Statehouse correspondent for large Penn. paper

The Harrisburg Patriot-News, a 100,000 circulation daily newspaper, is seeking a reporter to cover state politics, locally-related Washington politics, and write other high-impact enterprise stories about central Pennsylvania and its residents.

"We don't want process stories," the job posting states. "We want a reporter who can break news on the Web and write interesting, in-depth stories for print. This reporter must be comfortable writing analysis and opinion. We want someone who will ask themselves why a reader would care about an issue and write a dynamic story with that in mind. Beyond politics, this reporter will also tackle high-profile enterprise relating to just about any local issue -- or sometimes will simply be asked to jump into the story of the day. "

Send resumes and clips to Executive Editor David Newhouse at dnewhouse@patriot-news.com or The Patriot-News, 812 Market St., Harrisburg PA 17101.
