WEB/SOCIAL/CLAM PRODUCER - KHQ
KHQ-TV has an immediate opening for an expert clam digger. This position will be responsible for locating, digging up, preparing and supplying the entire newsroom with fresh clams. OK, not really, but if you're the kind of person that sees that and is still reading out of intrigue, then you might be the person for us. What we’re really looking for is a creative web/social/digital producer. Make no mistake, this isn't a position that includes building a website, but rather contributing content to all of KHQ's digital channels.
This isn't a position for someone who needs constant direction. We are looking for a self-starter. Someone who goes out and makes things happen because they simply can't sit still waiting for someone to tell them what to do. We still have those people in place that will guide you on what to do, but wouldn't it be better if you were just like, “Yeah, I already got that.” Yes, it is! And that's what we're looking for.
In the world of web/social we're always on a deadline, which makes for an exciting day of work! In this role, you're a CONTENT HUNTER. Plain and simple. There is no down time. Even when there's down time. It's a fast-paced environment and we need someone that thrives in those situations. Attention to detail is a must. In fact, somewhere in this posting is a sentence written in Yoda-speak. Find it. Tell us what it is in your cover letter.
Expert knowledge of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat is crucial. Not just “I look at Facebook every day.” We need someone who understands the science behind these platforms. Someone that understands which methods work and which ones don't. Someone who understands the insights.
Writing and CMS experienced also preferred as keeping KHQ.com fresh with new content is a major part of this job. Not sure if you're a good writer? Don't worry, writing test give you we will.
What's in it for you? Working at the market's number one local news station. We're a station that isn't bound by the restraints of the giant corporate handcuffs. We're a family-owned company that isn't afraid to try something new. We're always looking for the next best thing and creativity is not only encouraged but expected. We need someone to think outside of the box while maintaining composure to the daily ambiguity that comes with working in news. Also, free coffee. We have free coffee. And ping pong. And sometimes a working arcade machine. Oh yeah, speaking of arcade machines, we also recently launched a TWITCH channel, which means you could have the opportunity to get PAID to play video games! It's pretty awesome. Working here is pretty awesome. If you're pretty awesome, send us a cover letter, resume, a video of you singing “Don't Stop Believin' by Journey (Optional. But it'd be cool if you did.) and the most amount of clams you've ever dug up in an hour. Our Clam Division isn't up and running yet, but like I said, we're always looking for the next big thing. You never know.
