We need a reporter for HoustonPress.com.

HoustonPress.Com has an immediate opening for a daily news reporter. We're looking for a Houston-based, deadline-capable journalist who has a thorough understanding of the local landscape. We need an agile, indigenous web animal to report on and riff off of the day's stories.

We are not after aggregation or news-wire copy; we want insight, voice, humor and sophistication, along with an innate feel for SEO and social media. You would be the architect of your own work -- four original posts daily, each containing a bright idea of your own as well as, dare we ask, aggressive original reporting.

This is a full-time position with competitive salary and excellent benefits. Interested and qualified applicants should send a cover letter, résumé and four work samples, along with two proposed story ideas for daily posts on HoustonPress.com, to: Hou-news-reporter@voicemediagroup.com

SEO and social media are just a fact of life and business these days. But 4 articles a day is pretty steep. They're not going to get very well-researched or well-planned (and probably not very well-written) articles with a quota like that. Also, what y'all NEED is a proofreader. Just sayin'.

Hahaha really, you want an investigative reporter who gives a shit about SEO and pumps out 4 articles a day. So you want a click bait guy/gal and not a reporter. Should stipulate that more clearly. The fancy title is bs.

How do I qualify? I haven't been to college or done anything related to journalism but my trolling is second to non.
