Job opps: Photo/graphics editor, Web producer at Stockton Record

Here's one from Chron assistant metro editor Audrey Cooper:

Here are some jobs at my ex-workplace in Stockton. My friend is leaving and they're replacing him with a photo/graphics editor. Contact would be Don Blount,

This is what my friend says about the job openings:

There’s my position, which Don hasn’t posted yet, but it will basically be director of photo or visuals editor (supervising photo and graphics departments). No layout/design skills necessary.

Then there’s the one below. I think there’s lots of flexibility in what this position actually does on a day-to-day basis. And they are desperate to fill it:, the online edition of The Record (61,000 daily, 72,000 Sunday) in Stockton, Calif., has an opening for a Web Content Producer. We’re looking for someone who is experienced in both copy editing and Web design.

The Web Content Producer will be responsible for posting news content and images from the print edition of The Record to the Web site, developing and designing special content pages, creating graphics, building photo galleries, editing multimedia presentations, moderating forums and blogs, maintaining events calendars, posting breaking news items, writing headlines and proofing content. This full-time position in the newsroom calls for some evening shifts.

The ideal candidate should have a bachelor’s degree and at least two years of copy editing experience, basic HTML knowledge and proficiency with graphics software such as Photoshop and Flash. This job also calls for someone with strong news judgment and communication skills.

The Record is at the heart of a competitive, growing market, less than two hours from the San Francisco Bay Area and Lake Tahoe. recently launched a full-scale redesign and is continuing to expand.

To apply, send a cover letter, resume and samples of your work (print or URLs) to Online Editor Megan McCoid, P.O. Box 900, Stockton, CA 95201, or e-mail
