City:  Hays, KS
Newspaper:  The Hays Daily News
Job Description:  Have what it takes? The Hays Daily News, Kansas' best mid-sized daily three of the past four years, is seeking an enterprising reporter with a nose for features, investigative reporting and spot news. We are looking for someone who considers "office hours" whenever the story occurs and the workplace wherever that story leads them. We are looking for someone handy with a camera or videocamera and with the ability to pick the enterprise story idea out of a meeting agenda or a feature out of a tweet. We are looking for someone who has never missed a deadline and never will. It's a tough job — but in the best place to work.
Hays, America, is a special place, boasting a strong local economy, a bustling cultural center, low crime, the best schools and the best Oktoberfest. The HDN is part of Harris Enterprises, a six-paper newspaper group with a Pulitzer to its credit.  The HDN staff produces three regular glossy magazines — focusing on health, lifestyle and sports — that allow our reporters and photographers to shine, as well as a bevy of other niche products in both print and digital form.
