Job Opportunity: Hinton Parklander

Monday, 24 November 2014 14:03

From Dave Breakenridge - please contact directly if interested:

I have an opening at one of our weekly papers, the Hinton Parklander. We've previously posted for the job and had a couple of promising candidates, but they've found other work in the industry.

I'm wondering if you know of any recent grads who completed work terms who may be looking for full-time work in the industry. We're hoping to find someone with good knowledge of writing/layout, and I know Mount Royal is producing a lot of solid journalists.​
