They’re hiring – local job openings


The Malheur Enterprise has an opening for a full-time general assignment reporter to be part of one of Oregon’s top news teams. You’ll learn more about how to perform real reporting, to really dig in, to show courage in the face of challenges than you will in most of today’s newsrooms.

This is the place for an early stage journalist to develop skills under close mentorship under one of the country’s top investigative reporters and innovating editors. Join a team with a national reputation for local news and help us demonstrate community news is as much about enterprise and investigative reporting as it is rodeo queens and high school graduations. We are advancing work on solutions journalism and devising ways to better serve our large Latino population. We deliver stories that set the community agenda. We’re determined to be viewed as a source of trusted, accurate news. Those aren’t platitudes with us. This reporter will be the lead on education and city news, help with sports, and participate in projects.

What do you need to qualify? Energy and ambition rank high. Spanish, spoken and written, would be a huge plus. We are eager to add diversity to our team. You’ll work directly under the direction of Les Zaitz, editor/publisher. As for living circumstances, you’ll be about an hour from Boise, a dynamic growing city with lots of life, and near some of the most spectacular and remote rivers and canyonlands anywhere.

Applicants should first research Malheur County and the Malheur Enterprise (to see what’s been accomplished). Give a listen to the piece NPR’s “Morning Edition” did on the Enterprise: https://www.npr.org/2018/11/26/670058419/digging-deep-into-local-news-a-small-newspaper-in-rural-oregon-is-thriving

Send your resume, a cover letter, and three recent stories that show your abilities. Your letter should demonstrate you did your homework as outlined above, indicating your takeaways about our community and our newsroom. If you want to be part of a top team, learn great skills, and prepare for your next job, there is no better job in the U.S. Send your application by email to [email protected]
