Nightside News Clerk REQ#4752

at The Villages Media Management

The Villages Daily Sun, America's fastest growing daily newspaper, is seeking a news clerk to provide support for its nightside newsroom staff.

Successful candidates should be comfortable handling a variety of duties including: data entry of various community listings, rewrite press releases into the newspaper's style and compile basic news briefs; scan and or/photocopy documents, correspondence and photos; handle some basic paginatoin of assigned features; support the administrative assistants with tasks such as coordinating events, preparing content entries and organizing and maintaining filing systems; and take photographs.

The Daily Sun believes in the future of print and is defying national trends of declining circulation numbers and downsizing staff. We cater to a senior population, but also cover the story of explosive growth in several surrounding counties. We're a 90-mile drive to the beach, the theme parks and the historic neighborhoods of Gainesville and St. Augustine. 

Applicants should have a high school diploma or GED with two years related experience, as well as reliable transportation. In addition to being a fast and accurate typist (60 wpm preferred), applicants should possess basic writing, proofreading and editing skills. Candidates must have excellent computer skills, especially working in a MicroSoft Office environment. Familiarity with AP style preferred. Florida residents familiar with the area are a plus. 

Due to the typically high volume of applications we normally receive, we'll be unable to keep individual candidates constantly updated on our hiring process or conduct preliminary interviews at the applicant's request.
