    The Bulletin, a growing five-day-a-week newspaper in Philadelphia, is looking to add several sports writers to our staff over the next few months. Candidates will be expected to attend high school games and write everything from recaps and previews to features and profiles. We are seeking talented people - both in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs - who are enthusiastic, hard-working and can write about a wide variety of sports.

    Newspaper experience is a plus, as is layout/pagination experience with Quark. This is a great opportunity for those looking to get their foot in the door at a blossoming newspaper in a major city.

    If interested, please send a resume and writing clips to:

    Bulletin Sports Department 1518 Walnut St., Suite 1010 Philadelphia, PA 19102

    or email us at sports@thebulletin.us

    A friend works at the Bulletin and hates it ... low pay, unorganized staff, etc. Only for those truly desperate for employment.

    Bulletin says it has two more openings on its "expanding" staff.


    The Bulletin, an expanding daily newspaper in Philadelphia, is looking to add two full-time employees to complement our sports staff.

    We are looking for one sports writer to cover mostly high school sports in and around the Philadelphia area. Job responsibilities include writing game recaps, previews and features on various high school sports. Secondary responsibilities include helping with layout of the sports section on QuarkXPress and helping to edit other stories.

    We are also looking for a layout specialist to handle the bulk of the page design responsibilities. This person must have extensive knowledge of and experience with QuarkXPress, in addition to 2-3 years of experience laying out newspaper pages. Secondary responsibilities include gathering and compiling scores, standings and other agate.

    Candidates for either position must have excellent spelling and grammar skills and knowledge of AP style, in addition to an all-around understanding of different sports.

    The Bulletin publishes Monday through Friday, meaning the bulk of the hours are Sunday through Thursday. Candidates will be expected to work nights and weekends and must be trusted to produce quality work under tight deadlines.

    We are looking to hire immediately, so please send a cover letter, resume and 2-3 clips (either writing or layout samples) to Drew Silverman at dsilverman@thebulletin.us or

    Drew Silverman 1518 Walnut Street, Suite 1010 Philadelphia, PA 19102

    No phone calls please.

    I'm a newbie..are your chances of getting considered slim if you're not from the Philly area?
  9. judging purely from the responses in this thread...it seems like your chances of being considered would be excellent if you sent in a resume.

    The ad doesn't say anything about having to be from the area. You don't know your chances unless you apply. Might as well apply and at worst you lose some postage money and don't hear back from them.

    is it really a growing paper, or is the wording of the ad wishful thinking? I thought big-city PM's were headed the other direction...

    How many on staff? How aggressively do they cover Eagles, Phillies etc... ?

    I don't really know anything about the paper, but I think they mostly use AP for the big boys and the staff covers high school stuff ...
