"The Hippo" takeout writer (not sports, but interesting)

Discussion in 'Journalism Jobs' started by Pulitzer Wannabe, Sep 20, 2007.

  1. Anyone know about this place. Legit? Truly competitive salary?

    Company: HippoPress Manchester
    Position: Features writer looking for the next step
    Location: Southern NH (north of Boston), New Hampshire
    Job Status: Full-time
    Salary: Negotiable
    Ad Expires: October 24, 2007
    Job ID: 829689

    The Hippo, New Hampshire’s largest weekly with more than 175,000 readers, seeks an aggressive, innovative reporter who knows how to cover a beat and wants to write magazine-style feature stories.

    This is NOT a job for a green reporter. This is a job for a reporter looking to jump from a smaller paper or magazine to the big time — the features section of a big city daily, a top position at a big city alt or even a staff job at a national entertainment magazine. This is also a perfect job for a reporter who’d like one day to be the editor or publisher of his or her own free newspaper or magazine. Looking for something to get you from planning board coverage to rock star interviews? We can help you get the clips you need to make the leap.

    For reporters in northern New England, The Hippo offers a unique opportunity to get big city clips without the Boston commute or real estate prices. If you are a self-starter with drive who is able to enterprise never-before-reported stories and work your beat, we want you to work for us. Cover the ever-changing southern New Hampshire area — from the people and politics to the entertainment scene. Check out our mix of stories — music, food, nightlife, the arts, politics, news and more — on www.hippopress.com.

    We offer competitive pay and health and dental benefits in a market where $600-per-month one-bedroom apartments are common. Applicants must have at least three years of post-collegiate newspaper experience.

    Salary requirements should always scare someone off.

    They were publishing a free commuter-targeted tabloid, competing against the well-entrenched Union Leader. It's still around, but their ambitious plans (they were hiring a sportswriter six months or so ago) seem scaled down; they have revamped their flag to do away with the color. Must be trying to save on ink costs.
