    What type of experience is needed here? Just out of college, or daily newspaper experience?

    Given the salary, they can't be too picky. Or used to not be. In today's market, maybe they can be.

    If you're pretty good, you might get this as a new grad. Best bet is a second job, someone with 1-3 years experience at a paper after college.

    Good points: It's close enough to Boise to go there. Bad point: It IS a small paper and you'll always be playing second fiddle to the big brother (Idaho Statesman) next door, whether its BSU, high schools or anything else.
  4. Don't worry. I doubt this job will be filled. The paper has a habit of posting jobs and the eliminating the position.
