The Independent Record is seeking a photojournalist

The Independent Record is seeking an ambitious multimedia photojournalist to join its talented three-person photo staff in late May. The Independent Record, a division of Lee Enterprises, is a 16,000-circulation daily newspaper in Helena, Montana’s state capital, and a leader in journalism excellence and multimedia presentation online. Set in the heart of the northern Rockies along the spine of the Continental Divide, the paper caters to a diverse demographic, offering a vast array of opportunities to capture compelling images. The open position will first cover sports, with an abundance of spot news, general news and feature assignments. A sports powerhouse, we are home to multiple high school state champions and Carroll College, winner of five of the past six NAIA football national championships. Potential candidates should be skilled in sports, breaking news and feature photography. The ideal candidate also will be proficient in multimedia production, such as audio slideshows and videography, and committed to accuracy and working as a team to produce the best newspaper and Web site in the state. We prefer candidates with 1-2 years daily newspaper experience, but will consider recent photojournalism graduates with well-rounded portfolios. Must be proficient in Photoshop. Ability to use software programs like Soundslides, Adobe Premier and audio editing software is a plus. And when you’re not working, you will be afforded some of the finest outdoor recreation opportunities in the region for hiking, mountain biking, skiing and fly-fishing. The Independent Record and helenair.com, a repeated winner of the Lee President’s Award for Excellence in Journalism, offers an excellent pay plan and benefits package including medical, dental, vision, flexible spending, life insurance, employee stock purchasing program and a 401K. If you’re looking for an opportunity to work with top journalists and state-of-the-art technology in a progressive environment, apply online at helenair.com/employment.

I know Helena pretty well- got family there. Its quite cheap to live, has great outdoor opportunities, and believe it or not some great culture- symphony, museums etc- since its the state capitol. Close to national parks, etc. Would be a very interesting job location, and ive read the IR quite a bit- trust me, they need a good pj.

Just so you know, pretty sure this is closed. The link for employment doesn’t have the position listed anymore.
