    A weekly paper seeks a responsible sports editor to take the helm of the sports department covering Rockdale County and Conyers, a bustling metro-Atlanta community with a population of more than 80,000.

    Here, you’ll have the chance to create your own traditions and make your mark covering the county’s sports life as you see fit. The county boasts three Region 8 AAAA high schools and active youth sports organizations and recreation department.

    Applicants with at least one year sports writing experience preferred, although college writing and editing experience will be considered. Fluency in InDesign required, as one of your duties will be to lay out the sports pages. This position is currently 32 hours a week, going to 40 hours as football season starts. The company offers a competitive compensation package and a benefits program that includes Medical, Dental, Vision, and 401(K) as well as a company sponsored life insurance, and a long term and short term disability program.

    what do you think a gig like this would pay? More than 15 bucks an hour?

    With experience, yes. Without experience, no.

    Looking at the website, this looks like a one-man department. That might have gone without saying, but I wanted to say it anyway.

    I seriously doubt this job pays $15/hr.

    If it gets above $12/hr, I'll be surprised.
