Online Writer & Copywriter
- Online Writer & Copywriter
Each day, thousands of Campbell County citizens and their friends and family read COUNTY 17 to know what’s going on in northeastern Wyoming, why it’s important, and why they should care (we boast 22k users per week and 58k per month on COUNTY 17). We're getting ready to shake up the industry in Sheridan County, Wyoming, too, with the start of our COUNTY 3 news stream. We produce two magazines monthly (one print job - two covers) for our local communities as well, printing 16,000 copies. 82717 and 82801 are both lifestyle publications focusing on local people, local ideas, local issues and sometimes just something local that is cool.
We have a growing need for copywriters to take care of pitches for our news stream advertisers and copywriting for our design/branding/media clients.
So... What are you waiting for...wanna join our team?
The role we are filling will generate news leads and story ideas, fact check, write, snap pics, post and monitor our stream and its social media outlets. The stories will primarily be focused on community leaders, community programs, new businesses, great ideas, etc. (a traditional community gig). A successful applicant will also be good at copywriting for our advertisers (helping to prepare their "pitches" on our stream - think of it as a cooler way of describing sponsored content) and with copywriting for design clients (non profits, annual reports, print media, etc.). Sound like fun? It is. But it takes hard work and discipline to do the job well.
It would be perfect to find somebody who could do everything we're looking for, but we also realize that you may be ready to make a change or have a lot of past experience in one area. If you think you'd be a good fit or have the drive, determination and will to learn, turn in an application.
We would love to have somebody living in, or willing to relocate to, Gillette or Sheridan, Wyoming work within one of our offices. However, we realize that it's sometimes hard to find the right person. We're willing to consider applicants who would work remotely if they have the right skillset and attitude, and this position could be done remotely with phone interviews if you're a self-starter. This position is advertised as part-time, but we have plenty of work to make this a full-time position immediately. We can also accomodate multiple part-time people, with our focus being on getting the right people who want to do the work.
The right candidate will not only be able to distil a topic and accurately relay its key points, a successful member of our team is extremely efficient, excels at time management and hits strict deadlines with a smile. While a journalism and photography background would be rad, neither is required. We’re a pretty laid-back and open-minded bunch. Literacy, a strong sense of self and the ability to positively represent our brand at all times might just be enough to wow us...
