    This is just a heads up. We've been given clearance to hire a sports designer/copy editor. I'll post complete details/job description Monday or Tuesday.

    Looking for candidate with strong design background. QuarkXPress and Photoshop skills a must. WARNING: This is NOT just a design job, there will be copy editing involved. So take a look over your AP stylebook.

    That's all I've got for now. Start putting together your portfolio, and look for job posting on here or journalismjobs.com in near future.

    hoosier - saying "so take a look over your AP stylebook" was witty. you really didn't think you'd sneak that one by us, did you?

    and since i was the first to get your embedded joke, does that mean i'm hired?

    FYI -

    Still waiting for final authorization to post job. Sorry for delay. Crossing fingers we can post Wednesday but I'm not promising anything. We do have authorization to open position, so we will in fact have an opening.

    Just keeping everyone informed.

    The Bakersfield Californian seeks a page designer to help achieve our goal of turning our cutting edge design into an award-winning section. Candidates must have strong visual design skills, including page layout, graphics and photo selection. Candidates also must have sharp copy-editing skills and a flair for writing accurate, compelling headlines. Applicants should be able to design pages quickly and efficiently using QuarkXPress. Familiarity with Photoshop would be a plus.

    We cover the ECHL Condors, D-League Jam and Cal League Blaze, Division I Cal State Bakersfield, Bakersfield College (JC) and 30 high schools. Area rich in current pro athletes, including David Carr, Joey Porter, Kevin Harvick and Casey Mears. Bakersfield also hosts the nation's largest single-class state prep wrestling tournament in March, along with many local auto and drag racing events.

    We're looking for a TEAM PLAYER who is open to guidance, helping on phones and willing, if needed, to help design other sections at times.

    The Californian is family-owned, and offers excellent benefits: medical, dental, vision, life insurance, 401K and more.

    Interest applicants should submit five PDF work samples, cover letter and resume to:

    I'll throw this out there, for what it's worth (I know Bakersfield jobs have been discussed ad nauseum here before).
    Town itself is so-so at best, but you can easily do a weekend in vegas, bay area, LA, San Diego or some pretty nice, relatively uncrowded beaches in the San Luis Obispo area.
    Heck, even Fresno!
