    In the coming days we will be officially posting an opening for assistant sports editor/high schools at the SunSentinel. We are looking to move quickly with this hire. If interested, send resumes to glee@sunsentinel.com

    The SunSentinel seeks an assistant sports editor who is responsible for high school sports coverage for the 100 schools in Broward and Palm Beach counties. This editor, based in South Florida, will be in charge of the editorial content for print and digital.
    The successful candidate will be aggressive in breaking news, features, and enterprise stories; create and manage content for the web; promote the Sun Sentinel's coverage through broadcast appearances, and use social media as a journalistic tool.
    We're looking for a versatile, talented editor who knows how to juggle multiple assignments and can conceive and execute good ideas on deadline. Strong digital skills are expected, including the ability to assist in management of high school content on our website. This job will require strong writing and digital skills.

    This would be a return home and a dream job for me.

    Definitely worth at least throwing my resume into the mix.

    I probably will as well. I just need to pick my best stuff (its a no-brainer but there are probably going to be a lot of apps for this).

    Greg, if resume was already sent, do you still want the online application done?

    I would send through the link online. It is the formal process around here.

    So who hires an assistant sports editor first -- Indianapolis or Fort Lauderdale?

    No decision yet, apparently. I've been told they've gotten many applications and that there also may be a strong in-house candidate, but that's all for now.

    We are in the process of interviewing candidates for this position. A decision will be made in the next week or two.
