    • Regular engagement with your audience through social media. Familiarity with SEO practices and strategies.
    • The ability to work closely with another reporter.
    • Ability to write periodical long-form features and be part of our projects team.

    College beat reporter experience at a daily newspaper is preferred, but we'll definitely consider a strong preps writer.

    Thought I remembered seeing on Twitter that she was heading to Seattle to cover WSU/Gonzaga.

    You are correct. That was announced last month.

    I'm wondering why this isn't listed on the SD Union Tribune web site?

    Hey folks,
    We were pleasantly surprised with roughly 200 applicants for the job. Hopefully, I was able to respond to you all without anyone slipping through the cracks.
    For those of you still submitting resumes after the deadline, your clips will be kept on file, but will not be considered for this position. Sorry for the hard-line approach, but considering the number of applicants, I hope you all understand.
    Todd M. Adams and I will narrow down the list over the next couple of weeks.
    As usual, if you have any questions, email me. However, I likely won't respond immediately since I'm out on paternity leave.

    If he's hired at San Diego, can I have Matt's job in Colorado? ;)
