Seeking award-winning reporter

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.

In fact, that’s why we have the vacancy. One of our staffers just returned from our state press association winter meeting, awards in hand, and got snagged by a bigger daily up the road. But that’s OK. We’re proud when our staffers move on for all the right reasons. It gives us a sense of accomplishment as well.

While it's true we're not a major metro, we do have a hard-working staff that has surpassed the parameters established for a small daily. We are a family owned newspaper, which means we don’t have the layers of corporate executives to wade through.

This was another banner year for our small staff as we collected 25 press awards, earned first place in general excellence and brought home the coveted President’s Cup for Excellence, proudly on display in our front lobby. In the past several years, we have collected well more than 100 South Carolina Press Association awards, many of which have been for our investigative reporting, beat coverage and feature writing. Heck, we even have two first-place photo awards – without having a photographer on staff.

We want reporters who are as capable of generating excellent human interest features as they are at generating solid investigative and in-depth pieces. We want reporters with appetites who will learn the communities they cover and the delve head-first into their beats. We want reporters who are willing to tackle assignments they are given, but who are typically so busy with the enterprise work they have come up with that they struggle to fit in the “other stuff.

Candidates should be able to dig into local reporting on all levels and should not be afraid to ask the tough questions. After all, that's the kind of reporting that garners awards from your peers and accolades from the readers you serve.

The ideal candidate must understand local news matters and be able to convey that through stories, 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 highly competitive starting pay, exceeding the entry level of many larger dailies in our state.

To apply, send your resume, a cover letter and 5-10 clips (we're looking for enterprise, breaking news and well-written features) via regular mail or email to:
