Entry-level reporter @ N.C. newspaper

This is about as entry-level of a journalism job as you can find:

The High Point Enterprise, a 20,000-circulation daily newspaper in central North Carolina, seeks a reporter.

"Even if you have limited experience (including college newspaper, internship), if you can demonstrate strong reporting, writing, grammar and communications skills and have a passion for intensely local coverage, we would like to know more about you," the ad states.

Reporter will "cover everything from city and county governments to festivals and nonprofits, to public safety to schools and beyond; providing plenty of behind-the-scenes human interest features; identifying and examining trends; writing about people – what they do, how they do it, why the do it, how well they do it, the agony and the ecstasy and everything in between of life."

Before March 9, Send cover letter, resume and your best six clips to Joe Feeney, city editor, The High Point Enterprise, P.O. Box 1009, High Point, NC 27261.
