The Daily Chronicle in DeKalb, Ill., is looking for a copy editor who understands that copy editing now includes print and web responsibilities.
We are a 9,000-circulation, six-day-a-week newspaper located just over an hour outside of Chicago, but we have the ambition and drive of a bigger suburban daily.
We expect our copy editors to: make stories better by identifying structural or factual errors in copy, write headlines that engage the reader, design clean and easy-to-navigate pages, and possess solid news judgment for print and the web.
Candidates must have a thorough understanding of AP style, be willing to work nights and weekends, and demonstrate the ability to excel on deadline. Previous InDesign experience is a plus.
The Daily Chronicle is a part of Shaw Suburban Media.
Applicants should send a résumé, cover letter, three design samples and three examples of sound copy editing to:
Human Resources Daily Chronicle Attn: Copy editor 1586 Barber Greene Road, DeKalb, IL 60115
