---Ability to multi-task and excel under deadline pressure, using time efficiently in a 24-hour newsroom.

---Skill at collaborating in a cross-functional environment and adapting in a rapidly changing industry.

---This job includes some evening and weekend work.

This role requires a valid driver's license, reliable transportation, and the minimum liability insurance required by state law.

Hometown Life and the Observer & Eccentric Newspapers publish daily online at www.hometownlife.com and produce 10 print editions; five weekly and five twice weekly. Coverage area includes the communities of Birmingham, Farmington, South Lyon, Milford, Northville, Novi, Plymouth, Canton, Livonia and Westland. You will have the opportunity to have your work featured in neighboring NETWORK publications, namely the Detroit Free Press and Livingston Daily.

You will be working in thriving large and small communities within an easy commute to downtown Detroit. Recreation areas abound for running, cycling, boating and more along with a vibrant nightlife - whether downtown Detroit, Royal Oak or many of the communities you will be covering.
