive staff writers to join its award-winning team.
It's true that we're not a major metro, but we do have a hard-working staff that has surpassed the parameters established for a small daily, and we are poised to help you launch that career that gets you to that major metro. We are a family owned newspaper, which means we don’t have the layers of corporate executives to wade through.
In the past few years, our newspaper collected well more than 100 South Carolina Press Association awards, many of which have been for our investigative reporting, beat coverage and feature writing.
This position is primarily general news/features writing, operating on a Tuesday-Saturday schedule. While the emphasis will be on human interest, general news and features, there will be opportunities for hard news coverage.
The ideal candidate must understand local news matters and be able to convey that through stories and photos. Candidates also have to be digital savvy, employing social media in an effort to build and retain readers and viewers alike. Think digital first, get something even fresher for print.
If this sounds like a good fit for you, and you have the desire to help us continue our award-winning, public-serving publication, we want to hear from you. We offer a competitive starting pay, exceeding the entry level of many larger dailies in our state.
