General Assignment Reporter

Shelton-Mason County Journal
The Shelton-Mason County Journal in Shelton, Washington, has an opening for a full-time general assignment reporter. We are a family-owned weekly newspaper located at the foot of the picturesque Olympic Mountains on Puget Sound.

The ideal candidate will possess strong writing and photography skills, and feel comfortable covering a variety of beats, including schools, government and community news. We value clarity, accuracy, creative thinking, enterprise and story telling. Working knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite is a plus.

You’ll join a hard-working, award-winning news staff who was named the best weekly newspaper in the state for 2015. You'll be among the best reporters, photographers and designers in the state, and will be responsible for covering all aspects of Mason County. One moment you might be covering a city commission meeting; the next minute you might be taking photos at a school play.

But what good is work if there’s nothing to do for fun? Luckily, we’re located just minutes away from hiking, biking, fishing, boating and other recreational opportunities. We’re less than a half hour away from the state capital. We’re about 90 minutes from the Pacific Ocean and a ferry ride away from downtown Seattle.

The Journal is the newspaper of record for Mason County’s 60,000 residents. We have a rich history — we’re older than the state of Washington.

We offer a competitive salary with opportunities for advancement and training, paid time off, and a health club membership. Northwest candidates encouraged.
