Indiana papers posting jobs again

I know times are tough, but it's good to see 16 jobs posted for Indiana newspapers at http://journalismjobs.com. I don't have an exact count from this time two years ago, but I'll bet it was under five.

I've gotten calls from a couple of editors with multiple positions to fill.

Enterprise reporting and digital skills appear to be in demand. Here's a look at some of the postings. See the website for more:

Anderson (GA reporter and features reporter)
"Ability to shoot photos and video"

Marion (government reporter)
"The reporter will be expected to deliver work in both print and digital formats."

South Bend (metro editor)
"Interest and ability to create and share stories through electronic platforms, including traditional websites and social media, is a plus."

Fort Wayne (online content reporter)
"This person will create and edit content for various platforms including websites, smartphones and other new and evolving online and digital technologies."

Munster (online content specialist)
"Reporting, assigning and editing in new and developing methods favored."

Shelbyville (reporter)
"Candidates with comprehensive photography skills will have a leg up. Computer, Web and online reporting skills are necessary."

Greenfield (government reporter, "watchdogs only")
"Looking for a reporter with canine instincts."

Whether it's just pent-up demand and/or a sign of better times in these communities, looks like good news for those with a passion for metro and community news.
