Want to be my boss?

August 14th, 2007

The Potomac News and the Manassas Journal Messenger, two small dailies located about 30 miles outside Washington, D.C., need a features editor to drive primarily local lifestyle content of a joint features sections. This person is responsible for the planning, execution and design of 5 features sections a week with a staff of 1 reporter, a page designer and several freelancers. The ideal candidate will have at least 2 years in the newspaper business and a vision of how to cover trends and entertainment for younger readers and to develop innovative local content. Design skills are a plus; knowledge of Quark and Photoshop are helpful, but knowing how to lead others to produce lively local features content is essential.

  1. I could apply for this. 😛

  2. You could– and I’d tell the big boss to hire you… although I can’t imagine you and John living in Prince William County.
