    New Britain, Connecticut
    Job Status: Full-time
    Salary: Not Specified
    Ad Expires:
    October 10, 2008
    Job ID: 972965

    A group of small dailies in central Connecticut is looking for news and sports copy editors with strong English skills, good graphic sense, a love of precision and organization, rock-solid common sense, sensitivity toward the communities they serve, an interest in learning and immediately applying that knowledge and an ability to handle high-pressure situations with grace and creativity. (People interested in the sports copy editing job should also have extensive knowledge and interest in sports, including at the community level.) Applicants should be willing to work nights and weekends for starting-level pay — but they will get a lot of experience and responsibility, fast.

    The ideal candidate has worked with Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop and has a journalism degree and/or experience in journalism as writer and editor. Independent, conscientious and eager candidates are invited to send a resume, cover letter and any applicable clips or samples to mlevy@newbritainherald.com, mail them to the attention of Marc Levy at 1 Herald Square, New Britain CT 06050 or fax them to (860) 223-8171. We are looking to hire fast, so candidates already in or near central Connecticut are especially invited.

    Hard hittin' New Britain.

    I was told to never live there for fear of my life. So take that for what it's worth. I googled 'crime reports New Britain' and the sex offender count is REALLY high.

    I'm guessing on the salary that they'd pay, you might have to actually live in New Britain, which you definitely don't want to do.

    There was always that vibe driving around New Britain...that on every street corner lurked a skeevy old man hoping to take you for a "walk."

    That said, its bark--at least in terms of being a horrible place to live--is worse than its bite. It's just a crappy town. Not great, not a safe place in a bunch of spots, but I can think of five or six worse towns in CT alone.

    As for the gig...I'll be back in a minute.
