Need a new job?

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is hiring.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, with a daily circulation nearing 300,000 and 500,000 on Sunday, seeks an experienced copy editor who can help us enhance the high standards we have for our business section.

We seek an innovative editor who can breathe life into potentially static material and who can recognize and implement possibilities for strong visual presentation. This person must work quickly and assimilate information from various sources into a tight presentation.

This editor will make stories conform to the style of the Post-Dispatch, and, to a large extent, the Associated Press Stylebook. Stories must be edited for pace, tone, fairness, completeness, context and factual errors. This person also will check graphics and read page proofs for accuracy, and suggest story ideas. Writing bright, readable headlines and editing cutlines are integral parts of the job.

Copy-editing or front-line editing experience, preferably at a daily newspaper, is required. Above all, this person must be a good manager of time, must be focused and must pay attention to detail.

To apply, please submit an overview of your experience to:
Cynthia Todd
Director, newsroom recruitment
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
900 N. Tucker Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63101

The application deadline is June 7, 2004.
Doesn't sound half-bad.
