    This is my old position they are filling. If you have any questions about the area, duties or anything else, shoot me a PM. Also, if you're from out of town, I would be able to get you in contact with a leasing company that has some apartments in the area.

    Great staff and a fun place to work.

    Wary of?

    Just to be clear, I accepted a job close to family and friends, which is the only reason I am leaving this paper.

    It's an award-winning newspaper in a great community. Winters are cold, but it's a great place to start and build your career.
