Human Resources - Residency Program

Success - Article sent! close

The Daily Herald has a residency program for 4-year college graduates with limited journalism experience. This is a one-year program designed to further hone journalism and reporting skills while functioning in a community news reporter position. These are full-time positions with benefits. Applicants must have reliable transportation and be prepared to work a flexible schedule as needs dictate. Although some residents may eventually be hired into regular staff reporting positions, this is not the intent of the program. Copy editor residencies are also available. There are no set hiring cycles; residents can be hired at anytime throughout the year, depending on the needs of the Company.

Preference will be given to journalism (or other appropriate major) graduates who obtained newsroom experience while in school (i.e. internship, stringer for daily newspaper, staff of school newspaper, magazine, or other similar experience). The Daily Herald is not responsible for interview or relocation costs incurred.
