The Dawson Creek Mirror is looking for a full-time reporter/photographer.
The Mirror is appealing to prospective journalists who are hard workers, writers, and excited at the prospect of producing both research-based features and day-to-day coverage with a direct focus on Dawson Creek and the South Peace region of Northeast B.C.
Candidates should have at least two years of journalism experience, and be eager to experiment with existing forms of community newsgathering through the written word, social media, photography, video, and other mediums.
Beginning immediately, the reporter will work with a paper that reflects both their skills and areas of interest to report, and write stories under the guidance of the manager editor. Some stories will be assigned while successful candidates will be free to create their own leads and beats. The goal is to stretch the candidate's journalism with the guidance of an office that has earned more than 25 BCYCNA, AWNA, MCNA, and CCNA awards.
Proficient use of a camera, reliable vehicle, and valid driver's licence are a must. Candidates must be willing to relocate and live in Dawson Creek.
Closing date for applications: August 31, 2017.
